For those who wonder what my summary line means, it's a clever way to say don't criticize the particular segment for which I thought was terrific, and it's named "The Chateau", starring David Hedison and Pamela Franklin. I wasn't crazy about the other story, and I'll mention it in a bit, but this story is much better, plus it has the creep factor which I'm a big fan of. Other faces include Carolyn Jones, George Lindsay, Wendy Schall(her first of 19 episodes!), and Ed Begley Jr., and they all star in "White Lightning", which isn't as good as the other story, as it revolves around moonshine. I'll give it credit for being an original plot, but that's about as far as I'll go. Back to the better story, I must admit I had no idea the route it would take, and was pleasantly surprised. The glowing red eyes of the Pan statue was eerie, and the fog that surrounded it was also done fairly well. Hedison's character(Karl/Claude)made a pact with Pan to stay young forever, as long as a blood sacrifice was made. I decided to do a search on the Greek god Pan, but it turns out he wasn't really evil, so it's a curious decision to make him evil here, but it doesn't detract at all.
