The Empty Apartment
15 November 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

A family moves into a San Francisco apartment building where the two young siblings Robert & Jane(played by Leif Garret & Dawn Lyn) investigate the empty apartment upstairs, only to discover a door that opens into an entirely different location, a cabin in the woods where a man chopping wood beckons to them, eventually showing interest in their older sister Peggy(played by Susan Dey) She sees nothing unusual at first, but when strange sounds and footprints show up, it becomes obvious that the man upstairs has a most sinister agenda in store... Eerie episode with a surefire horror premise of a secret doorway isn't quite the classic you'd hope for but is still quite memorable and effective.
