Bonnie has just moved into a new apartment. Next door a rowdy party is going on two days before Halloween. She appears to witness a woman being strangled by someone wearing a gorilla costume but passes out. When Bonnie calls in help from the Foundation, at first it all seems to have been a fever induced hallucination on her part. Is it all in her mind or will Bonnie be the next victim come Halloween?

Originally, Michael and Bonnie discovered Linda's body in a pit hidden beneath the porch of the Psycho House. See more »


Bonnie claims that the now-empty apartment was furnished (she even describes specific details, such as wall-hangings, a lamp, etc.), yet she had an extremely "narrow" view from a great distance and through two sets of windows that merely showed the gorilla-suited guy and the lady he was roughing up, so there were virtually no other details of the apartment's "surroundings" visible. Bonnie also says that the woman "knocked over a lamp as she fell", yet no lamp or other objects are visible through the windows as the lady falls over. See more »


Michael Knight: [to Grant] You know, some way your illusions are a lot more convincing than you are...
[moves towards exit, turns round]
Michael Knight: But I got some special effects of my own, like making you disappear for twenty years, man!

2 April 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

A completely offbeat Halloween episode, to be sure, this opens with a curious promise that the latter half doesn't quite match. A gorilla suit, a murder, and Bonnie searing it really happened, the case puts Michael's sleuthing skills to work. The solution to the crime rests with some technological trickery (surely futuristic for '84) and culminates in a loving "Psycho" homage. After that, it's your standard K.I.T.T. car chase, one good stunt and the bad guy goes down. It felt like the second half, which really embraces the holiday, skewed way too far into silly.
