Storyline

Al March is tortured by his failure to have stopped the bombing of an Army barracks in 1945 Germany. Awaiting surgery, he tells his sister that the two men and a woman he killed the night before were the same ones who had planted the explosives. Even though they had died in the blast, they had been chasing him for the past six years because he lived and they didn't. Written by Jay Phelps <jaynashvil@aol.com>

Not bad.
6 November 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This story from lights out stars John Forsythe and is one of about 15-20 old episodes of "Lights Out" that you can download for free at archive.org. While it's not a particularly distinguished episode, compared to the average show in the series, it's not bad.

The show begins by learning that a man (Forsythe) has just killed three people. However, he claims that he's no whacko--he's just killed three people who were out to kill him. Then he tells a long story about seeing these three people again and again--and it's either kill them or be killed. The show then ends in a manner most will be able to predict. While I never came close to loving this show, it wasn't bad and is worth seeing.
