Intriguing and Deceptive
7 March 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

"Don't Open Till Doomsday" is an intriguing episode of "The Outer Limits". The mystery of the disappearance of the bridegroom in 1929 after receiving a mysterious Pandora Box and the situation of the newlyweds in 1964 gives the expectation of a great episode. Unfortunately the story is awfully resolved with a deceptive and forgettable conclusion. My vote is six.
