Right up there with Nightcrawlers
25 December 2006 | by psicosismarkSee all my reviews

In one of the most surrealistic episodes the "new" Twilight Zone produced (sadly in the not so highly rated third season that aired only in syndication due to CBS canceling the series after the closing of season two) Sharon Miles played by Deborah Raffin is troubled by strange human like shadows that keep appearing in the walls and objects all around her. She commits herself to an institution and is helped by a doctor eager to find out what is going on. The art & visual aspect of this episode is right up there with the famous Nightcrawlers that many hail as being the best of the series.

After watching the episode I was surprised hardly anyone talks about it or remembers it. If it was shown in either season one or two on CBS I think it would be more remembered and given the respect it deserves, but the fact that at this point the show was reduced to syndication and late night airings it is underrated. The episode is included on the seasons 2 & 3 "Image Entertainment" 7 DVD set release and is highly recommended.
