The Attack of the Petroglyphs
1 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

A boy falls in a hole which turns out to be a cave. In the cave are prehistoric drawing of hunters and their prey. As the woman, played by Louise Fletcher, investigates, she senses that there is someone moving around down there. Also, the petroglyphs begin to change from day to day. Nearby, people are losing livestock during the night. A local sheriff does what he can to balance what is going on scientifically with a land developer who has a lot to lose. It's just that the episode lacks much suspense and imagination. The curse of the 22 minute episode.
