  • There is a serial killer loose in the city killing nurses. Everyone is possible as the killer. No one knows who the killer is and when they will strike. A young nurse is called in to protect a sickly man at his creepy home in the woods.

    This is, by far, the BEST Hitchcock hour episode I have ever seen. From the start, you are thrusted into the middle of a sleepy town and put on notice right away of the terror that lies in this town. A serial nurse killer is on the loose. You eventually follow a pretty nurse as she handles herself during these terrible times. The last 30 minutes are riveting that you cant stay away from the creepy house that this nurse is staying at overnight, in the rainstorm. Who is the killer? Will this person strike again or will nothing happen...this is something you must see for yourself. The terror is so strong that you feel apart of the small group that is stuck in this house in the country with no where to hide. The ending is just so horrifying and unpredictable that you will never guess what will happen. Everyone is a suspect and everyone in the house is weird. Hitchcock at his finest!
