    I don't mind them remaking this original show because I brings Hitchcick to audiences when they might never have discovered him. And I don't agree that updating the stories is wrong. First, Hitchcock, by and large, did not direct many eps and never wrote any, so it isn't that Hitch knew better. Also,and fans of Hitch were likely to be a desired chunk of the audience making these changes gave fans familiar with the storylines reasons to watch the old stories we knew by heart. Also, some of the plots were dated and needed updating to modern times and some of them were not exactly perfect and needed some lunching up. This ep, in particular, was pretty great, though, admittedly, not as good as the original. It doesn't help that audiences aren't as easily fooled by "the kinds of twists" found in the ending of this ep. But the original's direction was far superior.moreless
  • One window in the old, dark house has (accidentally?) remained unlocked - and there's a killer on the loose...

    It was a bad idea to remake the old "Alfred Hitchcock Presents", and showing these rehashes with the original classic intros and wrap-ups, but in a colourized form, somehow made it worse. This segment was about as enjoyable as the new show got to be, though; the story is close to foolproof, and, although this version is much less impressive than the version which played on "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" two decades earlier (and is very rushed, occupying as it does a severely reduced running time), it's good, ghoulish fun. For some reason, the people responsible for these new adaptations would keep monkeying around with the plotlines - as if the new bunch knew more about scary stories than Hitchcock did!moreless
