  • A very nasty money lender goes to collect money from an older gentleman with a very unusual machine that shows the future and the past as well as other weird events that can happen.

    This is probably one of the very best Night Gallery episodes, so its well worth viewing. The episode has good acting performances especially by one of my favorite character tv actors and that is Ross Martin. The characters in the episode are well fleshed out and you really get a good glimpse at how bad the money lender actually is. Very creepy and has a great ending to boot. A flawless episode. There isnt a lot of scare/shock value, but thats not needed here: Just what you see around you is good enough to work in this episode. This episode features some really gross looking ghouls that are watching whats going on and is used in the opening of the regular episodes.
