  • An unsuccessful writer and his wife moved into a remote - and haunted? - country cottage.

    Could the set-up for this mediocre episode have been more familiar? One may quickly note several influences - Tom Tryon's "Harvest Home" and Hammer's 1966 movie "The Reptile" being only the most obvious. Really, you'd think that, by now, horror writers with unstable marriages and fragile mental states would avoid such places. There's even a sinister old lady showing them around (as usual), whilst the portrait of cousin Zachariah seems almost to burn with inner life. Stuart Whitman, busily losing his marbles, gets terribly vexed about... cocoa, and may murder his wife for the lack of it. The actors work terribly hard to make something out of this nonsense, and Ellen Corby actually succeeds in her few on-screen minutes.
