  • A greedy nephew wants his inheritance now!

    This is one of the episodes I remember as a kid that still scares me when I watch today. Roddy McDowall is an amazing actor and you really believe that his dead uncle is coming back from the dead just by how McDowall is reacting from the painting. This is one of the stories where the atmosphere is what is scary. The look and sounds of what is going on is the most terrifying. You never do see the dead uncle except for on the painting which shows the uncle getting closer and closer from the grave to the home door. This is just classic story telling done with a twist of Serling. This story is worthy of Poe!
