    This is a very interesting episode. It begins with a joyful wedding reception and promptly moves to an eerie box labeled "Do Not Open Till Doomsday." This box contains a strange creature with an unusual ability: it can transport people into the box (shrinking them in the process). Of course since the box arrives at a wedding reception, one of the people captured by the creature is from the wedding party (i.e., the groom). Once the groom cannot be found, time passes by until another victim is captured by the creature. Eventually the episode reaches a climax with a surprise ending. Vintage Outer Limits!
