The episode that scared me the most is "Living Doll".
CBS (ended 1964)
|"The Obsolete Man" that featured a superstate that had outlawed religion.|
Yeah that one scared the heck outta me when I was little, so did the one with the homacidel doll, & the one where the dead guy keeps calling the old ladies house, now that im older though i find them all somewhat funny, in a morbid, iroonic, & hope this never happens kinda way.
"Living Doll" was kinda creepy, but I saw the Simpsons parody of it before the actual episode, so I had lass impact. "Nightmare at 20,000 feet" is also really good. Ironically I think the monster in the episode is scarier than the monster in the movie.
But, there is one episode that really gets to me, "Midnight Sun," it is just so uncomfotrable to watch. The tension builds, it is great but scary.
I find episodes like "The Obsolete Man" and "Number 12 looks just like you" scary in a different way, the social comentary way.
I think "The Midnight Sun" is one of the scariest. There's something about the intensity of the acting and the way it's shot that feels real. As a teacher "It's a Good Life" is scary, too. That little freckle-faced kid looks sweet and innocent, but when he starts to talk about "good" and "bad", and the way the adults all act around him, it's creepy!
The most scariest Twilight Zone episodes are the ones that have a great possibility of happening. This includes The Obsolete Man, The Monsters are due on Maple Street, The Hitch-Hiker, and The Midnight Sun.
Oh, and anything involving dolls or mannequins are automatically scary.
"The Living Doll" gets my vote for the scariest, but "It's a Good Life" runs a pretty close second. Just the idea of a kid that young with the ability to wish any sort of fate upon you is chilling. I don't think I'd deny a kid like that his dessert just because he didn't eat his greens! lol
