  • One of the all-time best Twilight Zone episodes.

    The relatively everyday setting of a department store becomes an eerie backdrop for this highly imaginative tale. What I found fascinating were the subtle editing and directing hints dropped throughout the episode, that not all the "people" you were seeing were actually people. The odd leg movements, stiff hand gestures, the tight shots of feet. They are suggesting the limited range of mannequin motions, though you may not realize it on the first viewing. The actors were well cast physically, which was essential to make the premise believable. What could have been cheesy, with the wrong actors or director, instead is a classic.
