  • Jeff Myrtlebank has a problem. Almost the whole town shows up for his funeral, and watches in horror as he raises up from his casket. He's not dead! Or is he? soon the town becomes very uneasy and afraid of him,all exept his lovely fiance.

    A must see for Zonies. The viewer is not really sure what gives, untill the GREAT ending! James Best pulls off another great performance as a Jim Lindsay/Roscoe P Coltrain type character. This is one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes. A lot of them, even the better ones let you kind of suspect where it is going. This episode has you scratching your head until the end.
