  • Reclusive tycoon Jason Foster summons his heirs, whom he despises, to his New Orleans home on Mardi Gras. He tells them that they must wear specially designed masks until midnight in order to receive their inheritances. The heirs reluctantly agree.


    "The Masks" works on every level, the writing, the story, the acting is just terrific. All of the actors give great performances and are very believable in their roles. The dying family patriarch's speech to his heirs just before his death is one of the best moments of dialogue in any episode of The Twilight Zone. The episode is also a bit scary. Seeing the heirs wear their masks added just the right amount of chills to a very engaging and entertaining episode of one of the greatest television series ever made. "The Masks" is definitely not to be missed.
