  • I was ten years old when my Grandparents allowed me to watch Thriller's "The Hungry Mirror". The show frightened me so badly that to this day I am uncomfortable alone in a room with a mirror.

    I recall my parents would not let me watch any of the Thriller series because newspaper accounts claimed this television show was causing some people extreme mental harm. I would like to see this episode again to put my childhood demons to rest. I recall all the details as an adult. A woman ages, but the mirrors in her home remember her beauty. Her family locks all the mirrors in the attic but the woman, elderly, sees her young beautiful self in the picture window, falls through the glass to her death on sea rocks several feet below the house. A young couple buys the house, and replaces the mirrors, ending in tragedy. My fear that stays with me is the vision of the old hag trying to pull me into the glass.
