  • young couple buy a house on a seaside cliff-seems to be the perfect place but the house has a somewhat grim past.Why are there no mirrors?Seems strange that a large house has no reflecting glass? Curiosity gets the best of them and the rest is a THRILLER!

    The best of the best!The Hungry Glass is a classic and a must see episode from the classic series. The atmosphere,eery setting and the dialog which goes from light and cheery to downright eery uneasiness, will have you on edge throughout.Keep the lights off and don't look at any reflecting glass!This episode gave me nightmares for a long time as a child and it did the same to many others-William Shatner has never been better and the cast is wonderful-it explains the plot with great detail thru its top notch dialog and visuals--"The Hungry Glass" has a a chilling and disturbingly frightful feel- Classic television and my vote for the best episode of the series. [followed by the "Cheaters" and "A Wig For Miss Devore"] Make sure you see "The Hungry Glass"!
