Tonight's Scary Show -- Twilight Zone: 'The Doll'
All this Halloween week, the Dorchester Times is airing the scariest five episodes of the classic TV show, "The Twilight Zone."
We won't be sharing these with our Facebook followers!
We've selected these five episodes of "The Twilight Zone" because, thanks to one of our more senior staff members -- who actually remembers when CBS aired this series -- we've found these 30-minute programs to be wildly creative, spine-tingling tense and yet family friendly. Imagination and solid story lines carry these shows, whose quality far surpass any of the "scary shows" produced today.
Tonight's episode is called "Living Doll" -- one of the most memorable "Twilight Zone" stories.
"Talky Tina" is a gift from a mother to her daughter Christie. It can talk, saying things like "I'm Talky Tina and I love you very much." But Tina's petty, bitter and mean stepfather Erik (Telly Savalas) thinks it talks too much, and is resentful of its presence. In his efforts to get rid of the doll, he gets more than he bargained for.
Enjoy tonight's episode. But be sure to leave on an extra light. Or maybe two...
