Tonight's Scary Show -- Twilight Zone: 'The Grave'
It's Halloween week. For those of you who are still up, we once again have a special treat.
All this week, the Dorchester Times is airing the scariest five episodes of the classic TV show, "The Twilight Zone."
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 groundbreaking series -- we've found these 30-minute programs to be wildly creative, spine-tingling tense. Imagination and solid story lines carry these shows, whose quality far surpass any of the "scary shows" produced today.
Tonight's episode is called "The Grave."
Lee Marvin plays Conny Miller -- a hired gun who misses killing his target, the evil Pinto Sykes, who is instead gun downed by the local townsfolk. At a bar, several of the townspeople tell him that Sykes vowed to reach up and grab Conny if he ever dared to visit his grave. After a drunken wager, Conny decides to prove his courage by doing just that, leading to one of the creepiest moments of the program's history.
Enjoy tonight's episode. But be sure to leave an extra light on...
