Tonight's Scary Show -- Twilight Zone: 'Mr. Garitty & The Graves'
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 still 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 "Mr. Garrity and the Graves."
It's 1890 and the tiny desert town of Happiness, Arizona, has seen more than its share of murder and death. Townsfolk are joyous and hopeful to see their dearly departed loved ones again after a stranger named Jared Garrity resurrects a dead dog and promises the same for the town cemetery -- for a small payment, of course. Long before zombies were cool, "The Twilight Zone" used the living dead to provide a glimpse into the true hearts of the plain old living.
Enjoy tonight's episode. But be sure to leave an extra light on...
