Tonight's Scary Show -- Twilight Zone: 'Night Call'

It's Halloween week. For those of you who are still up, we have a special treat.

All this week, the Dorchester Times will air the scariest five episodes of that 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 imaginative series -- we've discovered 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 "Night Call."  An elderly bed-ridden woman gets repeated phone calls late at night. The voice at the other end is garbled, yet ominous. He repeatedly asks "Where are you? I want to talk to you."  Frightened she asks the phone company to trace the calls.  When it's revealed who's making the calls, you'll be in for the scare of your life.

Enjoy tonight's episode.  But be sure to leave an extra light on...

  1. I used to love watching The Twilight Zone. Thanks for running this fun series for Halloween week.

  2. Rod Serling was an under-appreciated genius, I do believe.

    1. David, you're so right. I'm glad he's more appreciated now than ever. He was a WWII vet who pushed the boundaries of the mind, maybe because of the horrors he saw in the South Pacific. Too bad he liked his cigarettes so well. :(
