Lovely young invalid Meg Kinderly has to fend for herself after she gets trapped in her spacious family mansion with a vicious killer who has just wiped out most of her family and all of the servants...
A modern revival of the classic science fiction horror anthology show The Outer Limits (1963). Episodes often have twist-endings and involve aliens. Sometimes, a story from one episode continues in a later episode.
A series of mystery-thriller stories, linked only by the character of The Hitchhiker, who would introduce and close each episode in the style of Rod Serling or Alfred Hitchcock. Occasional stories involved supernatural forces, but most plot twists stemmed only from the dark side of the human spirit.Written by

In worldwide syndication, the three 1983 episodes have been re-worked to remove all of 'Nicholas Campbell''s scenes. His scenes were re-shot with Page Fletcher and the opening/end credits altered to reflect this change. Presumably, this change was made to preserve continuity with all of the other Hitchhiker episodes. See more »
Until the past few years, the only thing I had remembered about this series was the haunting opening theme song. I have since watched many of the episodes, and I have a mixed review. For me, the show seemed to lose some creativity after the second season. The early episodes were often great, and almost every episode was clever, imaginative, and at times, somewhat creepy. For whatever reason, the later episodes just don't interest me the same way. But whether you watch an early show or a late one, this is a program that should be checked out, if only to hear that theme song...
