Storyline

An odd professor claims he can spot Martians, who masquerade as humans, using a pair of infrared glasses he wears. Only then can you see the third eyeball in the middle of their forehead. He relates his wild theory to a photographer sitting by him in a bar--and the man believes him. While playing around with infrared film, the photographer says he's snapped a shot of a man with three eyes. The two team up to convince authorities of their find.

Tight little thriller
24 January 2009 | by mikhail080See all my reviews

This episode of anthology series "Lights Out" provides some nice moments of acting, and some genuinely creepy moments. Burgess Meredith dominates the proceedings as a perhaps delusional -- or perhaps not -- eccentric spouting off about his belief that Martians walk among us. This expert character actor obviously has a lot of fun making his effete "Professor Lyman" come alive.

Meredith gets fine support from David Lewis as a photographer who gets drawn in by Lyman's outlandish tales, and starts to believe that the answer lies in his photographs.

And there's a priceless bit with a clueless policeman, that stretches the bounds of credibility till they break.

Not a bad way to spend a half of an hour, especially around Halloween.
