More Than We Wished For
13 June 2014 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

"The Miracle of Camafeo" takes us to a mission where people come to be healed. Among those in attendance are a man, his wife, and an insurance investigator. The man has faked an accident and is pretending paralysis. He has received a quarter of a million dollars from a bus company and has a plan. He must continue to appear an invalid or forfeit the settlement, or, even worse, go to prison for fraud. His plan is to enter the mission and come back healed by God. Who is to prove this because there are records of these miraculous interventions. It seems like a perfectly good plan. But this is The Night Gallery.

"The Ghost of Sorworth Place" involves a man, traveling through the countryside, who stops in a small village after meeting a striking blond woman. There are all kinds of rumors about her, a widow, and her late husband. As the man deals more and more with her, she becomes stranger and stranger, finally admitting to killing the husband because she couldn't tolerate him any more. The traveler is so taken with her, even after seeing spirits moving through the house, that he is willing to confront these evils. Quite a good ghost story.
