Spooky and weird...just like the better episodes of "Thriller".
25 October 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Amos Wilder is a weird man who has long studied the occult. When his nephew visits, he makes the younger man swear to a weird oath. When Amos kills himself, the nephew keeps his promise to stay in Wilder's mansion 24/7 and daily check on his burial vault daily. And, before dying, Amos also mentioned something cryptic about 'Andrew Bentley' and neither his nephew nor the nephew's wife understand what this means. The nephew follows the instructions completely...and one day he finds a weird man with hypnotic powers trying to get into the vault....and it turns out to be Bentley! But why? What does he want with Amos' body?? Well, the answers apparently are written in a letter Amos left...explaining this IF such an occurance takes place.

So, is this worth seeing? If you love creepy atmospheric shows, this definitely IS creepy and weird...mega-weird! And, it's also highly original...a sharp contrast to the very mundane episodes of the beginning of season one. Worth seeing and spooky.
