For me, it will always be the eerie McCloud episode Someones Out To Get Jenny where a heiress is almost driven mad by visions of her supposedly deceased boyfriend. There is one scene in that episode that nearly drove me buggers: the whole day, she's been hearing her boyfriend whispering "Jennnnnyyyyyyyyy...." to her and she tries to find refuge from the madness in her apartment.

The voice continues calling her name even in her apartment and as she stares in horror, the lifesize, faceless portrait of her boyfriend that she has painted on the wall comes to life, calling "Jennnnnyyyyyyyyyyyyyy........."  Buggedout Buggedout Buggedout

The "Force of Life" episode of Space 1999.  I swear it gave me nightmares when I was a little kid.

When I was really young this scene from The Brady Bunch really freaked me out. Not when I was watching it but later when I was thinking about it in bed. Something about Marica's ghostly "I must get out, I must have air!" really rattled my tiny tot brain.

The "Green Fingers" episode of NIGHT GALLERY was pretty creepy.  Actually, the NIGHT GALLERY intro was pretty creepy, too!

The finel episode of seaone one of Lost In Space entitled, "Follow The Leader."  It was the most chilling of any of the episodes, and worth it's weight in gold on any market.

After an earthquake causes Prof. Robsinson to fall into a lower level of a cave, he finds the tomb of an ancient warrior whose been dead for millenia.  The spirit slowly takes control of prof. Robinson thru a mask that holds his spirit inside of it.

As he slowly becomes more aggressive and violent, it appears nothing can stop the evil alien spirit from it's mission to resume conquering the galaxy.

This episode was a great example of what made LIS the great show it was, and had the writers stayed on course for this sort of great writing, the show would have had a few more good seasons, guaranteed.

That was the episode where they were trying to outdo each other,  scaring each other at a slumber party or something, wasn't it? 

In that same episode, didn't Alice open the fridge and find a skull with glowing red eyes in it?  That was a good one.

Another old show comes to mind here:

Do any of you 70's era guys and gals (like me) remember William Castle's Circle Of Fear TV show?  It was on in the early 70's on Channel 4.

There was an episode about a man and wife who bought or inherited a new house, with these six clear glass bottles on a shelf. Each bottle had the spirit of someone inside of them, and they would talk to each other in unintelligible tones.  That one worked it's own special fright magic on my young and fragile psyche  Buggedout

There were a few creepy Fantasy Island episodes, and one really got me. It was the episode with the young woman who has been mute since she witnessed her mother's murder, and wants to remember exactly what happened that night. On a dark and stormy night, she ends up getting startled and chased by this big, scruffy looking guy, who is reaching for her and making weird grunting sounds. It turns out to be the retarded half-brother she didn't know about, because his father, the kindly neighbour, kept him out of sight. Her mother fell down the stairs after being similarly startled by this guy's totally innocent actions.

Scared the living crap out of me.

"IT's A COOK BOOK!"

"To Serve Man", lol   One of the neatest classic Twilight Zone episodes ever.

Also, the classic Outer Limits episode with William Shatner, "Cold Hands, Warm Heart."  The celery stalk creature that would haunt Shatner in his dreams would freak me out....it had all that wild, floating hair and that evil downturned grimace as it floated like some ethereal being..

Believe it or not it was a "Happy Days" episode. I was probably about four or five. It was the episode where Ritchie, Potsey and Ralph go to this weird beatnik club. There was this gypsy looking woman reciting poetry about death. Back then scary women really bothered me more than monsters. That Chifon margerine commercial with Mother Nature, would scare me so bad I had to jump up in my Grandma lap.

For me, nothing was as creepy or as disturbing as the episode of Diff'rent Strokes that was used to teach kids about the dangers of pedophiles. The creepy old man who owned the bicycle shop was so BELIEVABLE. That episode pushed it to the limit and I'm not sure that any show on TV today would be willing to go that far. The 80's were something else with all those "Very Special" episodes of sit-coms.

Lagomorphs: menace or underutilized resource?

I think it was an episode of Night Gallery. All I really remember is that someone got a sculpture of a panther, one of those that were really popular in the '70s. One of these:



It had a demon or something inside it, and it's eye glowed red. It really creeped me out because my aunt had one of those sculptures, and every time we went to her house, I'd swear the eye was glowing. Also, since it was such a small light, I would be reminded of the image every time I saw a small, red pinpoint of light. Like, oh say, on an alarm clock in the dark. I still think about that sometimes, and it's still a little creepy.
