When I was little, I used to get scared overhearing adults discussing TV shows and movies I was still too young to watch. Trilogy of Terror, for example. A vague mental image of a doll that comes to life and attacks people was all I needed to freak me out.

One show that really got to me (surprising, considering I was in my early teens), was an episode of the new Twilight Zone. The one with the boy who's afraid of his grandmother, who really is scary and turns out to be a witch. Really frightening. I see now it was adapted from a Stephen King story by Harlan Ellison, which explains how it managed to be such a well-constructed little horror tale.

Speaking of the Twilight Zone.....another one that creeped me out was the classic episode where a very young Billy Mumy had a toy telephone that allowed him to talk to his grandmother from beyond the grave.

That one, and the one where the lonely old spinster kept getting calls from her deceased boyfriend as a result of a downed power line that landed on his headstone in an old cemetery. 

It seemed that in the Twilight Zone, long distance was the next best thing to being there  Wink

     It was YEARS before I'd answer the phone, if it rang at night.

Speaking of U.F.O. do you remember that one?
It was sometime in Earth's future, when an Earth Defense Force group known as SHADO silently hunted down a group of aliens who landed on Earth and infiltrated society.  That was a great show, even moreso when Commander Straker would pull up in that custom-made car with the batwing doors. I loved that car!

Oh yes, how could I forget that series! I had a superbig crush on Gabrielle Drake in her purple wig and I wanted to knock Ed Nelson on the head and steal his car: I probably would have had a hard time lying on my back driving the thing though.  TeddyR

There was one UFOepisode which chilled me: one of Straker's men lost his wife prior to joining SHADO and when an alien was killed, the autopsy revealed that some of his wife's organs were in the alien's body.  Buggedout Buggedout

I remember that episode.  Another one I remember is where an alien had one of SHADO's men cornered in an outside area, always taunting him and making fun of him because the guy couldn't see him.

It was a big cat and mouse game, until the alien was finally killed when the guy spun around in a circle with an assault rifle and killed the alien with a lucky salvo.   

     The alien was slightly out of sync with time. UFO was a show I never missed.

Ran across this episode of The Muppet Show again recently. I found this bit creepy and disturbing as a kid, and growing up seems to have only made it more so.

     The show "FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE SERIES" had some creepy episodes, as did the first season of WAR OF THE WORLDS.

I'd forgotten how scary the final episode of Twin Peaks was ~ I can still hear Kyle MacLachlan saying "How's Annie? How's Annie?"  Buggedout Buggedout

     "The Tune In Dan's Cafe" episode of NIGHT GALLERY; it was on the same night as  "Green Fingers", about the haunted jukebox that played the same song, and got stuck on the line, "Till death...."

 True story. My younger brother and I were home by ourselves one night; I was sixteen, he was ten. We didn't know that the song from TTIDC was a real song until it came on the radio....

     We ran out of the house so fast, we didn't even lock the door.

"The Doll" episode of NIGHT GALLERY.  there was another NG, I can't remember the title but it involves a Nazi who's hiding out in South America and becomes obsessed with escaping into a painting, that one creeped me out pretty good.

"The Masks", "Number 12 Looks Just Like You" and "He's Alive" episodes of TWILIGHT ZONE.

A lot of the monsters from THE REAL GHOSTBUSTERS were pretty scary: The Boogeyman, Mrs.  Rogers, The Sandman to name a few...

I remember that one. It had Sam Jaffe as a former prisoner who recognized him. And I remember a woman mocking his desire for a simple, peaceful life.

Looked up the title, and it's The Escape Route. Must try to find that one and watch it again.

The Professionals episode Discovered In A Graveyard is very creepy in parts ~ one of the main characters is shot down and left for dead by an assassin and the character is shown at his front door, his white T shirt riddled with bloody holes waiting for the hearse to come and collect him.  Buggedout Buggedout*

*SPOILER:


He does survive the shooting.

I think the last ten seconds of this thing speak for itself.

Re my first post about the McCloud episode Someone's Out To Get Jenny  Buggedout Buggedout

I ordered a McCloud set last month that has this episode on it and received it two hours ago. I watched it and got a panic attack from years gone by. It is still creepy and yes, it still scares me.  Buggedout Buggedout

But having said that: thank you Dennis Weaver, thank you Cameron Mitchell and thank you, Julie Sommars!  Cheers

The Department S episode The Ghost of Mary Burnham is a vague memory I have of being really scared where a man's wife is shot dead in front of him and the next night he returns home, only to find her standing on the doorstep smiling at him.  Buggedout Buggedout
