His movies are brilliant, of course. But l sooo loved the TV episodes as a child! There are three specific ones that still haunt me to this day – The Jar, The Magic Shop and, especially, Where the Woodbine Twineth. OMG – that last one messed me up for years! It was about a girl whose doll would come to life & play with her. I remember the final scene of that show like it was yesterday- I couldn’t have been more than 8 or so when I watched that. Superb creepiness!
The Magic Shop. Hard to decide which kid is creepier – this one or the boy from The Twilight Zone episode “It’s a Good Life”:
Where the Woodbine Twineth. I’m getting the heebie jeebies just looking at the picture…
