Nice to see Martin Landau back in the Twilight Zone.

I liked this one a lot. Great setting, well directed, good mystery. I was expecting some kind of little epilogue where it turned out that the doctor was right, and that the lighthouse was set off by a faulty mechanism or a mouse stepping on a button or something, but the fact that it's not there is fine.

A well told tale I thought.

This is an odd one, for the first time im going to have to disagree with tom.

I thought it was very mundane, effectively the wicker man but set in the states rather than scotland.

wasnt a fan.
