| 1970s Thriller That Feels More Like A 1970s Cop Show
This TV movie, or should I say pilot episode, has the look and feel of your average 1970s cop show rather than something more like the Twilight Zone (which I was under the impression it was something like Twilight Zone).

I love a lot of the 1970s made for TV movies because they had some good one back then - of course there were some bad ones too and this movie I would put in the latter category.

I just could not get into this one. I like Lloyd Bridges and the other actors are fine too but the overall look and feel really messed up what should have been an eerie atmosphere. Instead, we have cold, sterile looking 1970s police show - and that is not "me".

I'm not saying this is an awful film, I'm only saying I could not get into it like I was hoped to do.
