| Supernatural shenanigans with an old star
MADNESS ROOM is episode 17 of the first season of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE and notable really for an intriguing director/star team. The director is John Hayes, a real B-movie veteran of the '60s and '70s, while the old-time star is an ever-weary Stuart Whitman playing the husband in the story. It's a pity the two of them didn't have better material to work with.

The narrative is a supernatural-focused threesome about a trio of investigators who begin to investigate a spooky old house after playing with a Ouija board. They soon discover a bricked-up old room that leads to the titular madness, but not before a predictable twist or two that you'll easily see coming. Sadly, memorable stuff is in short supply in what is rather a middling episode.
