Definitely the best episode in the series with the always brilliant Peter Cushing playing an evil twisted former nazi death camp guard, whos interest in keeping animals imprisoned in his basement, now extends to human beings. Great support from Brian Cox, some edge of your seat scenes and some nice twists, guarantee an entertaining slice of suspense.

Joseph Cotton is well cast and superb as an arrogant self obsessed movie star struggling to come to terms with his waning popularity and seeking comfort by hitting the bottle. He steals the show as a truly loathsome character and its difficult to sympathise with someone who is the creator of his own downfall. I wonder how many real life stars this story was based on. Highly watchable.

An entertaining addition to the series in which youre never too sure which direction the story will take. A young Stefanie Powers plays her part well and adds to the enjoyment.

Just watched this on Youtube and i consider it to be one of the stronger episodes. Fine performances from Tom Adams, who makes a very convincing con man, (full of superficial charm), and Julie Harris as a vulnerable widow, do well to make this very watchable right up to the dramatic ending.
