OUTER LIMITS: Cry Of Silence / Daystar Productions - 1964

It's Monday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. We gots one of the last episodes of the series starring Eddie (THE DEVIL'S RAIN) Albert, June (FOLLOW THE SUN) Havoc and Arthur (CAT BALLOU) Hunnicutt. In the third and last season, running on a low budget, there are only 3 actors and tumbleweeds serve as the monsters in this story of an invisible visitor from space.

Eegah!! sent us over a soundclip from this episode, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the giant bat, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula! Here's our audio offering for... Cry Of Silence!

Andy and Karen Thorne are lost and in the middle of a deserted valley, Karen is injured after falling down a steep rocky hill. Hey, at least they gots a nice '64 Mercury convertible!

They get trapped and then attacked by a roaming gang of tumbleweeds!!

Then, there's a mysterious figure that mysteriously helps them get free of the mean old dusty attacking tumbleweeds...

The old man lives in the area so he takes Andy and Karen to his place, and, his wife has disappeared. Besides all that, he's acting mighty strangely!

They are attacked by a horde of frogs, so, Andy puts one in water and it dissolves, giving evidence of visitors from space?

They surmise that the old man is possessed by an alien and try to communicate with it, but communication breaks down.

In a totally surrealistic scene, Andy tries to make sense of the weird situation. Suddenly, one of the scoops on the tractor swings down and nearly bonks him on the head!

Andy ends up communication with the alien force after he hypnotizes himself with a swinging spoon!

Very cool Post!

I wish the powers that be would issue the "Outer Limits" in a better format than double sided discs that don't always play!

Not one of the better episodes of an otherwise terrific series.
