THE OUTER LIMITS / "The Forms Of Things Unknown" Season 1 Episode 32 - 1964

In this wild tale, two female friends poison Andre, a sadistic blackmailer, then while fleeing, they happen upon an isolated house containing a time machine, yeah! Kasha, his lover, and Leonora, the daughter of the blackmail target, fight to bury him before the idealistic inventor Tone Hobart is able to re-animate the murdered man, by tilting him back into the past...

This one stars Vera (PSYCHO) Miles, Cedric (THINGS TO COME) Hardwicke, Scott (FREDDY'S NIGHTMARES) Marlowe, David (AROUND THE WORLD UNDER THE SEA) McCallum and Barbara (IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE) Rush.

The story starts with a seemingly out of control Rolls Royce lurching along a mountain road.

The driver, Andre, he wants to stop and have a dip in a lake. While he frolics in the water, well, his girlfriend poisons his drink and Andre goes down for the count. They take his body and put it the trunk of the car...

And, wouldn't you know it, Andre disappears, freaking the girls out but good.

Leonora just starts running, Kasha follows her and they end up at a remote house in the woods.

Inside, they meet inventor Tone Hobart, he explains that he has devised a time machine and that's why they can't find Andre, he has tilted time and brought him back to life!

Just wanted to show this strangely lit shot, Vera almost looks like the space girl in THE ASTOUNDING SHE-MONSTER!

Leonora needs a stiff drink after hearing that Andre is still alive, but, where in the Hell is that sadistic son of a bitch?!.. Well, he has found the house and invites himself in.

Tone has a heart to heart with Colus (who's blind), he has made a big mistake by bringing Andre back to life, but, what to do?..

Tone tells Andre all about the mistake he's made and threatens to kill him. But, Tone is hypnotized by a moving metal toy. Andre just takes the gun away from him, he grabs Kasha and they drive away into the night...

Things don't go that well for Kasha, she jumps out of the moving car, then, Andre tries to run her over but puts the car in a ditch and he dies from the accident!

Back at the ranch, Leonora runs into the room with the time machine and gets tangled in the wires. Tone untangles her and tells her to get out of the room!

The others watch as Tone manipulates the machine...

He assumes a position in the wires and he disappears into time. So, check in Wednesday when we return with another load of terror, just 4 U, here, at The Dungeon!!

That scene above with Tone and Colus has just about one of the best lines I've ever heard in a weird story (when Tone describes his talk with Andre), but of course I won't give it away.

Hi Grant, I think you should give us that line, we'd love to hear it, we don't do spoiler alerts anyway, please share...

Grant said...

I'm kind of glad you asked.
The Andre character seems like someone always looking for kicks, without much deeper reasons (you get the feeling that even the blackmail plot is part of that). In that scene in the woods, Tone says to Colus "I was trying to explain to him how he'd been dead, and how I had brought him back to life. He was amused. He wasn't terribly interested."

Even if you don't actually hear him say it, I think that line fits Andre perfectly. Either way, it's a great line.

And, we thank you Grant, you're a pal -

Grant said...

I was glad to.

I don't like the Andre character of course when it comes to the blackmail and what he tries to do at the end, but his general attitude always entertains me.
