My grandmother was babysitting one night. I woke up and walked downstairs. She was watching TV and let me sit with her for a bit. I remember seeing a man stumble into a room. There was a woman in a chair singing a song. Her feet had vines growing out of them. The camera slowly moved upwards.
That was all I needed to see. My eyes closed tight fearing her face being revealed.
I've since learned it was a segment titled Green Fingers from Rod Serling's 1972 series Night Gallery. It starred Elsa Lancaster as Mrs. Bowen. Watch the entire episode for free via HULU.
Devil in a Mason Jar
I only remember a mason jar on a barn shelf that was glowing red and pulsating. I also knew it had the devil trapped inside.
That's it. No memory of where I was or what came before. I know I saw it on TV. I not only hid my eyes, but ran out of the room in terror. This one's haunted me for a long, long time.
Thanks to the memory of an old friend though, I've discovered it's from a TV movie directed by a young Steven Spielberg in 1972 titled Something Evil.
I found it posted in several parts here. There are numerous Spielbergian touches before they became quintessential Spielbergian touches which makes it fun to watch.
Part Four soon.
