A young American couple rent an idyllic cottage in the Austrian Alps, complete with witches, curses, and an unearthly creature that 'lives' in the deep basement underneath.

In my honest opinion, this is one of the scariest, if not thee scariest shows they ever did. The cozy New York apartment, the Austrian cottage, the flattened tires, the 2 shadows, the snow, winds, the frightened Betty Spraig, etc. I love this episode. Back in the day, I had it on tape, and listened to it over and over and over. I dragged my mother and grandmother into my bedroom to listen to it. They got hooked on it. Listen to this one with the lights off, with a friend, and be prepared to have nightmares. Awesome story!

I have to agree, this is one of the best I have heard and now one of my favorites. Loved the atmosphere and even though I "could see it coming" there was a good deal of suspense.
