Evidently all young co-eds are dating or want to date one of their professors. That was the REAL supernatural portion of this episode! Supernatural thriller, demon summoning.

Spooky supernatural episode. Good one!

I rediscovered this series of OTR. I remember these mysteries growing up and I loved them then and I love them now. Going back one by one from the beginning, this one ranks in my top 5 so far.

A terrific tale of the supernatural. This story centers on a mirror with rejuvenating powers for it's owners. A man and his wife use the mirror to take the lifes of people who are in possession of it.

Excellent spooker. The imagination theater works as only radio can.

Two girls enroll in a college course on the supernatural and take on special projects for extra credit. One has a crush on him and wants to get to know him better, despite his being married to a sickly wife. At the professor's prompting, she takes home a speculum for her project, (which, according to my research, is not at all what is claimed in the episode!!!), a magical device used for divining the future. I want to go to a university that has a department in the paranormal and supernatural.

A college student, infatuated with her professor and his course in occult studies, becomes an unwitting victim when he lends her an ancient bronze mirror which acts as a doorway for evil to enter the world.

Great episode--4 stars. Very creatively written.

4 Stars... Story was pretty good. Didn't think the acting was great especially of the two college girls. But was a good listen. No commercials.

Actress Phoebe Dorin from this episode also played Antoinette, the companion of Dr. Loveless in The Wild Wild West tv series.

This one owes its plot to an old 50's British horror film called Curse of the Demon" (US title), British title was Night of the Demon.

This was a good episode as you knew all the characters and their motives from the start and therefore there weren't any real surprises. The one female student was a little too cliché, but still a character for the story. Chas - Speculum is what you found in your researches, but further research would've found it is also a type of metal used in mirrors for telescopes and some mirrors (usually about 2/3 copper and 1/3 tin + a little bit of arsenic).
