Directed and produced by genre icon Dan Curtis (Dark Shadows, Trilogy of Terror), this trio of terrifying stories from I Am Legend author Richard Matheson features performances by Patrick Macnee, Ed Begley, Jr., and Horst Buchholz. The horror gets underway in "Second Chance," a story about a man (Begley, Jr.) who restores a vintage automobile only to find that this his prized vehicle has the power to transport him back in time. The chills keep on coming when the vampire-fearing mistress of an old mansion (Anjanette Comer) falls prey to a sinister scheme involving her husband (Macnee) and a benevolent family friend (Bucholtz) with a dark secret, and a grieving mother (Joan Hackett) is both terrified and overjoyed to be reunited with her presumed-dead son (Lee. H. Montgomery) in "Bobby."
