This anthology series featured a number of stories of the supernatural. Unfortunately, many of the plot elements were rather routine; e.g., a girl can predict death through Dreams, a department store mannequin comes to life (> Pygmalion), a man is seen in the crowd just before several disasters, a woman programs a computer to kill her husband.
