31 TV Shows for 31 Days of Halloween Season: Day 9

Series: The Alfred Hitchcock Hour

Episode: “The Jar”, in which a good ol’ boy buys a jar containing a mysterious object at a carny show and become a local celeb when all his friends and neighbors swarm to his house to take a gander at the bizarre thing. The Alfred Hitchcock Hour usually delivered clever, twisty murder mysteries, but “The Jar” is kind of something else. Directed by Norman Lloyd (who played the weasley title character in Hitchcock’s Saboteur), its story and execution are much weirder than usual. Lloyd’s queasy blend of the farcical and the utterly grotesque make it something special and the ideal hour for Halloween season.
