Encounter with the Unknown available in DVD
This film is another amateurish, low-rent pseudo-documentary (of the kind prevalent in the mid-1970s) which marked the unfortunate nadir of Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling's career. Serling offers intermittent narration to a trio of allegedly true supernatural tales, all of which are purported to be based on actual paranormal case studies by Dr. Jonathan Rankin. The first tale concerns a group of youths who fall victim to a chilling graveyard prophecy; the second features a monster lurking within a pit in a farmer's field; and the third describes a mysterious rendezvous between man and ghost on a lonely bridge. The poorly-shot, post-dubbed segments are apparently padded with footage from another film.
