Scared the daylights out of me!
30 September 2013 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

The writer who wrote this episode was definitely thinking outside the box. To have a self-portrait that moves, changes expression and talk would frighten anyone, especially kids, and is an unusual plot element for this "Too Close For Comfort" series.

I first saw this episode when I was around six years-old. When I first saw Henry's image on the portrait change, that creepy scene left me scarred for most of my childhood. I would get creep-ed out from self-portraits from that time on and would have nightmares containing moving portraits. I would not watch the rest of this episode and would avoid it every time it airs. Finally, a few years later, I found the guts to watch the episode in its entirety and thought that the picture was actually sort of funny, talking to Henry.

Now, as I watched it as an adult, the episode is pretty tamed. I actually re-watched a few times just for kicks. However, even today, I still get an eerie feeling from time to time when I see a self-portrait of someone.

Grade B+
