This episode comes in the middle of a run of shows that didn't feel as though they were of the highest quality that this series could produce. I have no drama with the storyline of a man returning from Africa, where his company heads have been threatened with a curse from local tribesmen who do not want their dam project to proceed. It's just that it feels so formula-driven and predictable that the end comes and there are no surprises. You know - "don't burn your wife's talismen objects, they are to protect you!", "don't leave your tiger's tooth on the bar, it can't protect you there", "don't get in the cab, the driver will drop dead", "don't talk to the homeless dude, he isn't going to be able to help". And most particularly, "you can hear a roar from your bedroom? Don't open the freaking door!!"
I guess coming up with a twist in this situation is pretty tough. Some lesser people may suggest that finding a tiger in your bedroom IS the twist, but in The Twilight Zone it's more the normal than a twist.
Rating: Superstition abounds. 2.5/5
