From a Misty Mountaintop Comes- "The Crawling Eye"- Tonight!

Posted on by

Tonight on MeTV- we’re moving on up- to a mountain peak surrounded by a mysterious mist that conceals a deadly menace to mankind that ends the life of any mountaineer that climbs into it- and becomes a threat as it moves downwards towards a populated town! You won’t be able to take your eyes off “The Crawling Eye”!

There is concern around the Swiss mountain Trollenberg, where many of the climbers who came to scale its heights recently met with a tragic death. Aboard a train, we meet two sisters, Anne and Sarah Pilgrim, sharing a train compartment with Alan Brooks, a United Nations operative. As the train passes the Trollenberg, Anne suddenly faints- and, when revived, insists that she and her sister disembark at the town by the mountain- even though they are supposed to continue on to Geneva!

Brooks, who was headed to the town anyway, arranges for the women to stay at the same hotel as he, owned and operated by the town mayor, Herr Klein. At the hotel , they meet a young man, Philip Truscott, who recognizes that the two sisters are actually a famous mind reading act- with Anne being the one with the psychic powers. Truscott seems unusually interested in what Brooks is doing in town.

We find out, when Brooks travels to an observatory high upon the mountain, where he confers with an old friend, Professor Crevett, about the strange deaths of climbers recently. They seem to be similar to another situation that both men ran into a few years ago in the Andes- where locals claimed something was living in the mist-and this appears to be a reason for concern.

While two climbers head up the mountain to a base camp cabin, the sisters do their mind-reading act for the folks at the hotel- during which, Anne suddenly seems to be channeling thoughts about the two men, and again collapses. Things get more eerie when the men cannot be reached- and Brooks and Truscott join a search party to look for them at the cabin. What they find is horrifying- and things just get worse as there are more deaths, and Anne’s visions become more frequent and controlling of her actions! Then comes the report that the misty cloud is moving down towards the village- and the townsfolk must all get to safety- if there is such a thing! The danger that lurks within the cloud is finally revealed- and may destroy the entire population of the village, as well as the visitors!

Though the title of the film itself is a spoiler, we are trying to keep from actually showing the full creatures in the fog, for the benefit of those who have never seen this film. Perhaps we can learn something from last week- when a problem with an uplink caused the last 15 minutes of the show to black out for 20 to 30% of our local affiliate stations ( due to the similarity of the effect, it was first thought to be a sunspot outage, which happens around this time of year). You saw the posts here on the blog of many people who did not know how the film ended- which means they had never seen it before, no matter how old and how many times it may have aired. We again ask if commenters would please be aware that there are viewers who haven’t seen some of our films, and not ruin whatever surprise they might enjoy-although we know that even the movie posters give a lot away.

We’ll mention the original name of this film, talk about its cast,  including “F-Troop” star Forrest Tucker and Janet Munro, promote a new beverage, and present another new song.


Many thanks to those who sent us word that they have cast their votes in the Rondo Awards! If you still care to vote, you can go to - and make your voice heard. The deadline for voting is midnight, April 25.

Join us when all eyes will be on MeTV tonight!

What a BLAST from the Past. I first saw The Crawling Eye when it was shown on The Million Dollar Movie, my first ever scary movie. I've been hooked ever since. Seemed a lot scarier the first time but that's to be expected, I was 6! Keep them coming.

Alright. I got my video uploaded and photos too. 55 minutes to go. Had a fun day at work. Lying on the floor working on a printer at a nurse station, a nurse rounds the corner and sees me lying there and almost has a heart attack. Good laughs from her fellow nurses. thought she was going to kick me for the heck of it...

We just finished watching a DVD "Three Billboards".
It was shot in Ashville, NC and Maggie Valley, NC where I was at last week.
Interestingly , a few scenes were shot in J. Arthur's restaurant in MV where Mrs. Islander and I have dined.
We now resume viewing of our local ME TV Affiliate.
