In Case You “Mist” It Before- Set Your Peepers on “The Crawling Eye”- Tonight!

Posted on November 26, 2022

Tonight on MeTV- appropriately, it’s time for us to follow “Black Friday” with a “Black and White Saturday”- so we’ll be heading up to a snowy mountain peak surrounded by a mysterious mist that conceals a deadly menace to mankind! Any mountaineer who dares to climb into it risks certain death- which poses a major threat when it moves downwards towards a populated town! Terror dwells inside the mist – it’s “The Crawling Eye”!

The Swiss mountain Trollenberg seems almost cursed, as many of the climbers who came to scale its heights recently have met with a tragic death. Aboard a train approaching the mountain, we meet two sisters, Anne and Sarah Pilgrim, sharing a train compartment with Alan Brooks, a United Nations operative. As the train gets nearer to the Trollenberg, Anne suddenly faints! When she revives- even though they are supposed to continue on to Geneva-she insists that she and her sister disembark at the town by the foot of the mountain!

Brooks, who was already headed to the town, arranges for the women to stay at the same hotel as he, owned and operated by the town mayor, Herr Klein- who seems very closed-mouthed about the recent demise of climbers. At his hotel , the group meets 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 also seems unusually interested in what Brooks’ business is in coming to the area.


We find out the reason when Brooks travels to an observatory high upon the mountain. There, 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 are familiar with-an event a few years ago in the Andes- where locals claimed something was living in the mist on a mountain. This may not be a coincidence, and appears to be a reason for concern.

While two climbers depart from the hotel to head up the mountain to a base camp cabin, the two sisters do their mind-reading act to entertain the folks at the hotel. In the middle of the performance, Anne suddenly seems to be channeling thoughts about the two men, and once again collapses. Things get more eerie when the men at the base camp cannot be reached- and Brooks and Truscott join a search party to look for them at the cabin.

What they find is horrifying- and the horror grows as there are more deaths, while Anne’s visions become more frequent and begin controlling her actions! Even more upsetting- the misty cloud is moving down towards the village- and the townsfolk must all get to safety- if there is even the chance of such a thing! The danger that lurks within the cloud is finally revealed- and may destroy the visitors, the entire population of the village, and even beyond!


Yes, the title of the film itself is a spoiler but, once again, we are trying to keep from actually showing the full creatures that dwell within the fog. We stress again that, every week, we hear from viewers who haven’t seen some of our films, and do not want to ruin whatever surprise they might discover-although we know that even the movie posters give a lot away, just like last week’s “Fiend Without a Face”!

We’ll reveal the original name of this film (even less of a surprise than what the monsters look like), talk about its cast, including “F-Troop” star Forrest Tucker and Janet Munro, promote a new beverage you might want to avoid, and present a song ( which,I know, a minority of our viewers would rather avoid).

“The Crawling Eye” will appear before your eyes tonight at 8 pm eastern/pacific, 7 central time. In spite of the many rumors that come and go about Twitter, lots of our fans continue to live-Tweet during the show- using the hashtag #svengoolie.

We’re sorry to report that there will NOT be an encore of last week’s MeTV movie on Chicago’s CW26 this morning, due to high school basketball- but we should be back on at our 11am timeslot next week!


With the holidays approaching almost as fast as whatever is in the mist in tonight’s movie- we want to remind you that, if you want to purchase Svengoolie items from our store (yes, I have one, all right?!)- you should probably consider ordering now- to make sure you will have the items in time- and to avoid being shut out by a sell out!

And- Sventa Claus will be making a single special appearance at the Mystic Market on December 10th- find the information here on our website under the “appearances” tab!

And tonight- you won’t want to have missed what comes out of the mist on MeTV!

I had the same problem when I tried to use the app. I now only use a browser on my phone or PC

I'm about as net savvy as a St. Bernard. To attach a photo, I succeed by downloading it to my computer, then using the picture doodleblat to add it. No idea how to do it direct from phone. Would your guidebook help? (When you buy the phone they OWE you a guidebook, even if it's only online.)

Maybe he wants to help you with your Medicare benefits, or talk to you about your car’s extended warranty.

For a small fee perhaps??
1MikeM Jack 19 months ago
Well Jack, I think Mark would say "Yes, my young apprentice" and I think a black hooded menace would say "Oh, I'm afraid the deflector shield will be quite operational when your friends arrive!"

Hello, gang.
Just a few thoughts about last week's feature. I think that it is really a pretty decent sci-fi flick. The aliens are also actually pretty decent, in terms of FX, for the time, IMO.
My one quibble is that, for aliens that were sophisticated and advanced enough to travel across space, they were pretty dumb to leave themselves vulnerable to as primitive weapon as fire. Yes, I know that you shouldn't overthink old movies like that, but it still seems pretty dum.

Yup. And while double-checking that “microbes” applied to _War of the Worlds_, I came across “zombie” viruses thawing out of Siberian permafrost. Good thing I got my omicron variant vaccine yesterday!

Thanks, Crazy K--that commercial was really funny!

I hadn't intended to post the same message twice. I had wanted to tweak it slightly. But I'd forgotten to we post 5he earlier version.
