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!

 by

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 might be a little slow on the draw tonight, I just had to step outside and when I saw that it was snowing again, I took the time to put the windshield cover back on the car.

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.

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!"

Since it is Winter Weather season in much of the continent, a reminder to all.

Yes, you can die.

We had our first winter fatality early this morning.

Guy got stuck coming home from the bar last night. Spun the tires until one blew.

Being at the bar, he was dressed lightly.

Wind chills about -25f and blizzard conditions.

Meantime, snow packed into the engine compartment and knocked the belt off.

No belt means no water pump which means no heater.

He took off walking because he was less than 1/4 mile from home.

Didn't make it half way, evidently got lost in the blowing snow.

Border Patrol with dogs found him about 11:30 this morning.

Yeah, I knew the guy for 30 years.

Watched the search from my window at work.

Today sucked.

About 25 years ago A close family friend that we called uncle had a heart attack and died while shoveling snow. His wife came home and found him slumped over the shovel.
Kyle Mikeyyy 2 months ago
Yeah.

They don't know if it was the cold or his heart. Snow was deep, and he was late 60s and in poor health.

Something always seems to get you, eventually.

Until then, do your thing.

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!

So Mrs. G: If memory serves me correctly, I read on the blog (a while back) that you and hubby had survived the ineluctable pleasure of a bath remodel. I hope you didn’t have to replace one of these bad boys along the way:
At least I can say there’s consolation in the difference a day can sometimes make:
Glad hubby lost the sling! Hope I don’t find one. This old house! I think it will stop giving me chores about the time my memorial service starts 🫥

And then there was the contractor my folks dealt with when they infiltrated enemy terri... I mean, when Dad's job transferred him to Columbus, and they asked if they could get a basement in the house being built and were told "sure"... but found out when they sold it that no changes had otherwise been made to the structure, so they needed to have it reinforced...
