Season 7: Episode 4
81d: Donald Pleasence / Fear
[ open on Jogger jogging through a path in the park. The path twists and curves under the trees, leading to a tunnel. As the Jogger enters the darkness of the tunnel, his feet stop short. Looking down, the Jogger finds his shoes stuck in the middle of a strange, gooey substance. He tries to pry his shoes loose, but it only affixes him tighter to the gooey substance. As he looks around the tunnel, the Jogger discovers, to his horror, that the interior walls are lined with the skeletal remains of joggers before him. Struggling more furiously than ever to get loose, the Jogger eventually loses his balance and falls backwards into the gooey substance, confined eternally in what he realizes is some sort of bizarre trap. ]
[ camera pans out of the tunnel to a long shot, revealing the words “Jogger Motel” written on the side of the tunnel ]
Announcer: The Jogger Motel. Joggers jog in, but they don’t jog out.
