family woke up and found that their house seemed to be surrounded by
some sort of concrete/metal container? It gave me the creeps. They
spent the whole episode trying to get out of the doors and windows,
using amongst other things an axe and trying to drive the family car
through the garage door to break out.
I remember watching loads of TZ and OL when i was young on late night
UK tv, but the 2 that stick in my mind as being the most scary was this
one and the monster on the aeroplane wing one. I recall it was also
getting hotter and hotter and they started to lose strength and the use
of their limbs. Towards the end they found a sticky mess coming down
the chimney into the house, the last very weird scene is a young girl
in strange (futuristic?) clothing lifted the house out of a heating
duct and the viewers realised that it was her dolls house that her
older brother had hidden away for a joke. The sticky mess was a candy
bar that had fallen in with the house and melted over it. We then saw
that the family inside were actually dolls and that their loss of limb
movement was because they were melting!
It left me pretty shaken as child and ive always remebered it. Would
this sort of scenario be too simple a solution to the LOST plot?
