[S1E1] Anne or Beast
Meanwhile, the Plantars, which consists of grandfather Hop Pop, 10-year-old Sprig, and the latter's tadpole younger sister Polly, come to town to go shopping. Hop Pop puts Polly in charge of watching the wagon over the older Sprig due to "yesterday being a bad day". An unharmed Wally runs into town raving and ranting about a creature with unusual features that supposedly was trying to eat him. The amphibian townsfolk are in an uproar over the supposed beast. As Mayor Toadstool promises that something will be done about it, Sprig decides that he will be the one to capture the creature so that he can earn Hop Pop's trust back. He bribes Polly with candy who accepts and Sprig hops away into the woods.
Sprig begins his search only to be immediately caught by the beast which is revealed to be a Thai-American human named Anne Boonchuy who has been living in the woods for a week. She rescues Sprig from a giant praying mantis and begin to learn about one another. Anne came from her world and found herself in Amphibia through unknown means. Sprig sympathizes with her and wants to help her. Meanwhile back in town, just as Mayor Toadstool is turning the townsfolk into a mob to hunt for the beast, Hop Pop learns that Sprig is missing and takes Polly into the woods to "rescue" him. Everyone catches up and ties Anne down only for the praying mantis, as well as a bigger one, to arrive and begin attacking the frogs. Sprig and Anne team up and defeat the mantis. Sprig then tells everyone that Anne is just trying to get home and that they should help her. While there is apprehension, Hop Pop agrees to take her in.
Elijah: Well ... he's complicated. Defiant, ill-mannered, and a little temperamental. See, we don't share the same father. Of course that never bothered me, but my brother resents it deeply. Never felt like he belongs. All told, he has a long history of getting himself into trouble.
While chatting, they come across the topic of their careers. The pair acknowledge that they are from the Armed Detective Agency, a renowned group of private eyes armed with supernatural powers for cases too dangerous for the likes of the police. Kunikida questions Atsushi if he had seen a white tiger roaming around the town recently, inducing a response of fear on the part of the boy. Atsushi panics, claiming that the white tiger had been following him from the past two weeks and was out for his blood. In the end, Dazai takes him to a warehouse to apparently lure out the beast.
While waiting, Dazai remains calm throughout the hour, whilst Atsushi is convinced that the tiger had arrived and was stalking the shelves of the building. Keeping a cool face, Dazai states that Atsushi had seen the tiger for two weeks and had seen the beast for the same amount of time that multiple accounts had traced back to. He had also been in the same towns as the tiger, revealing that Atsushi himself had a skill and could transform into the creature under the light of the full moon, not unlike a werewolf. When he transforms and attempts to attack him unconsciously, Dazai activates his own ability and stops him. When Atsushi wakes up, he finds himself surrounded by most of the Agency, where Dazai reveals him as the tiger and recruits him to the Agency, much to his confusion.
They show the girl, Hayley, explaining that the witches also lured her to New Orleans and grabbed her. Elijah then does this weird mind trick where he shows Haley how their family started. They were human thousands of years ago, their mother dabbling in the dark arts. They were happy back then, until their youngest brother was killed by werewolves. Desperate to protect the family, their father forced their mother to cast a spell to protect them from these beasts. But by becoming vampires, they also became hungry monsters. Klaus, after feeding for the first time, turned into a werewolf. Werewolves are cursed humans, and the curse activates when you take a life. So naturally, when Klaus killed for the first time, he transformed.

Updated on Jan. 14, 2022 by Tanner Fox: Though it was canceled nearly fifty years ago, the original version of The Twilight Zone laid the groundwork for horror television and inspired more than a few horror cinema tropes. While various spin-offs and reboots have been attempted, none have come close to usurping the original Rod Serling series.
Red herrings regarding the staff fuel the bizarre mystery of this vast setting as a woman seeks a gold thimble. Besides the unsettling exploration of an unknown floor, she becomes surrounded by mannequins. These frozen imitations of humanity are innately scary, but the supernatural revelation of the story is equally horrifying too.
This is a familiar story and killer dolls, like the modern-day horror staples Anabelle and Chucky, can be found in many movies and TV shows. Much like the mannequins, they are unnerving because of their likeness to a human face. Furthermore, ventriloquist dummies are larger than most dolls and designed to emulate sentience in any act.
Regarded as one of the best episodes of The Twilight Zone according to IMDb, "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" plays on the common phobia of air travel. In the episode, a man with an intense fear of flying sees a yeti-like monster walking on the wing of the plane in which he's sitting. He can't convince any of the passengers of what he's seeing, so he eventually takes matters into his own hands, throwing open the emergency exit and attempting to shoot the beast.
When the unholy hour tolls and a witch must attend her nocturnal observances without alerting the attention of those who deem her sorcery wicked, in the places where mortal men fear to tread, she must employ one of the powers used by the cunning folk to go where they wish without their bodies. To achieve spirit flight, she must apply her magical unguent, or request the assistance of a sister witch to do it in her stead, anointing the sensitive parts of her face, as the lips, the forehead, the eyelids and the bridge of the nose, to ignite her magic. By exciting the depths of her nether regions with an artificial phallus and drawing forth her carnal power, a witch may channel the peak of her lust to send an embodiment of her consciousness to the Sabbath, to participate in the rites of her coven in secret, returning safely to her flesh without traveling the distance in between and arousing suspicion.
An earth-dwelling beast has little use should its mistress need a servant who can master the skies. Thus, to change a familiar and grant him wings, scatter enchanted dust, as those used in metamorphoses of the flesh, over his skin and use these words to liberate him from his current body.
The head of any beast may be used as a representation of the one that is sought. The eyes of the carcass must be gouged from their sockets and placed in a brazier with herbs, then ignited with witchblood. The rhyme below is spoken. Once the blood-born flames subside, an image of the lost witch will appear as visions in smoke. 041b061a72
