The Alfred Hitchcock Hour - Water's Edge


"Water's Edge" was originally broadcast on 19/Oct/1964 as part of the third season of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour.


Rusty Connors is a con man who has just been released from prison. He looks up the wife of his dead former cellmate Mike Krause, who was a robber and murderer. Before he was imprisoned, Krause stole a large amount of money and killed his partner. The money and the body, however, never turned up. Connors talks to Krause's wife Helen and hopes she knows where the money is. She, however, has no clue. Eventually, they figure out that the money is stored in an abandoned boathouse infested with rats. In the boathouse, they find the money and the dead and half-eaten body of Krause's partner. When Connors sees the money, he is overcome with greed and tries to murder Helen. She manages to knock him out. When he wakes up, he finds himself bound and gagged and taunted by Helen. She gets up to leave with the money, but is tripped by Connors and is impaled on a hook. As she dies, the scent of her blood attracts the rats. The bound Connors is helpless with horror as the rats approach to eat him. (TV.com)
