There was an Outer Limits, Twilight Zone, or Night Gallery episode (definitely in color) where a town didn't allow music or singing because they believed it would bring the monsters out.

The newcomer to the town asked if anyone had ever seen the monster. To which they all responded "no because we don't allow singing". "Maybe you haven't seen them because they don't exist". Of course he gets everyone to join in a song which promptly gets everyone killed as the monsters descend upon them.

I can't remember the name of this episode or even the series. Does this ring a bell with anybody?


Night Visions, an episode titled Harmony.

  • Welcome to the site. I didn't downvote you, but we generally prefer answers to be backed up with some sort of facts. In cases like this, examples of how the series matches up with the details mentioned in the original question would really help. – phantom42 Jan 27 '13 at 5:30
  • I think story identification doesn't need "facts" so much, but linking to the episode on Wikipedia might be warranted. – John O Jan 27 '13 at 6:23
  • That's the one exactly! Thanks a million. – Michael Brown Jan 27 '13 at 7:30
  • @JohnO A good Story-ID answer will provide the title, and a description of what elements in the story match the question's description. – user1027 Jan 27 '13 at 21:59
  • @Keen There's an implicit "this story matches everything the question describes exactly" in a case like this. I edited it to include a link that does just that... but it felt wrong to add more since I'm unfamiliar with this episode. – John O Jan 27 '13 at 22:13
