It wasn't Monsters ... What was it??' An anthology tv sci-fi/horror episode with a man "ill," maybe restrained, in a bed at a rustic home acting feral while his family and a visiting doctor hover about him, concerned. The doc asks how he's doing. The wife seems concerned about his illness; but the audience is freaked that he's going to jump out of bed and attack someone. Then there's a twist... Probably.... I had to leave & never learned what happened. Anyone know the show/episode??!! It's bugged me off & on for years!! Thx.

  • There were several anthology series like that in the eighties and nineties. Tales from the Crypt? The Outer Limits? – Mr Lister Dec 15 '13 at 13:33

  • What about Tales from the Dark Side? That show used the scare the bejeebers out of me! – 22nd Century Fza Dec 18 '13 at 18:17

Night Gallery had a scene very much like that in 1972's production of The Caterpillar.
A man plots to kill the older husband of a young, beautiful woman at a remote outpost in British-occupied Borneo. The plan misfires, and he finds himself is bound to a bed, half insane from the pain of the earwig burrowing through his brain, tended by the couple. And, yes, there is a horrifying & memorable twist at the end.
