identify old horror tv show similar to twilight zone
But I do remember the story of one of the episodes.
A new neighbour comes to town. He is misterious and scary. A girl and other characters meet him. And the characters start disappearing. It turns out that the guy is eating their hearts or something. And then I believe they tried to kill the guy. But when they pierced his heart, they realised he won't die because every time he eats a human he gets his heart. So he had several hearts in his body.
It had so much impact on me as a kid and yet I can't remember the name of the show.
I would be grateful if someone knows the details of it!
I really gave all the details I knew about it and hope it's possible to find it haha. Thanks
They revived it during the 90s. The first episode, The Sandkings, scared the hell out of me when I was pretty young. Think that's based on an old George R.R. Martin short story.
but yeah, sounds like Outer Limits. Reminds me of the Alyssa Milano episode where having sex with her kills you.

(I clicked, it's genuine.)
There are a perhaps surprisingly high number of SF/horror anthologies from the 80s and 90s. The one that leapt to mind for me was ABC's The Darkroom, which scared the crap out of me in 1980 or 81, but while that has a credit sequence involving a camera moving through an empty house, I didn't see an elevator there. (The eps are on YouTube.) It was also an hour and had two stories per episode, so almost certainly not it.
Sorry for sending that link, but its not a malicious link as far as I know, it's just an image from google. And yeah I made the account just to ask this question as it's the only website i found where people ask these type of questions and get decent answers.

Maybe if the elevator is from a specific episode, but it isn't part of the opening credits. That curiosity shoppe was only two stories tall, IIRC.
