Tonight’s episode of Friday the 13th: The Series is considered by many to be one of the best episodes of the series.
In this episode, the antique is a gold compact. It causes men to fall in love with whoever owns it. Unfortunately, the men usually become so obsessive that the owner of the compact has no choice but to kill them. Hey, it happens.
In Vanity’s Mirror, the compact has fallen into the hands of an awkward teenager named Helen, who is poignantly played by Ingrid Veninger. As is often the case with the best horror stories, Helen is as much a victim as a villain.
This episode originally aired on March 5th, 1988.
