"Devil's Alphabet" is the second segment of the twenty-second episode from the first season (1985-1986) of the television series The New Twilight Zone.

Synopsis

In Victorian England, a group of young Cambridge students form a group called "The Devil's Alphabet." Upon their graduation, they make an oath to meet at the same time every year; jokingly adding, even if they are dead. Twenty years later, when one member commits suicide, the surviving members discover that they are indeed bound by their oath.

The remaining members die, either by violent accident or suicide, until the final surviving member returns to the meeting place and asks the deceased members present to agree to end the pact, which releases their spirits.

Note

It was based on a short story "The Everlasting Club" by Arthur Gray, under the pseudonym Ingulphus. The story was first published in The Cambridge Review (October 27, 1910)
