"Four O’Clock" is an episode of the
American televisionanthology series "The Twilight Zone".
Oliver Crangle is a fanatic who maintains records of people he deems evil, calling and writing their employers to remind them of the evil acts in question and to demand their immediate firing. Unsatisfied with the results he gets with anonymous threats, he searches for a more effective way to eliminate all evil from the world.
His acts attract the attention of the government and Agent Hall is sent to investigate. Crangle tells him that he has finally devised a plan to shrink every "evil" person down to two feet tall at four o’clock that afternoon through sheer force of will. Hall dismisses him as a crank and leaves.
When four o'clock rolls around, Crangle is dismayed to find that he himself has been shrunk to two feet tall.
