The Twilight Zone/Episode of the twilight zone


As a child in the 60s I saw an episode that scared me like no other. I can't find any info on it and haven't seen it since.  I remember a neighborhood was taken from earth into space during the night.  I remember the people being scared to go past a certain point on the road out of the neighborhood  and  they were visited by an alien maybe.  Anyway  I remember they got this white matter on their skin and anyone who touched them got it too.  I remember at the end they all joined hands and got the disease.  Am I crazy or was there an episode like that one?

This sounds like 'Feasibility Study' from season 3 of the Outer Limits (1997).  The same episode also existed in the original Outer Limits series (1963).

Season 1, Episode 29

Season 3, Episode 17

Hope this helps.
