"A Thing About Machines" is an episode of the The Twilight Zone.
From the CBS Video Library cover:
"This is Mr. Bartlett Finchley, age forty-eight, a practicing sophisticate who writes very special and very precious things for gourmet magazines and the like. he's a bachelor and a recluse, with few friends, only devotees and adherents to the cause of tart sophistry. He has no interests, save whatever current annoyances he can put his mind to. He has no purpose for his life, except for the formation of day-to-day opportunities to vent his wrath on mechanical contrivances of a age he abhors. In short, Mr. Bartlett Finichley is a malcontent, born ethier too early or too late in the century, and in just a moment, will enter a realm where muscles and the will to fight back are not just limited to human beings. Next stop for Mr. Bartlett Finichley: the Twilight Zone."
"Yes, it could just be. It could just be that Mr. Bartlett Finchley succumbed from a heart attack and a set of delusions. It could just be that he was tormented by an imagination as sharp as his wit and as pointed as his dislikes. But as perceived by those attending, this is one explanation that has left the premises with the deceased. Look for it filed under 'M' for Machines - in The Twilight Zone."
