Sometimes, TV horror is the perfect medium for a particular kind of story. Perhaps a story that doesn’t rely on effects or sensationalism to affect the viewer; a tale that works in a simple, straightforward way, dealing with all too common emotions experienced by the regular teenage mind. To wit, Summer of Fear (1978) Aka Stranger in Our House, a chiller directed by the late legend Wes Craven based on the bestselling Ya novel of the same name by Lois Duncan (I Know What You Did Last Summer). It’s a breezy thrill ride that also shows Craven could successfully work in the mainstream.
Originally airing Halloween night on NBC under the Stranger title as one of their The Big Event titles, its toughest competition was ABC’s Three’s Company/Taxi/Starsky and Hutch dynamo. But no worries, if you needed a horror fix on Halloween night, this is what you were watching. »

When I first started watching Days of Our Lives as a little kid, Tom and Alice were still alive, and their presence added such a sense of warmth and love to the show.
In the years since MacDonald Carey and Frances Reid passed away. that sense of family and love has gradually faded away, which is a real shame, because that was what drew viewers to Days of Our Lives year after year.
That's why when Julie decided to tell her new-to-her grandson about the family he was born into, it was so disappointing that there wasn't a single flashback.
Julie's family stories were a welcome diversion from all the kidnappings, violence, and general meanness for the sake of meanness elsewhere in Salem. I loved hearing all the old stories again. But having some flashbacks to go along with the memories would have enriched these scenes.
First of all, since »
