Great start to the second series
10 September 2005 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

'Only A Scream Away' kicks off Thriller's second series in impressive style. Powerful acting performances from Gary Collins and Hayley Mills make this an unsettling must see which deals very effectively with the theme of obsessive nostalgia for one's childhood.

Robert and Samantha Miller are newlyweds whose wedding is slightly marred by a sinister red paint bomb attack which splatters the bride's dress. Upon their return they are perplexed to receive a single white glove as a wedding gift. Later on that week Samantha discovers the other glove in the pair while sorting through a old chest of childhood toys.

Cue the arrive of Howard Heston, a friendly but intense American, who bears an unhealthy interest in Samantha and her past. This coincides with a series of unfortunate accidents involving Samantha's Aunt Liz and her husband. Just what role has Heston to play - in Samantha's past and present? 'Only A Scream Away' is a strong and gripping mystery - watch out for Collins in two later installments of Thriller.
