A bit claustrophobic but creepy.
2 September 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Back in 1961, CBS used "Way Out" as a lead-in to "The Twilight Zone". Either it got horrible ratings or someone at the network didn't get the weird trippy style, but it was canceled after only a little more than a dozen episodes. This is a darn shame, as the episodes I've seen (which are available for free download at archive.org) are pretty good. They are introduced in a WEIRD manner by Roald Dahl that you just have to see for yourself. Perhaps Dahl's bizarre intros were too much for 1961--they did come off as a bit psychotic (seriously), but I liked that! While there are some other actors in "I Heard You Calling Me", 90% of it is performed by Constance Ford--and all within the confines of a single hotel room. So, it is a bit claustrophobic...but still well worth your time. It begins with Ford calling her lover and discussing their running off together. However, soon after, she begins receiving strange phone calls--calls by someone that KNOWS of their affair and is going to put a stop to it. I could say a lot more about it but don't want to spoil it. My only misgivings about the episode is that while I liked the ending, it did seem a bit ridiculous when you think about it. Still, excellent acting and a great creepy factor make this well worth your time.
