Masterson, Coffey, and Lloyd - a great cast!
5 June 2008 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This is the only "Amazing Stories" I remember seeing. I was probably too young to see them when they actually aired and caught this episode several times in later years as a Halloween week re-run.

I do remember being scared by this episode and certain scenes (like the one involving the main character's bedroom window) I will never forget.

My favorite this about this entire episode, however, is the cast and the acting. Christopher Lloyd really lets it all hang out - he's not afraid to go big with his characters. And it was nice seeing Scott Coffey and Mary Stuart Masterson together. One year after this aired, they were in "Some Kind of Wonderful" together where Ray (Coffey) was used by Watts (Masterson) to make another guy (Eric Stoltz) jealous.

Watts: "Just sit here and act like you like me." Ray: "That will be absolutely no problem."
