Great Story
30 November 2006 | by (Atlanta, Georgia, USA) – See all my reviews

Excellent story told on video. Presented in the true spirit of Amazing stories, that is, the story has many twists and presents true fiction just outside the bounds of reality. I enjoyed this episode a lot. The story starts out slow and believable but turns to fiction rapidly. The viewer is left thinking what will happen next. Directors did a wonderful job of staging this episode with live action characters even though the subject material is not completely believable. This episode is one of my favorites but not necessarily the best of the Amazing Stories series. I was a big fan of the series when it first came out. I was particularly attracted to the opening sequence filled with computer graphics. That graphics was groundbreaking animation for its day and holds my interest today. Spielberg and his staff are at their best in presenting this series.
