The only time someone other than the story's creator was the one actually telling the tale to the Midnight Society (it was Kiki's story, but Gary read a typed version of it for her since she had laryngitis). See more »

Sometimes a typewriter can help you write some wrongs.
Sean Hackett (played by Michael Hong) is a young man who loves to write. He thinks that his work will improve when he finds an old typewriter but it turns out that his stories become all too real. Whatever he writes starts to happen, when read, to other people in their dreams, and there's no telling whether or not they'll wake up if things don't end happily.
Nicely riffing on material not a million miles removed from a Stephen King story, Word Processor Of The Gods, this is a fun episode that mixes thrills in with many lighter moments.
Early scenes show Sean getting to dance with the girl he has a crush on (played by Nicole Lyn) and the prospect of dreams becoming reality is a tempting one, until Sean realises that he may be putting some people, like his best friend Billy (Joel Gordon), in serious danger.
David Winning does fine in the director's chair, Darren Kotania has fun with the script and the cast all seem to enjoy themselves. This is an enjoyable tale from The Midnight Society, one perfectly pitched at its core audience. And me.
