Look for the writer of this story

I first thing I noticed was that the writer of this tale was no one else than David Grubb. You know him, don't you...OK he has never been an great author, but Charles Laughton's NIGHT OF THE HUNTER was inspired from one of his novels...And what a fantastic film. Nevertheless the book itself was not so tremendous. I won't repeat the tale of Laughton's film that every movie buff knows.

This tale here also talks of a small family living in the countryside, and whose the father offers his boy toy soldiers...A father, a boy, a farm deep in countryside. There are the only elements in common with the most known of Bob Mitchum's films as an actor. This episode is a fantastic horror story.

It deserves to be seen.
