Horrible episode
30 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Relax, don't get excited, it's just a play on words, as 2 of the stars of this "sunday special" come from somewhat legendary horror films. Kimberly Beck and Kyle Richards, who horror fans should know from both Friday the 13th and Halloween films, respectively, both play major parts in this episode, and other than the films just mentioned, I haven't really seem them much since. Some of the faces include Red Buttons, Billy Barty, Mary Ann Mobley, Juliet Mills, and a scary looking Regis Philbin as a young man. Neither story was that exciting or memorable, especially the one about a silly plot to kidnap Tattoo and have Roarke pay ransom, although I'm sure this special episode was meant to be funny, even though it really wasn't. The other story has 2 kids looking to choose their "new" parents to adopt them, as I think the original parents were killed. It's a cute little segment, but it seems like I've seen the same tired plot in earlier episodes. This episode also has the guests arriving by hot air balloon rather than the plane, although I like the plane arrival better, but not sure why. I must say this episode was slightly pedestrian, and even though it wasn't too bad, I'd have a hard time recommending it.
