Trivia

'Nicholas Campbell' appeared as the Hitchhiker in the original 1983 version of this episode. In syndication his scenes were re-shot with Page Fletcher in the role of The Hitchhiker so as to create consistency with the rest of the episodes in the series. However, this often creates inconsistencies in this episode, because it is obvious that scenes with Fletcher were shot at a different time than scenes with his co-stars. See more »

A really tense and trashy episode
25 December 2010 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Married, but sleazy and philandering music company advertising executive Bob Ames (a perfectly smarmy portrayal by August Schellenberg) fancies himself as quite the ladies' man. Bob initially can't believe his good luck when he discovers the lovely Cathy Marks (a nicely sexy and sultry performance by delectable blonde bombshell Pamela Bowman) taking refuge from a fierce thunderstorm in his remote hunting cabin in the woods. However, Bob soon suspects that the mysterious Cathy might be a deadly escapee from a local institution for criminally insane women. Director Ivan Nagy relates the simple, but absorbing premise at a steady pace, milks a good deal of suspense from the spooky situation, and stages the thrilling conclusion with both principal characters stalking in each in the forest with genuine skill and verve. The capable leads do a sound job of playing off each other. The nasty surprise ending packs a pretty mean punch. Best off all, the gorgeous Bowman displays a lot of her incredibly tasty voluptuous body, with a sizzling soft-core fireside sex scene set to lurid grinding music rating as the definitely steamy highlight. Francois Protat's crisp cinematography makes neat use of shadowy lighting and an agile prowling Steadicam. Paul Hoffert's shuddery score hits the spine-tingling spot. Fans of this show will certainly enjoy this up to speed episode.
