Storyline

Arachnophobic gourmet critic Justus Walters has no use for the clingy librarian who lives upstairs, until he discovers a tenacious spider in his kitchen sink and needs help to get rid of it/ A man is awoken during the night by the cries of his son, who wants a glass of water--but the son is somewhat different from other children/ A man who is lost in the woods is invited to the home of a quack doctor/ A wealthy businessman is having trouble with his son, a delinquent who's constantly in trouble. He hears of a private school that specializes in "problem" children, and pays it a visit to determine if it's the kind of place that will straighten out his son. Written by page8701

Creepy episode with a shock ending
23 July 2007 | by (Bernardsville, NJ) – See all my reviews

"Marmalade Wine" a two person teleplay introduces us to a weary hiker caught in a rainstorm and a friendly country doctor who offers the young man refuge in the storm, only to have a truly grisly ulterior motive. The sets are really threadbare, (Not sure if that was the intention or not) but the acting is good. The doctor is very creepy and really adds to the suspense here. The ending is a stomach churning revelation which is great. When you put yourself in theyoung man's shoes, you almost feel faint.

If you've seen the Twilight Zone episode entitled "The Howling Man" you'll see a few similarities. A man who with an evil secret figure in both stories. A fun and shocking episode.
