Storyline

Herbie is a very special boy. He has the ability to predict the near future. During the taping of a show where he advises the public of his predictions, he repeatedly insists he must go home. The studio heads talk him out of leaving, but Herbie remains uneasy. He tells his audience that tomorrow is going to be the beginning of a new and different world. Human beings are going to live as they were meant to live. Has he told the truth, or is he sparing mankind from the awful reality? Written by Christine Y Andrews

Predictions & Surprises
11 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

'The Boy Who Predicted Earthquakes' - Clint Howard plays Herbie Bittman, a young boy who can predict future events, so long as there is a future to predict... Highly effective story with a knockout ending.

'Miss Lovecraft Sent Me' - Foolish waste of time, and not funny either.

'The Hand Of Borgus Weems' - A man believes that his hand is no longer his own, and will go to extreme lengths to get rid of it... Unoriginal but interesting tale has a good cast(like Ray Milland) at least.

'Phantom Of What Opera?' - Leslie Nielsen plays the phantom carrying off his reluctant love who has a secret herself... Hilarious segment may be the only one of its kind to work, but Nielsen's heavy mask breathing and surprise reveal make it a treat.
