A stupid premise...and a lot of familiar story elements.
9 February 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I don't understand. According to IMDb this episode was made for radio and then remade twice--once for the radio and once for the television versions of "Suspense". And, what I don't understand is why? This wasn't a very good episode, as it's full of overly familiar story elements as well as has a very dumb plot. After all, it's basically inspired by GASLIGHT and, in particular, SORRY WRONG NUMBER.

The show involves a nervous wife with a heart condition. She swears she's seen someone lurking on the property but instead of believing her, the husband calls the doctor and acts as if she's losing her mind. This is a HUGE giveaway that the husband is up to no good and nothing about what follows comes as any surprise. Later, when a man later invades the house and tells her he's going to murder her husband the wife pretty much does nothing but do what he says. Again, no surprises here.
