Nice twist.
3 August 2006 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

Written by Stephen King.

Stephen King wrote this pretty mild and silly episode about a woman getting a phone call from someone warning her. It is a slow moving episode that really has very little substance. It has a pretty good twist ending, but most could've figured it out about half way through. It's not really a badly written episode. All the dialog is realistic enough and it's not corny, it just disappointed me. Why would Stephen King write such a mediocre episode like this? Can be found on VHS volume 4.

My rating: OK episode. 20 mins. TV PG
