Suspenseful 3 character entry
20 May 2009 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

It is a dark and stormy night; wife (Nancy Kelly, sister of Jack) returns home to an empty house, anxiously awaits the return of her absent husband (David McLean), hoping he can make it back through the terrible storm. Hearing noises in the cellar, she discovers the corpse of a young woman in her trunk, and begins to fear for her life. Solid crime entry with only one other character, a strange cab driver (James Griffith, previously seen in "Parasite Mansion") who makes unsuccessful advances towards the wife before dropping her off at her home. Nancy Kelly played the mother of "The Bad Seed"(1956), while the craggy David McLean appeared in 1977's "Kingdom of the Spiders," perhaps best known as the Marlboro Man in those TV commercials. The actress who plays the murder victim in the trunk appears unbilled but there are no other characters present,so this is definitely NOT a credit for David Janssen, who was a fairly well-known TV presence even before his starring turn on THE FUGITIVE.
