Singer Floyd Burney, the "Rock-a-Billy-Kid", goes deep into the back woods hoping to find his next hit record. He no sooner arrives than he hears a beautiful singing voice which draws him deeper into the woods. He eventually meets Mary Rachel who tells him the song he heard belonged to someone and that she's forbidden to tell anyone about it. When she finally reveals it to him, Floyd learns that his future is preordained. Written by

When Floyd takes off from the shack with all the instruments in it because he hears Mary Rachel's tune, the straps for the guitar and the tape recorder continuously switch positions as he runs through the woods. Sometimes the guitar strap is over the recorder strap, and other times the recorder strap is on top. See more »

Great beginning, then loses steam but story has great potential
Someone should definitely remake this into a movie or something with more explanation and a better ending. Like the person before me said, the beginning was really good and I was expecting the end to be just as creepy but it didn't really deliver. I've been watching the Twilight Zone a long time and that part in the beginning with the girl dressed in black standing in the distance was almost as scary as the first time I saw the Hitch Hiker episode when I was like 10.
Some aspects of the story that could use more detail would be a more in depth look at how the main character got to the woods, how/why the time loop occurs and more info about the mysterious girl and why she claimed she always loved the guy. How did she get stuck in the time loop?
