Storyline

Hyder Simpson and his wife Rachel have been married for 50 years. They are simple country folk who live in a small cabin in the mountains. One evening after dinner, Hyder and his dog go off raccoon hunting. When the dog jumps into a fast moving stream Hyder jumps him to rescue him. He wakes up the next morning having apparently spent the night in the woods. When he gets home however, he and his dog are invisible to everyone around them, Rachel is dressed in black and it's apparent that he's died. Thus begins Hyder's journey, one that presents him with choices. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[opening narration]
Narrator: An old man and a hound dog named Rip, off for an evening's pleasure in quest of raccoon. Usually, these evenings end with one tired old man, one battle-scarred hound dog, and one or more extremely dead raccoons, but as you may suspect, that will not be the case tonight. These hunters won't be coming home from the hill. They're headed for the backwoods - of The Twilight Zone.

Is Heaven What We Would Like It To Be?
2 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This old hashed out clichéd kind of plot just does nothing for me. Obviously, the heaven described here is just a convenient one that fits what we want to do with our time in the afterlife. This guy spends his life hunting coons with his dog and that's pretty much all there is. I know it's a cute story and people will like it, but it is so dull that it makes no difference. What is missing is a sense of loss and a reclamation of the soul. It has no spirit to speak of and so it dies on the vine. Even the scene where he comes back and no one can see or hear him just seems hackneyed. Arthur Hunnicut was made to play this character and he did about four hundred times. I'm sorry. It's just not all that imaginative.
