A disappointment, considering Craven's oeuvre
12 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED has a decent premise but turns out to be one of the weaker episodes of THE NEW TWILIGHT ZONE. It concerns the Vietnam War and it was directed by Wes Craven, so it has every right to be good, and yet it's not. A combination of weak storytelling and poor production values sink this one from the outset.

The story sees a kid starting to find her family home haunted by a strange old wheelchair-bound guy. It soon transpires that this isn't a routine haunted house effort but that instead the guy hails from an alternate reality where things have turned out very different. The acting is okay here but the story feels rather diluted and ordinary at best.
