Sweet But Overly Maudlin
3 July 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Colleen Dewhurst plays an elderly writer of children's books. She is retiring and moving to Arizona. Before she leaves, a lady comes to visit to get a book autographed. She says he is quite ill, so the lady decides to visit him at home. She reads to him but it is obvious that he is very ill. When she returns to her old house (which she has up for sale), unseen kids begin to prank her. But there is a strange twist. I guess it was just a bit too sappy for my taste but typical of the Twiliight Zone canon.
