Not at all the sort of movie I'd watch...but I liked it!
18 March 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Baffled!" is a British-made TV pilot for a series that never materialized....something very common as most pilots never become regular TV shows.

When the film begins, Tom Kovack (Leonard Nimoy) is racing in an auto race and things seem to be just fine. Suddenly, however, without warning Tom begins seeing visions of some manor home...and loses control and wrecks. He's okay but very shaken by these odd images that come and go. He finds a pretty psychic investigator and the pair head to the UK because that seemed to be where the visions were leading him. Miraculously, they easily find this same home...a B&B filled with dodgy characters. Tom begins seeing violent images and thinks someone's life is in danger...but often the images turn out to be dead ends or misleading. Can the pair manage to solve some crime before it occurs?

This film worked because of the writing. Again and again, false trails and confounds occur and the show REALLY keeps you guessing. It's certainly odd and some folks who dislike shows about the occult and psychic stuff (like me) might dislike it (but I didn't)! Well worth your time.
