Mrs. Ardoy is the caretaker of a creepy old house set in the heart of the forest, who takes in a stranded young couple with car trouble. Once tucked in for the night, the pair begin to experience mutual dreams about a pack of werewolves roaming the region by night. The dreams, of course, are not entirely what they seem... and for that matter, neither is their hostess. Written by Ørnås

Did You Know?


When first shown in the UK large areas of the country missed the last few minutes of this episode due to a massive electrical blackout. On one of the following days the resolution was actually printed in national newspapers, so great was the public outcry, but many people felt that such a resolution wasn't good enough and the broadcaster received an unprecedented number of complaints. In the end the episode was repeated the following week, ensuring the happiness of the viewing public. See more »


The woodcutter uses the word 'vulpine' to describe a wolf-like creature. The correct term is 'lupine'. 'Vulpine' relates to foxes. See more »

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh, a bit of a let down. The characters are very strong but there isn't anything in the storyline. It takes a while before anything happens and when it happens it isn't shown, it starts of pretty well with the child in the beginning but then the only thing they do is standing there, and standing and... The couple who visited the house, well, nothing really happens with them too. Oh yes, the man encounters something in the woods but it isn't shown. But things go wrong when the woman stares through a window and sees the face of the werewolf, hello, is this 1980? The make up for the werewolf is laughable. And the werewolf takes a human form in daylight, but what a mistake. At the end the werewolf becomes one in...daylight. If only those children could have done something, as suggested by the title it would have been better.
