Terror in tiny town
20 March 2010 | by ctomvelu1See all my reviews

Several cast members from Dick Van Dyke's Dr. Sloan medical mystery TV series reunited for this feature-length TV movie. Sloan's daughter and new husband have disappeared on their way to visit Sloan. Sloan and his law enforcement son head straight for where the newlyweds disappeared, a small desert town were the locals turn out to be largely uncooperative and some of them downright hostile. The plot makes little effort to disguise the bad guys' identities, so suspense is minimal. The movie goes on way too long, and would have been better as a one-hour feature. Van Dyke gets roughed up a bit but bounces right back, which I found hard to swallow considering his age.
