Karen Black: Camp At Its Best, Hysterical Unintentional Humor
14 August 2010 | by perryvalentinoSee all my reviews

Karen Black plays Barbara Sanders, a widow who is about to be remarried. All of a sudden, she is being follow, receives phone calls at work and at home from a stastic voice, who states he is her husband and she will die soon. First of all, it is funny to see Karen Black with her big hair and heavy mascara in general, which may have been the style of the early seventies. What is really hilarious is to see Karen Black over act with her screaming every time the phone rings? The show is really more campy than scary, which was the original intention. Is Barbara Sanders really receiving calls from her deceased husband, being victimized by someone else, or imagining these things? You will have to find out on your own through a collector's copy, unless fans write to a DVD company to have these rare special stories placed on DVD. After watching this episode, I have become a real Karen Black fan. Hee, Hee, I dedicate this episode to Ms. Karen Black.
