Disturbing.
2 August 2006 | by TOMNELSee all my reviews

A more morbid episode of the show! This deals with a feuding couple staying with an old couple in the country. The husband of the couple leaves and the girl is with the old people alone. They treat her nice and feed her like you wouldn't believe, but they have bigger plans for her. Their anniversary dinner is coming up and she's going to be the guest of honor. Like many Darkside episodes it is unfortunately quite predictable, but I found it to have good acting and fresh directing. Not many episodes have endings quite this disturbing, but then again some have more. I recommend it!

My rating: Great episode. 21 mins. TV PG V
