Trivia

The movie mentioned in the episode, "Spider's Kiss," does not exist. The title was most likely made up by King as a mini-tribute to his fellow writer and friend (and fellow contributor to TFTD), Harlan Ellison, who did write a novel titled "Spider's Kiss." See more »

This "TFTD" episode titled "Sorry, Right Number" is one that takes a twist that's a little odd and it leaves the viewer thinking about how it really happened. Deborah Harmon stars as a housewife who's husband is a horror novelist(hint: written by Stephen King)and while at home one evening with him and her two children,she has a phone conversation with one of her friends. Only all of a sudden she receives a call coming in on another line of a disturbed and upset voice. She thinks it might be from her daughter who's away at college, yet when she calls and checks in with her everything is fine. Only later you wonder was this just a sign of things to come to the episode was it a great foreshadowing technique used by King who wrote the episode. As we see when she receives the phone call again the bad news becomes a reality that involves the demise of her husband so King really used flashback to prove his point in the end. Overall nothing great, it's a little hard to follow you may have to watch it a few times for the way King foreshadows and used flashback to twist the plot.
