I wasnt expecting that, after a bit of a weak start to this episode it rapidly becomes a nice peice of solid horror flash fiction with a few genuine scares.

Again, not amazing, but well worth a watch.

Yes I enjoyed this one. Was the kid actor genuinely disabled? Very freaky. He looked like Randy Quaid.

Seems he wasnt, IMDB have him listed in a number of films and tv and he did VO for pokemon cartoon.

On another note, they did use the word "retarded" rather liberally in this episode.

Guess that was OK in the 80s

Oh right. I find myself not paying as much attention to these new ones. Think they're all done on the horror channel now. Quite glad in a way, there's a lot of dross to get through to see a decent one.
