Too morose for kids

Kids love these twilight zones on road trips, but this one was too morose & dark: It lingers on the topic of grandmom’s death, and it manipulated the mind of a young child in a dark way. Not for kids, but otherwise a good TZ story for adults to enjoy.

Hal Sparks is terrible.

If you remember the TV version, get ready for a big letdown. They'd have done better if they lifted the audio straight from that version. Hal Sparks sucks the life out of the script. He's totally unbelievable as a father begging for the life of his son.

Creepy. But good creepy.

Yeah, yeah. Little boy talking to his dead granny on the phone, I thought at first. Then it started to get creepy... Good voice actors. The little kid didn't even have that hated "obnoxious child actor" voice. At least not too much... A good episode.
