  • A boy has recurring nightmares where he sees a serial killer committing murders but can't stop him.

    Great episode also features the hot babe from Sunset Beach Sarah Buxton. Overall this was well written, lots of suspense and ending was unusual.

    An aspiring football star named John keeps having recurring nightmares of "The Chopper" a serial killer terrozing Springwood. The nightmares are slowly driving him nuts but his girfriend (Buxton)thinks there's a lot more to it.

    We don't find out who the killer is till the second half when the scene shifts to the girlfriend having nightmares.

    They do drop a couple of hints about the killer but still it's not made quite clear until the last shot so for that this episodes scores a lot. The dream scenes were done well too. It had a better payoff than other episodes. As mentioned Sarah is in this and she's great (more than a beautiful face).moreless

    • "I Just Called to Say I Love You"

      John is rehearsing a phone call to his girlfriend, and he ad-libs, "I just called to say I love you... Now, I'm Stevie Wonder." The song by Wonder was released on the soundtrack of the film "The Woman in Red," and it was number one on the Billboard charts for three weeks in 1984.

    • The Shining

      John has a nightmare that a serial killer named The Springwood Chopper is loose in his house. As he tries to hide in his bedroom, The Chopper drives an axe through the door and shouts, "It's time to take your medicine!" This is a riff on the 1980 film (and Stephen King novel) "The Shining."
