  • A hitman gets hit, by toy soldiers

    This is the first in the series Nightmares & Dreamscapes and, somewhat surprisingly, is not in the anthology by that name, but from an earlier collection of short stories called "Night Shift".

    Irrespective of its origins, this is an excellent episode and a great start to the series. Adaptations of Stephen King stories have been hit and miss, but this episode is very successful. In a bold move, there is no dialogue but an actor like William Hurt manages to make this work. The specials effects are very good, the music editor did a great job and the story is extremely effective.
