  • Why oh why didn't they stick to the original story?

    Tom Berenger does all he can to salvage this episode of Nightmares and Dreamscapes, but unfortunately he is not left with a lot after the short story was butchered and the directing was way too distracting. For whatever reason a 'cancer' theme was introduced into this story, and it leads to very confusing sub plots and characters being introduced. At one point we see a very gruesome clue left behind by the killer in the story, but there is never any explanation as to why this happened and what relevance it has to the plot other than to be 'scary', it seems like this episode was thrown in at the last second.
