  • A couple hiking through,a somewhat, rugged terrain find a well aged couple who are at the beginning of the Anniversary celebration, with ulterior intentions.

    9.0
    A well written horror story. Elinor is the ying to Henry's yang, where as he's cautious of who they allow in the house, Elinor's is more the hospitable one. With their attitudes, you can see why Sybil was more than willing to make herself at home instead of staying for the night and trying to find her way back home the next day, like a normal person would do. One thing is for certain and two things are for sure, always be aware of your surrounding when you are with people you're not that familiar with, especially if you are in their territory where no one can find you. Also, if a person is putting raw vegetables in a hot tub with you in it, you are in situation where it's lights out, party's over, cake's on the gridle, and you're already greased.moreless
  • A hiking girl gets more than she bargained for when she accepts an invitiation to stay for dinner by a kindly farm couple.

    A great, subtler entry in the "backwoods family that aren't what they seem" genre. Although Mario Roccuzzo is a little too shifty as the patriarch, Alice Ghostley gives a great performance as the kindly mom type who isn't quite right in the head- you really can't believe what's coming at the end, even if you figure it out before you get there, she seems like such a nice lady, if a bit kooky. Some funny, over-the-top touches, like the giant wooden spoon hanging in the couple's hot tub room. Sick and twisted, in the best way. The last line, delivered by Alice like she's the mother on the Waltons, is perfect.moreless
