    Wonderfully creepy, with the atmosphere of dread and suspense well-sustained throughout. This was one of the first TZs I ever saw (if memory serves), and it's still one of my favorites. The phone call back to her parents was particularly well-done. We also get to see in a cameo the guy who played Anthony Perkins' psychiatrist in Fear Strikes Out. The only knock is the rather hammy VO's, which I thought could've been dispensed with.
