Storyline

A driver picks up a hitch-hiker, perhaps not the wisest thing to do when the radio is full of the news of serial murderer the 'Will-o-the-Wisp' killer and the description given of him fits that of the hitcher. Furthermore the passenger seems quite obsessed with the killer to the driver's discomfort. He even knows how many victims there have been. Or does he? Written by don @ minifie-1

If you don't work it out in thirty seconds, there's something wrong.

Will'o'the'wisp is at large, a serial killer in the deep South taking out his victims in grizzly fashion. One day a young driver picks up a hitchhiker heading for Los Angeles. The driver soon realises he's made a mistake picking him up, he's picked up a real nutter, and when a news announcement describes the hitchhiker to the tee, the driver begins to get a little nervous.

It is a slightly better episode then the recent batch of disasters, but it's still a little below par. The story is a bit more imaginative, more interesting, intelligent, with a bit more suspense, the trouble is the production values once again seem a little on the cheap side, and the acting is a bit off once again. It is a little bit overly telegraphed too.

I am surprised at the rather high rating this had.

4/10
