NIce Plot Twists
3 July 2013 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

An older man arrives in a small town. He begins by driving out to view some dilapidated property. A smile settles on his face and he heads back to town. Cut to a less-than-attractive real estate office with an agent that fits right in. When our hero asks about buying the property, there is a pregnant pause. It seems the old woman who lives there has a huge asking price for the property, and the idea of his going out there seems fruitless. When he visits the owner, she tells him that unless he comes up with the outrageous price, she is not interested. Soon she tells a tale of a son who obviously went bad, got himself into big trouble, and was killed inside the house. The conclusion is very satisfying and quite "Hitchcockian." This episode keeps us engaged all the way through, the acting is quite good, and it makes good use of the format.
