Truly imaginative and entertaining, riveting
11 May 2006 | by reaper-10See all my reviews

A short story at it's best. I loved this!! I first saw this in 1985 and I couldn't wait till it was on again to record it. I recorded it on Beta (who could have known), and I must have watched it at least 20 times before the player gave out. I never grow tired of this.

It's so spooky and supernatural. Part of it gave me chills. I knew this show was different from the start. And Gary Busey as Reverend Nolan is just icing on the cake. No one can match his strangeness, except maybe for Christopher Walken. I've never thought about religion the same since.

This is a must see. You've got to share it with others.
