Trivia

The movie mentioned in the episode, "Spider's Kiss," does not exist. The title was most likely made up by King as a mini-tribute to his fellow writer and friend (and fellow contributor to TFTD), Harlan Ellison, who did write a novel titled "Spider's Kiss." See more »

Nice twist.
3 August 2006 | by TOMNELSee all my reviews

Written by Stephen King.

Stephen King wrote this pretty mild and silly episode about a woman getting a phone call from someone warning her. It is a slow moving episode that really has very little substance. It has a pretty good twist ending, but most could've figured it out about half way through. It's not really a badly written episode. All the dialog is realistic enough and it's not corny, it just disappointed me. Why would Stephen King write such a mediocre episode like this? Can be found on VHS volume 4.

My rating: OK episode. 20 mins. TV PG
