June 6, Writer: John Kneubuhl adaptationRobert E. Howard original story Director: William Frye, Maxwell Shane Cast: At first glance, its creators seem content to embrace all the usual trappings that are trotted out to achieve cheap, impact-less scares. Two brothers Brandon De Wilde and David Whorf find their car broken down on an abandoned highway in the middle of nowhere.
They come upon a nearby abandoned mansion… and then the horrors begin to happen. But instead of a bunch of scares straight out of the Universal B-horrors of the s, writer John Kneubuhl and director John Newland aim to create the best movie Val Lewton never produced.
It is an adaptation of a great short story by Robert E. In the original story the young men are just friends, but here they are brothers. The original story worked fine without it, but here it gives the death extra significance, especially considering we only have five minutes with the characters before one is murdered.
Second, the short story takes place over the course of two or three days and nights, but Kneubuhl condenses the story to a single, endless night of horrors.
That way the atmosphere is relentless — the characters cannot escape the dark and neither can we. The most overt horror in the episode comes early: The aforementioned ax murder.
Despite the grisliness of what I have just described, the scene is played almost entirely by suggestion.
While Johnny stalks Timothy in the hallway, we never actually see the split skull or the brains… all we see are drops of blood streaming down the front of his face. Everything else is hidden by the shadows. Timothy manages to make it a few hundred yards away from the mansion before passing out.
He is brought to the nearest Sheriff Crahan Denton by a town hick, and when the Sheriff decides to take the boy back to the mansion to investigate, we get the single inadvertently funny moment of the episode: The hick busts out of the house they are in and rushes off into the nearby woods like the Roadrunner escaping the Coyote.
The Sheriff takes Timothy back to the mansion to investigate, and instead of a bunch of boo-scares and chains rattling, Newland provides viewers with a single, indelible image. Every time the duo enter the room where Johnny died, their kerosene lantern will not stay lit. The moment they exit the room, it comes back on.
Any fan of a good horror movie knows the darkness is much scarier than seeing what is in the darknessand that is never more obvious than here.Who’s Got the Biscotti?
