Hall of Creeps: On a Country Road

SuspenseI find it kind of funny when going back through my Hall of Creep archive that most of the shows have been produced by Suspense. I promise that the next update will be of a different show. For the time being, here’s a show that really creeped me out back in the day. Imagine, if you will, that you are out driving in a rather derelict part of the world, and instead of taking the known route, you take an off traveled route. Now, imagine if you just heard an axe murderer escaped from the local insane asylum, and your car just happens to run out of gas. Stuck in pouring rain with no place to go, you hear a knock on the window from a woman seeking shelter in the rain. Such is premise of this show, and it is creepy. It stars Cary Grant who does a great job at freaking you out. Enjoy!

    I think there are a couple of versions of this one. The version I’ve heard suffers from a weak bit at the end — the actor playing the policeman almost throws away his last line which is (ahem) very important to the plot. To me it makes a mess of the whole story.

    I saw another version of this in my download bin, but I opted to go with the Cary Grant version in terms of experience. I’ll definitely check out the other versions and let you know what I think. Cheers!

    The Cary Grant version is THE best one…imho anyway.
