what the heck did I just watch?!?!
24 June 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When you read through the reviews of the various episodes of "Amazing Stories", you'll probably notice that I tend to be a lot harsher in my assessments of the episodes. However, even a defender of this series would be hard pressed to stand up for this ultra bizarro and amazingly unsatisfying episode. Aside from starring Adam Ant, I can't think of any reason to see it.

The Lewis family moved into a nice new house recently. Oddly, however, they notice a new family living in the place across from them...even though the house isn't even finished! The Hellenbecks turn out to be total weirdos...and they also are potentially VERY dangerous for those around them. Why? See the show...or not.

The bottom line is that this show makes little sense and seems like it was written by a 7 year-old. Perhaps it was....that's the only way I could explain what I just saw! A twisted mess of a show that just seemed awful.
