Dying Room Only (1973)
Tagline: She's Alone. No One Believes Her. And There's No Way Out.
Directed by: Philip Leacock
Written by: Richard Matheson
Actors include: Cloris Leachman, Dabney Coleman, Ned Beatty
Length: 74 minutes
This is one of the most frustrating flicks ever. See it's all very exciting at first, a really big mystery, then as we think it's coming together it's really not going to give us much of anything. It's so intense leading up to that one practically has to sit on their hands, then to have no real pay out? Well that's just disappointing. What it's about is a young couple, Cloris Leachman and her hubby Dabney Coleman go into a crappy run down diner where folks are rude to them. Then Cloris goes into the restroom, comes out and finds her husband missing. The locals are shall we say less than helpful and we all know they are hiding something. Now this being a made-for-tv movie, I wasn't expecting much in the way of horror and really there isn't much. It's suspenseful sure, but I warn thee this isn't exactly fulfilling. Still it does have some creepy moments and the general feeling of being unsettled works very well here. If the pay out were better well this could have been amazing, but as it isn't only decent.
