You are watching: Come out come out wherever you are movie

Lynda Day George tells her tale to a disbelieving John Carboy and also Colette O’Neil in Thriller episode Come Out, Come Out Wherever before You Are (1974)

The next morning, we’re presented to the hotel owners, Arthur and Alice Lewis (played by Carson and O’Neil), and guests Paul (Holley) and Miss Pendy (Weir), both of whom were disturbed by the scream in the night. Coming down for breakquick, Cathy enquires about the whereabouts of her cousin, but nobody appears to have any type of expertise of Jane having actually checked in with her…

There’s absolutely plenty going on in this one! Arthur seems to have actually a drink difficulty, Alice might be having actually a fling through Paul, Cathy is taking pills for an undisclosed ailment, still having flashbacks to the picture of her cousin teetering over the edge of the tower, and that is the fella walking around the hotel through a rolled up carpet?

At the same time, when the police come to investigate it appears they’re not above making use of a little bit of brutality or helping themselves at the hotel bar. This would certainly end up being par for the course once The Sweeney debuted on ITV the complying with year but would certainly most likely have actually been an even more controversial depiction when Come Out, Come Out Wherever You Are was broadcast just a couple of months previously.

A long flashago sequence in the direction of the end ultimately puts the audience in the image, and police officer Dexter (the ever before reliable Peter Jeffrey) gets his culprit. It’s most likely among the even more far-fetched and convoluted reveals in the series, and the added twist at the incredibly end comes dangerously close to over-egging the pudding but Brian Clemens just, JUST manages to pull it off. There’s not many kind of other writers that could gain away with it.

TRIVIA NOTES: The second appearance in Thriller for Spooky Isles favourite John Carchild, following series one’s Possession. A long-time frifinish of Brian Clemens, Carboy had actually additionally freshly appeared in Clemens’ single directorial effort, the late Hammer favourite Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter, which had its limited theatrical release two months before this episode of Thriller aired.

Lynda Day George presumably made the trip to the UK via her husband also, Christopher George – he appears in the following episode, The Next Scream You Hear.

This was the just credited TV role for Kathleen Mallory. After two unattributed appearances in Space: 1999 the following year, she appears to have dropped out of sight.

Even by their usual inane requirements, the alternative titles for the later US TV-Movie variation truly surpass themselves in bizarreness. “What the hell?” doesn’t also begin to cover it, as an extremely negative stand-in for Kathleen Mallory is chased about a hardwood by someone in a Halloween skeleton costume via a knife, for no fathomable factor whatsoever before. It has to be viewed to be believed.
