Nightmares and Dreamscapes: 1 for 1

Nightmares & Dreamscapes: From The Stories Of Stephen King

It's an anthology series of eight one-hour episodes adapted from King's short stories.

Battleground- Rocked!
Jason Renshaw (Hurt), a professional hit man, successfully murders the CEO of a prestigious toy company, only to face the biggest fight of his life when a package from the toy company is delivered to his house with surprising, deadly contents.

It's a dark Toy Story gone wrong.

Crouch End- Not so much...
A newlywed American couple (Bailey and Forlani) honeymooning in London goes to Crouch End to have dinner with a friend. They soon learn the town is not what it appears to be, and the more they get lost, the more they become trapped in another dimension.

People on the internets were all giddy over this one because this story featured the Cthulhu mythos. (I still don't get the whole Cthulhu thing. It's a scary octopus or something right?)

Battleground seemed like the best of the Outer Limits. Crouch End was worse that the new Twilight Zone.The story had potential. I'll keep watching but I hope Crouch End was the worst of it.
