Additional Info

Jay Westcott and Nessa Paxton are two of Hollywood's most successful stars and a happily married couple. While filming on location, Nessa sustains an accidental blow on the head and flees to her home in Beverly Hills before anxious studio staff members can stop her. She bursts in on Jay and, nearly incoherent with hysteria, insists she is really Polly Ackerman, a girl who vanished just before their marriage. Jay fears for her sanity and, over her protests, he allows the studio to find her and provide medical help. Several strange events make him suspect she might be telling the truth and that something incredibly evil is going on at the studio where he may be the next victim. For an evening of plausible nightmare, suspense and breathtaking terror with a shocking surprise ending, this show can't be excelled.
