In “Dolan’s Cadillac,” read by Rob Lowe, wealthy crime-boss Jimmy Dolan brutally murders a woman who is scheduled to testify against him, and her husband spends the next seven years plotting his revenge. Haunted by the voice of his dead wife, he will stop at nothing to exact his vengeance and allow his wife to rest in peace.
In “Suffer the Little Children,” read by Whoopi Goldberg, an elderly teacher at the Summer Street School, Miss Sidley is disturbed when one of her students tells her that, “Tomorrow a bad thing will happen.” When she probes further into the matter, she discovers that aliens are slowly taking over the bodies of her students. Is her attempt to save them an amazing act of courage, or a fatal trick of the mind?
In “Crouch End,” read by Tim Curry, police officers Farnham and Vetter are working the night shift and are discussing the case of Doris Freeman, a young woman who came in to report the disappearance of her husband. Nearly hysterical, Doris’s story involves monsters and other supernatural incidents. Farnham dismisses the story as rubbish, but Vetter, who has worked in Crouch End for years, is not so sure.
Yeardly Smith reads “Rainy Season,” a story in which a husband and wife come to Willow, Maine and will stay, despite protests from the locals, to
become sacrifices during the rainy season. When the “rain” starts, the couple must win the ultimate battle of Man vs. Nature if they have any hope of making it out alive.
