There was an episode of "Tales of the Unexpected" called "The Flypaper". The short story it is (very closely) based on can be read here if you have 5-10 minutes spare. It's a very well written piece which I feel may have been a little too close to the bone for the original TZ show but may have worked nicely in the 80s revival.

Thoughts?

Sounds interesting.

I liked it. Actually, this has a nice AHP feel to it. :D

Actually, now you mention it. It does fit nicely into AHP.

I read this one last night.

It does seem to fit into something Hitch might have something to do with.

It was decent, but generally I don't go for written stories too much anyways, so I am a bit biased.
Shows and movies hold my interest better.

Pretty good. Read it and watched the video. Lots of dread...
