Twilight Zone: The Movie just started on Retro, and the intro just finished.
To jog your memory: Two guys are driving in a car at night. They’re playing the TV theme song game, and then talk about scary things. The passenger says, ‘Do you want to see something really scary?’ They pull over to the side of the road. The passenger warns the driver that he’s going to do something really scary and turns away from the driver. The driver is smiling and chuckling in anticipation. The passenger turns back to him, and reveals himself as a hideous ghoul/demon/witch. The passenger lunges at the driver and grabs his throat. Cut to an exterior of the darkened car. There are screams, and it sounds like there are sounds of violence.
Question: Did the passenger kill the driver? It’s what I’ve always assumed. On the other hand, these guys are friends. Why would the passenger kill his friend as a joke? I mean, sure he’s a demon; but it seems a little pointless to kill the guy. Is it possible that he just roughed the driver up a bit to really scare the crap out of him? It’s been years since I’ve watched TMZ:TM, and I don’t recall if it’s the same demon in the call-back at the end.
