Like Sideshow Bob, Raymond certainly knows how to keep a grudge!
The plot for this made for TV film is very strange. Raymond (Dean Stockwell) failed an exam ten years ago and now, after having escaped from the mental institution, he returns to take his old teacher, Ms. Bloomquist (Jane Wyman) prisoner and forcing her to relive his moment of failure. In other words, she MUST pass him or die...or he might just kill her regardless!
The film has a lot of good and a bit of bad. Dean Stockwell is the best thing about the film--he's great as the deranged ex-student. The plot is also bizarrely original. But it also suffers a tad from too much exposition when the film begins. Instead of naturally giving backstory slowly and naturally, it's very forced--as if they are explaining things to the audience. The ending, also, is a bit of a letdown. Overall, it's worth seeing even if it is a mixed bag.
