Movie Info

Married couple Jean (Cloris Leachman) and Jim Mitchell (Ross Martin) stop at a rundown roadside eatery. When time comes to leave, Jean is ready, but Jim isn't. In fact, Jim is nowhere to be found. Jean's anguished efforts to locate her husband are mysteriously blocked by the hulking restaurant proprietor (Ned Beatty). This variation on the old radio play "Cabin 13" was written by Richard Matheson. The made-for-TV Dying Room Only debuted September 18, 1973.

All Critics (2)

... a terrifying place to be alone when the sun goes down and the only people around are suspects in your husband's disappearance.

In many ways, [Matheson] was able to expand on the rather abrupt story and into a more complete tale of suspense.
