In the penultimate story of this latest Dark Shadows short stories release, Carolyn Stoddard (Nancy Barrett), a fresh-faced young student at Salem University, starts receiving calls from her future self, guiding her in order to save the future. However, is this caller from the future really Carolyn’s future, or are dark forces attempting to influence her life? Nancy Barrett does an admirable job here as both a younger and older sounding version of Carolyn, impressive given the nearly 50 year difference from when she last played Carolyn. Barrett does a fine job leading the story and adding her own personal flair to the story with some fine acting. Ian Farrington’s script is a pretty standard affair, but manages to be quite interesting as a story that constantly moves forward in time. I quite like the framing device used here in this story of phone calls; one of the nice things is that each story in this set have felt different due to their varying narrative structure, and I liked the choice Farrington made with his script. Overall, the third story was an enjoyable forty-minutes of Dark Shadows; featuring some nice acting and a nice little script, it was everything one could hope for in a *Dark Shadows* script.
