A challenge to all wieners. I'm trying to identify something i saw on tv when i was a kid. I may have been a movie or possibly a twilight zone episode, I'm not really sure.

I remember the plot but no title or stars which makes it pretty hard to search imdb for it. So if this sound familiar to anyone please let me know. By the way I saw it in the mid to late eighties but it may have been made earlier.

So a woman gets a credit card offer and is happy to take it. She starts spending money and when she misses payments members of her family start disappearing and no one else can remember that they ever existed. Turns out that's the credit card company's way of making you pay and that it's all outlined in the fine print.

Does this ring any bells in any good memoried people's heads?

I don't remember seeing exactly what you described, but something similar. A woman goes into a shopping mall to by a present only to realize that she was one of the mall's mannequins who was granted temporary life. She tries to escape, but she got turned back into a mannequin as she was trying to leave, and another mannequin got her turn at having a life.

I know this was't what you wanted, but my story came from the TV show Amazing Stories, and I thought it might jog your memory. Unless....ya know....it's wasn't on Amazing Stories

Edit: Oops....it wasn't on AS. jfkfc beat me to it.

This was a Twilight Zone episode. Can't remember the name of it, though, but I've seen it a thousand times.

Okay, here's one for you. Probably already asked this here, but who knows.

I remember seeing it on NBC several years ago (like, probably 10). Stephen King stars (yes, he acted in this... dunno if he wrote or anything) as a farmer. Meteor crashes in his backyard, and he touches it. He then starts to gradually turn into a plant. Anyone remember this?
