  • An old time theater was going out of busines ever since a larger theater moved into the same area, but when the manager gets the notice of foreclosure, he decides to play Dr. Vink's movie, Nosferatu: The Demon Vampire, the theater starts to find success.

    This is tied for my favorite episode along with The Tale of the Ghastly Grinner because it just plain scared me to death. As a 5 or 6 year old kid, I had numerous nightmares about this very eipisode. When I purchaesed a DVD set of the series, this episode still scared me for one reason: the vampire, Nosferatu. His long fingers, his pasty, deathly white skin, his tall, hunched stature, and his ominous walk send a myriad of chills down my spine. Also, the numerous glances he shoots at the camera made me think that he was looking right at me as a child. This was a magnificent episode that should be in everybody's top five list of AYAOTD.
