Episode Summary

A demented bee keeper, McCabe, uses a cursed antique beehive in a complicated scheme. First he turns loose the bees in the beehive, which kill someone and make a blood-honey. Then McCabe sells the honey to dying businessmen in return for lots of money. The businessmen must then kill their "replacement", and they take over their victims' bodies, abandoning their old lives. However, they have to keep eating the blood-honey (and paying McCabe more money) to maintain the bodies' health, or they revert back to their original dying infirmity. The trio get wind of the scheme, and kill McCabe with the help of one of the businessmen who finds that his new life isn't worth the loss of his loving, abandoned wife.moreless

  • A very good episode...mixing horror with sadness...

    In this episode of the series, a cursed bee hive is the focus of the episode but the background tale concerning an elderly bank employee and his wife. The hive is in the hands of an evil farmer/rural man, who sees using the hive to control other men and use them to gain power and influence. With this in mind, he gets the bank employee to agree to assume the life of his heartless boss with the promise of living a new life in his boss's identity. However, in order to continue living in his new form, he would have to follow the hive owner's instructions or be denied the honey made by the bees that inhabit the cursed hive. All in all, a plot that might be overcomplicated but is still interesting to the viewer.

    Overall, a very good episode of this series!moreless
