  • A salesman gets a taste of his own music.

    Tales from the Crypt is unique in the sense that it combines horror stories with a twisted, bizarre style of humor. Think The Twilight Zone, but with cursing.

    "Death of Some Salesman" is an episode worthy of being compared to the legendary Rod Serling series. It starred Ed Begley Jr. in a role perfect for him, a cocky, arrogant conman who tries to use his lying to get out of one last sale.

    How many shows would have a fat man ready to kill you if you could not get an erection? My guess is not too many. This was just a great episode, with a creepy family and a good, though predictable twist at the end.
