  • This is one of the best performance's of William Sadler's Career.

    Although this isn't one of the scariest episodes of the series, but it is one of the best done, I mean look who the director was,Walter Hill, the man responsible for Alien, The Warriors,and 48 Hrs.

    William Sadler (Credited here as Bill Sadler) is best known now for his role in The Shawshank Redemption, but this is one of the best performances of Sadler's career next to his role as Death in Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, his next Tales episode ,and his leading role in the first Tales movie Demon Knight.

    Although he's only in the episode for a few scenes, Roy Brocksmith gives a good performance as Vic the Bartender, in this, his first of three Tales episodes.

    and finally although he dies in the story, veteran actor Gerrit Graham gives a memorable appearence as Walter Carne, equal only to his performance in Phantom of the Paradise.
