  • A man out of a job goes on his own killing spree and punishes those who break the law and get off free

    This is the perfect episode to start a horror series with. It's not that it is really scary, per se, but extremely interesting. What's not to like about a guy going around dishing out his own justice to the people who thinks deserves it? In a way, he's kind of like a superhero without the costume. William Sadler is excellent as the main character in the story and the way he kills off people is really fun to watch. I have always loved this episode and it probably ranks in my top 10 favorite Tales from the Crypt episodes. A must see!
