  • This is by far the scariest Tales from the crypt episode. The story is about a psychologist who recieves a call on his radio show from a women who has problems dealing with their daughters bad behavior.

    This episode is one of my favorites, It is the only one that scared me from the first 4 seasons. This episode has good acting, good direction, and great story. It will keep you on the edge of you're seat till the very end. If you are a tales from the crypt fan you will not be disapointed. I didn't give it a ten, because it isn't perfect, but very close.
