    I am trying to find the name of an episode of Tales from the Darkside. Its about a nerdy teenage boy who gets told that a girl likes him by 3 mean boys who lure him to her house. When he confronts her she embarrasses him and he runs off and I think from being so humiliated kills himself, at his funeral his mother dressed all in black and looks like a witch vows revenge on the 3 boys she holds responsible for her sons death.She says something like 1 by sea 2 by sky 3 by something or other I can not remember the rest. And sure enough the boys find themselves ins sitsuations that fit what she said. And 1 at a time they all die. I thought that was so scarey, but I cant remember the name of it. Since halloween is almost here I thought it would be fun to watch it again. If anyone reading this knows what I am talking about please e- mail me back, its driving me crazy trying to remember it. Thank You. donna68@cox.net is my address. Thanks again!

    Hmmm, I can't say I have seen or heard of this episode. o_O;

    Maybe it'll come on this coming Monday. You should read through the episode summaries and see what sounds most like what your describing.

    IMDb.com shows a complete listing of episodes as well as summaries and reviews of each one. Try that site! One episode I can't locate is the one where the old man dies and comes back to his family from the grave. They are very patient and kind with him despite his deteriorating condition, and they try to convince him that it's not a good idea for him to stay among the living for very much longer. They even bring the local priest to their house to try to talk some sense into him! When the Priest says, "The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away," the dead relative replies, "Well He aint' gonna taketh away ME!!!!"

     LOL!!!! CLASSIC!

    Does any one remeber this episode?

    The episode you are talking about is called A Case of the Stubborns from season 1. It already aired on scifi in October but it will be airing again on December 5, 2006 at 11 A.M Eastern Standard Time.

    Case of the Stubborns was good, from a great Robert Bloch short story. As a kid, In the Closet was the one that scared the senses out of me. I think it still holds up as a good episode after all these years.
