  • Fave episode

    This one is my all time favourite. Not too violent, yet creatively creepy. The killer ending was awesome.
  • A Warlock wants his money and he thinks was robbed

    The only reason this episode is worth seeing is because Carol Kane is one of the stars. Her Tales from the Crypt episode "Judy, You're Not Yourself Today" is ten times better than this episode. This is definitely one of the most overrated in the series. It's not scary, and by the end of the episode, it is just plain silly. I guess it does have a moral, to not play with things you don't know how to control, especially when someone else knows how to. Overall, it is definitely not the best in the series, but there have been worse things
  • A Witch and Warlock battle for the winning ticket!

    Snip Snip was on the first week of Darkside\'s return to Sci-Fi. I really liked Carol who portrayed the witch very nicely....quite a cutie too and yet evil! I rewatch it strictly cause of her and she is a joy to watch. It was fun watching her put the warlock in his place for trying to steal her ticket. Apparently, the \"Spirits\" like her more and I can see why. Quite a nice finish showing the warlock\'s head as one of her new mannikin haircuts. Although I kinda saw it coming after she killed him. lol...

    All in all, another above average Darkside episode that deserves to be seen and given a shot! It\'s no \"Inside The Closet\" but it\'s certainly deemed worthy in my eyes.
  • Carol Kane plays a wicked witch out to win a million dollar ticket.

    Not my favorite episode but it was pretty unique. A warlock using magic thinks he's hit the jackpot when his spirits say 666 are the lucky lotto numbers.

    To his surprise the numbers are off by one digit. Naturally he decides to stalk the woman who won the numbers. As it turns out she's a witch with even more powers than him.

    This was a mix of everything comedy and horror. Carol Kane's character while initially the victim is as worse the warlock, and that last scene is pretty cold and wicked.

    Overall it was a good episode watching it for the first time in a lot it brought back good memories from the show.
    Not really an episode I would rewatch but a decent episode.
