  • A demon, called the Yattering, tries his best to make a nice guy's day really bad.

    I really enjoyed this episode, especially since the Yattering is played by Phil Fondacaro. Phil Fondacaro is famous in his own right and has appeared on other films such as "Tales from the Crypt: Bordello of Blood" and is also on a few episodes of the TV series as well. This episode isn't scary, it isn't supposed to be, but it is about what it takes to make a nice guy go bad. Is it possible for the nice guy to loose faith in all that is good and turn his back forever? You will just have to watch and see. This is a fun episode that I really enjoyedmoreless
