A man who is having an affair with a married woman is dropped off on the wrong street when going back to his hotel. He takes refuge out of the rain when an old man invites him in. He turns out to be a mortician, who tells him the stories of the people who have wound up in his establishment over the course of four stories. Written by

"A man in town for a convention gets lost while trying to return to his hotel room, after seeing a woman, and ends up being taken in by a mortician to wait out a storm. To pass the time, the mortician shows the man four recently deceased people and begins to tell him how each person ended up as an occupant of one of his coffins," according to the DVD sleeve's synopsis.
John Ericson (as Talmudge) is the man who finds refuge with mortician Ivor Francis, during the rainstorm. Mr. Francis' four stories aren't as enthralling as his characterization is appealing. Bernard Fox (as McDowal) is featured in the, passable, third story. Mr. Fox was, perhaps, most memorable the delightful witch doctor first called upon by "Samantha Stevens" on "Bewitched"; but, even "Dr. Bombay" can't save this plodding film. Charles Aidman (as Toliver) banters well with Fox.
"Alien Zone" was appropriately re-titled "House of the Dead".
Steve March, vocalizing the theme song "The Sound of Goodbye", sounds a little like his famous father.
