Spooky, and mind numbing and spine tingling!

This episode of "The Hitchhiker" titled "The Curse" is well done and teaches a good moral lesson that you should do unto others as they do to you. Harry Hamlin("L.A. Law" star and Lisa Rinna beau)stars as a greedy and yuppie businessman who owns real estate for a living. One of his properties include a slum ghetto apartment building that mostly houses all African Americans and the poor. The building starts to fall apart the residents soon want answers because so many broken promises have came from Hamlin's character. It isn't until he meets a mysterious and sexy woman(Debbie Lacey)and after hot passion of romance and lust feelings of change and worry start to happen. The work of black magic makes a tattoo of a snake appear on his body crawling toward his neck for the kill. It's then that good will and joy is spread to the complex. Proving that when living in other peoples world you must treat them fairly or face deadly consequences that they can bring on from their underworld. Good episode for the moral lesson it teaches.
