One Very Frightening Episode and a Couple of Weak Ones
16 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm rating this highly because of the first episode, "Deliveries in the Rear." A doctor, who teaches at a clinic in what seems to be the 1800's, expects his students to use dissection of cadavers to learn the medical profession. The young men who make up his classroom have varying responses. One day one of them comments on the fact that this was a man. The doctor says that the dead are of no importance, only the knowledge we gain from exploring them. There is a kicker. Where are these people coming from? We know but the public does not. They are provided by a couple of ghoulish men who show up at the back door. One day they are severely criticized for bringing in a corpse that has been around for a couple days, hence, not usable. They promise him that he can count on him and the next day a person is brought in that has not even experience rigor mortis. The doctor's obsession will bring about one of the most startling of conclusions that any of these stories has.

The second, "Stop Killing Me," wouldn't be worth a thing if it were not for the paranoid ramblings of Geraldine Page, a great character actress. The story, however, about a woman who insists that her husband is killing her bit by bit doesn't hold much water.

The third, "Dead Weight," has Jack Albertson providing a service for Bobby Darin (yes, the Mack the Knife Bobby Darin). Albertson advertises that he is one hundred percent reliable in getting people and things to their destination. And he is. The story is full of holes and quite unsatisfying. One question. Is there any mention of a canning factory?
