When Elie and Mickey find Uncle Arthur's body, it is lying face down. Without turning him over, one of them says, "Look at his throat." The throat would not have been visible. This is repeated in the later flashback. See more »

There Aren't Any More MacBanes
16 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this segment, adapted by Alvin Sapinsley from the Stephen Hall short story By One, By Two, and By Three, Elie Green and Mickey Standish, recent Bard College graduates, arrive to find their dorm mate Andrew MacBane (Joel Grey) in yet another argument with his uncle, Arthur Porter (Howard Duff, husband to actress and director Ida Lupino) over Andrew's studies of witchcraft and the occult, which Porter sees as wasteful of Andrew's time and Porter's money. Andrew hasn't graduated yet despite his being older than Elie and Mickey due to his studies of witchcraft and the occult, and to top it all off, hasn't found a suitable job, which displeases Porter no end. As he leaves, Porter informs Andrew that if he doesn't find a job in 6 months, Porter will disinherit him. Andrew isn't concerned, devoting his energies to finding the 10 missing pages of his ancestor, 17th century sage Jedidiah MacBane, who was rumored to be able to kill from long distances without leaving home. He did in his worst enemy, his best friend, and his best friend's wife in this way. Then something did Jedidiah in. Andrew is anxious to find the 10 missing pages from Jedidiah's diary to find out what the thing was that did Jedidiah in, and how he summoned forth the thing to do in those 3 people. After 6 months pass, Porter arrives to inform Andrew that 5 minutes after 10 in the morning when the bank opens the next day, he will cut Andrew off. As Porter leaves, Andrew says "zap", and a shadowy red eyed figure kills Porter on campus, facilitating Andrew's inheritance of Porter's finances. When Elie and Mickey visit Andrew at his ancestral home, they notice him burning some papers in the fireplace, and also hear a growling outside the door, which prompts them to ask if Andrew is keeping a dog as a pet. After a while, Elie receives a telegram from Andrew begging him to warn Mickey that his life is in danger, but when Elie does so, he's informed that Mickey has been killed by a leopard, and is menaced by something evil at his apartment. After the danger has passed, Elie visits Andrew, who admits that he'd found the missing pages of Jedidiah's diary and used the spell on the first page to summon forth the same demon that Jedidiah did, using it to get rid of his uncle, then Andrew found out from reading the other 9 pages that it's a jealously loyal servant demanding to be given victims regardless of whether they are friend or foe, and he, like Jedidiah, can't get rid of the demon except to deny it victims. Andrew also admits that after he got rid of his uncle, he gave Mickey to the demon after initially refusing to do so, then the demon attempted to get Elie, only stopping after Andrew called it back. Andrew then says that after him, there aren't any more MacBanes after the demon is destroyed, and the demon bursts in to try to get Elie, but Andrew gets in its way, dying in the process, which kills the demon, just as when Jedidiah did it, leaving a pile of ashes next to Andrew's corpse. Spoiler alert: When he adapted Hall's tale, Sapinsley moved its setting from Cambridge University and the wilds of Scotland to Bard College and New England almost 3 centuries after the Salem Witchcraft Trials.
