11 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

'Since Aunt Ada Came To Stay' - Aunt Ada(played by Jeannette Nolan) comes to stay with her daughter and son-in-law and proceeds to turn their lives upside down... Witchy tale has fine acting, and a nice build-up to a surprising ending.

'With Apologies To Mr. Hyde' - Awful Jekyll & Hyde spoof is entirely unfunny and pointless, with a limp punch line.

'The Flip Side Of Satan' - Arte Johnson plays a big city radio DJ forced to stay in a small-time station that plays bizarre music, and its all with a most sinister purpose in mind... Johnson is amusing in darkly comedic tale written by story editor Gerald Sanford.
