A nice enough episode starring Whoopi
25 July 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A nice enough episode starring Whoopi. It is the very first episode with an actor on the show appearing together with the Crypt Keeper.

The story is about a criminal looking for a pearl somewhere in Africa. There wasn't really a great story behind it, and the twist wasn't all too surprising. But what makes this episode fun was Whoopi and the gore. It is one of the goriest episodes yet. There is a headless chicken and Duval being sliced open full of worms.

The acting was all right, but would not consider it to be great. Especially with such a great cast. The dialog is mainly forgettable and the effects are so-so. Still, a fun episode.
