The Lord Helps Those...Who Help Themselves
31 August 2011 | by (Iowa, United States) – See all my reviews

After losing his parents in a car accident, a teenage boy is forced to live with his penny-pinching, cruel uncle Ezra. Ezra is a mortician who quickly puts the young man to work in his mortuary. But after an accident resulting in an unneeded coffin, Ezra paralyzes the boy from the waist down. So, waste not, want not, Ezra arranges for young Bobby to meet his untimely demise...but the bothersome dead boy won't fit! Truly EC style, all the way. Moses Gunn is divinely evil as the morally corrupt Uncle Ezra, bringing to the screen one of the most evil characters in Crypt history. My only gripe is that the show's finale is spoiled by the opening comic page in the cryptkeeper segment...just like Carrion Death.
