Revenge is fitting! Remember be professional when working in the funeral business.
25 June 2007 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "Tales From The Crypt" episode really isn't one of the best, it mainly is just a mean spirited tale of revenge. You have Moses Gunn as a cruel and cold funeral home director who's greedy and money struck he's always disrespectful when treating clients. Then one day his sisters kid(Jon Clair)shows up when he's been orphaned after her death and you guessed it his uncle now has to raise him. Only their is no uncle type love as he works the young boy to death and treats him bad only to eventually deal with him in a real foot locker manner! Later on revenge will take place as is the theme in so many tales it's that bad people will receive their due. Overall OK not real scary or entertaining just a revenge type tale.
