One of the best episodes of the series finds Morton Downey Jr. as a sleazy, manipulative talk show host who attempts to earn big ratings by leading a tour into a haunted house. But the spirits are very much alive as Horton Rivers (Downey) comes face to face with a horror he had come to mock.

Suspenseful and humorous, this episode is better than much of the horror cinema to come out at the time. The supporting cast is terrific as well including Peter Van Norden as a techie with a distaste for Horton and his narcissism.

If you can only pick a handful of Crypt episodes, make sure this is one of them.
