One of a couple voodoo Tales from the Darkside episodes. This is my least favorite of them, but it's clever enough. It's about a man trying to be a successful writer, but just can't. Once he gets a new agent, Mr. Kellaway (played by the late but great Charles Knapp from Twilight Zone: The Movie) he becomes successful, but he has to kill some animals and do rituals for it to work. It's a fairly memorable episode with a good cast that doesn't get as much attention as it should. The ending is a morbid twist so it fits with the series quite well. Found on VHS volume 2.

My rating: Good episode. 20 mins. TV PG V
