One of my favorite screenplays.
3 August 2006 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

Guest starring Phil Fondacarro.

This was one of the strangest episodes. It's actually quite scary, but even more humorous. It deals with a nice old man and having his grown daughter over for Christmas. She becomes scared to death when odd things happen in the house, like a dancing turkey and a mirror breaking randomly. He ignores it. We learn this creature is called a Yattering (Fondacarro), and the creature is sent by Satan to drive people insane. If the Yattering touches a human, the Yattering becomes their slave. It's a fun and great episode. It can be found on VHS volume 5.

My rating: Perfect episode. 21 mins. TV PG
