The Weird Customer
31 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Henry Jones stars as the titular weird tailor, who is hired by an equally weird customer(played by George Macready) to make a most special suit to very specific directions. In desperate need of money, the tailor accepts but his wife Anna feels uneasy about the whole thing, and with good reason, since unknown to them, the customer intends to use the suit in a black magic ceremony to resurrect his recently deceased son... Not entirely convincing yet effective tale is best known for its chilling twist ending involving Hans the mannequin that does indeed make the episode work. Later filmed with Barry Morse for the anthology film "Asylum". Morse is better than Jones, but otherwise this is the superior version.
