Storyline

When a hobo finds a dead man lying dead in a city alley, he decides to take his shoes, a pair of rather spiffy-looking loafers. In putting them on however, he becomes the dead man. He returns to his apartment, to his girlfriend's shock and more importantly, he knows who killed him. The dead man is also out for revenge and it seems nothing will be able to stop him.

Fancy Shoes
1 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A transient pulls a pair of shoes from a gangster, dumped in an alley. He then takes on the personality of the guy and continues his evil ways. Unfortunately, in the Twilight Zone, you can't get away with this. His actions are so much the same that he finds himself facing the same things that got him killed the first time. There is a pretty cool twist at the end, especially the expression on the new wearer's face as he puts the shoes on. The weakness of the episode is the same old gangster schtick that has been done a thousand times; that Hollywood gangster accent and the whole works. But the story is still quite intriguing.
