Episode five of the first season is a nice, Gothic story of a young woman who has recently married a man who is only after her vast fortune.

Peggy and Charles have just gotten married, and they're both ecstatic. Peggy has found love and Charles has found Peggy's money. But an accident on the way to their honeymoon leaves the two stranded and looking for a place to crash for the night. What they find, a large, empty house, may prove more trouble than it's worth as Charles sees what appears to be the ghost of Peggy's mother murder Peggy's father.

This episode takes a while to get under the skin, but once it does it is hard to shake. Seemingly simple and quaint, the episode takes a dark, clever turn as the end is revealed and their wonderful honeymoon is tragically CUT short. Amanda Plummer is amazing, as is the rest of the cast. An underrated Crypt Classic!
