Dark Humor With Bizarre Characters
21 April 2011 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

A dead and very bloody secretary is found on top of an elevator with an ax in her head.

The suspects in here are bizarre, to say the least. Every one of them is whacked, from a guy who lives in the ceiling to someone who takes his classic car and commits vandalism on the victim's lawn to a vengeful female who poisons the victim and sees nothing wrong with that....to others. It's one crazy person after another! Even the victim - as we discover - is (was) a little nuts.

Thus, it's kind of stupid episode when you put all these things in here, but at least it was entertaining. You never knew what strange thing was going to develop next. Despite the gory murder, the episode with a comedy bit....so the writers were certainly aware this was not an episode to be taken too seriously!
