One of the Finest Killer Toupee Movies Ever!
25 May 2014 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This reminds me of those early Roger Corman cheapies. A young lawyer, on his first case, comes to realize that a toupee from hell has been responsible for a series of murders committed by bald men. The toupee tends to escape as its victim/murderers are about to be apprehended, snarling with a threatening, guttural voice. The lawyer fights a battle to the death with the evil hairpiece. Needless to say, this is entirely off the wall. Some of the writers criticized this series as betraying its goals. But is "Amazing Stories" supposed to be like "The Twilight Zone" or "Tales from the Crypt." Some of them are, like "Mirror, Mirror," but mostly they are just a collection of all kinds of odd tales. This one makes you laugh and maybe that's all the writers wanted you to do. So don't get your hair in a mess.
