Dead and Buried: I Mean the Episode
7 April 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

A couple is having trouble finding a motel to stop at. They end up at a strange one. In the room they rent is a tombstone with the name "White." It was left there by the monument maker who had spelled the name wrong. The wife (played by Shelley Duvall) is superstitious and a pain. She doesn't want to stay in the room with the gravestone. She believes there is a body under the floor. There is an old couple in the room below and he is quite ill. There are all kinds of representations of superstitions. Gee. I never figured this one out. It is scattered and lacking concision. One of the poorer efforts in this series. The people aren't interesting and the plot is entirely predictable.
