The STUFF Nightmares are Made of
9 October 2008 | by mattressman_pdlSee all my reviews

The closing episode of season one is a delightful little tale which finds an old, cantankerous man discovering a new love for animals.

Jonas (M. Emmett Walsh) has just been giving mandatory retirement. Missing work is one thing, but his doting wife has populated the house with more animals than anyone knows what to do with. The transition is an awkward, even painful one as Jonas soon realizes there may not be enough room in his house for him and his wife's adored pets. But a newfound appreciation for a certain hobby may save the day! Containing one of the most fantastically brutal endings in Crypt's run, Collection completed is a wonder. It starts out simple and non-threatening, continues to be simple and non-threatening, but by the time the audience realizes what Jonas is up to...one thing is inevitable: Just desserts have never tasted so sweet.
