All over the place
10 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

One of the silliest episodes yet, it is all over the place. There is a bit of comedy, a bit of drama and a bit of horror in it, but not enough of any to really make a good story. But the make-up and humorous ending make it worth the watch.

This story is about the Crypt Keeper's parents, one a mistreated side-show freak with two faces and the other a dead ancient mummy. I can see the resemblance, really.

Besides the goofy conclusion, the episode does have a decent carnival atmosphere and shows how badly the freaks were treated around that time. I felt bad for the Crypt Keeper's daddy.
