The reckless Eddie (Timothy Stack) and the correct Frank (Jonathan Stack) are Siamese brothers connected by their waists. Eddie wants to convince Frank to be submitted to a surgery with 50% of chances of success, but Frank is afraid. When Frank meets Marie (Jessica Harper) in a bar, he falls in love for her and decides to risk. But a secret is disclosed with fatal consequences, affecting the relationship of the brothers.

"My Brother's Keeper" is another good episode of "Tales from the Crypt". The dark story has two good twists, a surprising first one but the last one is predictable. Further, it is a chance to see Jessica Harper, the unforgettable Phoenix of "Phantom of Paradise". My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Jogo de Cintura" ("Waist Game")
