Back with his usual complement of horrific stories (and even more horrific clumsy puns and bum jokes) is our congenial -- or congealed -- host, The Cryptkeeper, who ushers in season five of Tales From the Crypt. Tim Curry and Ed Begley Jr. headline the season opener "Death of Some Salesman," in which an overzealous cemetery plot peddler falls for the wrong farmer's daughter. This episode originally aired as part of a 90-minute special, bundled together with two subsequent Tales From the Crypt: "As Ye Sow" (with Hector Elizondo) and the irresistibly titled "Forever Ambergris" (with Roger Daltrey). Some of the season's better entries include "Well Cooked Hams," featuring Martin Sheen as you've never seen him before; "Came the Dawn," starring Brooke Shields as a sexy hitchhiker who lures a two-bit thief (Perry King) into an unearthly crime of passion; and the season five finale, "Till Death Do We Part," with Eileen Brennan as center of attention in a mob hit...and a scorned lover's vengeance. ~ Hal Erickson
