Three Tales From the Crypt Episodes That Are Always Floating In The Back Of My Brain

1. Death of Some Salesmen- S.5 Ep. 1. starring Ed Begley, Jr, Tim Curry (x 3!)
  A down and dirty salesman(Begley, Jr.) peddles his wares at the wrong house. Who lives here? Why, Pa, Ma and Winona Brackett, of course, a delightfully insane family, all played by the wonderfully delightful Tim Curry. Begley learns a few lessons, and also a new meaning for "down and dirty."

2. Forever Ambergris- S.5 Ep. 3. starring Steve Buscemi, Roger Daltry, Lysette Anthony
  Daltry is a burnt out combat photographer who falls deep into lust with the luscious wife(Lysette) of the new kid in photography(Buscemi) When he sees his chance for a comeback, and a way to win the lovely Lysette, Daltry takes it, with some gory results. But don't worry, revenge is sweet. And nearly as gory.

3. Carrion Death- S.3 Ep. 2. starring Kyle MacLachlan
  Bad boy Earl(MacLachlan) is arrested for bank robbery and murder, and is then transported across the desert, handcuffed to a policeman, to be tried for his crimes. All hell breaks loose when Earl kills the cop, only to lose the handcuff keys down the cop's gullet. Now Earl and his "dead weight" are off on a different kind of trek across the desert, but the dead cop isn't Earl's only company on this particular trip.

*Bonus: On a Deadman's Chest- S.4 Ep. 3. starring Heavy D, Tia Carrere, and some other dudes.
  Lead Singer of a popular hard rock group is at odds with the new wife(Carrere) of the Guitar Player. He views her as Yoko Ono, she views him as an egomaniacal brat. When a Groupie hooks up our Lead Singer with a mysterious, one-eyed tattoo artist(D) things really come to a head. Murder, betrayal, and magic tattoos. And Tia Carrere's cleavage!(There is also a very obvious penis in this episode, which I rediscovered after renting this disk from Netflix)
