| A funny episode that was pretty clever.
Guest stars young Christian Slater.

In this episode we are treated to an old man. We start off grieving his death with the mother and the son (Slater). Then we are introduced to our recently deceased old man. It's another game of cat and mouse where Christian Slater tries to prove that his grandfather is dead. It was well acted and directed and the gore effects are gross and cool. The ending is quite humorous, and it was an overall funny and light hearted episode. Brent Spiner makes a guest appearance as the priest that visits the house.

My rating: Great episode. 21 mins. TV PG V


Release Date:
