** And for bonus points, said voice was Creator/SamKinison, so the fact that [[spoiler: he'd been on death-row for ''two years'' hearing only Kinison's voice adds another layer to the whole thing]]. No wonder he was so eager to die!

* "Split Second" involves a woman who marries the boss of a gang of lumberjacks. She is so bored that she begins an affair with one of the other lumberjacks, but cries rape when her husband catches them, resulting in the husband attacking the guy with an axe and blinding him. The other workers' response is to [[spoiler: kidnap the woman and her husband and place them inside hollow logs for the blind lumberjack to saw in half; he realizes what is happening fairly early on, but joyfully goes through with it anyway. There's a lovely gory shot of the bodies chopped into four parts]].

Added DiffLines:

** It tells you how horrifying the situation is when the Crypt Keeper actually has to reassure the audience that Clyde did manage to escape this predicament. However, he says it took Clyde a ''couple years'' to do so.
* "Doctor of Horror": two bumbling security guards agree to help Dr. Orloff sneak some corpses out of the morgue for his experiments (all to find where the soul is and harvest it). Richard is all in for the payday, but Charlie eventually starts having second thoughts (particularly as things escalate and Richard attacks their boss to use as an experiment). At Orloff's suggestion, Richard kills Charlie both to keep him quiet and for further experimentation. Orloff gets the soul, and Charlie gets to hack up his Charlie's body, but we all know it doesn't end there. [[spoiler:What's left of Charlie comes back with a vengeance, beheading Orloff and getting work cutting up a very conscious, strapped down Richard]].

Added DiffLines:

* "Staired In Horror"'s story is about a house that has a strange effect on the people who enter it. Males walking upstairs age, but females who do become younger and vice versa. Now, the man hiding from the police makes the mistake of forgetting this and hides all the way up in the attic and...well, he ends up aging a hundred years and is reduced to a shriveled husk barely alive. And when his female accomplice goes upstairs to check on him, all he can do is watch in horror as she turns into a baby before his very eyes.


* The ending of "Carrion Death". The criminal falls from a mountain, survives but ends up paralyzed from a broken neck...and is eaten alive by vultures.

* How about "Abra Cadaver"? A good deal of the episode is told from the POV of a man [[AndIMustScream trapped in his own body]] thanks to his vengeful brother using a special drug on him that keeps the brain alive but the body unresponsive (for a while), who is on the verge of getting cut apart at a medical school. Sure, it turns out to be a prank, [[spoiler: but then the drug gives him a heart attack and he dies for real, but his brother attempts to save him with the same drug. The final shot is of him about to get cut apart...''while still feeling everything'']].
--> '''Carl:''' Well, here it is at last: my autopsy. God damn it Marty, you were absolutely right. Except about one thing! The sense of touch, it isn't the first thing to go! '''IT'S THE''' '''''LAST!'''''

* The [[spoiler: elderly zombies]] in "None But The Lonely Heart". [[spoiler: The two most recently deceased (whose deaths we saw in the episode) are rotting and slimy. The third is little more than a dried-up, mummy-like husk. The fourth is a worm-ridden skeleton in a rotting wedding dress. The episode ends with all of them cornering the protagonist in a mausoleum and chowing down on him with a nauseating crunch.]]

** Then there's the ending: the photographer's rival (who sent him into the infected zone in the first place) ends up with the dead guy's girlfriend, just as he planned. As the killer and the photographer's girlfriend are having sex, she reveals that [[spoiler: she knows he killed her boyfriend; before his death, he wrote her a letter revealing everything. Oh, and he also sent her the balsam they just smoked -- which he obtained from the same infected village. As she writhes atop him, [[NauseaFuel her veins burst open, spraying them both with black, infected blood]]]]. As if [[UpToEleven that weren't enough]], [[spoiler: the murderer runs to the bathroom, frantically trying to wash off the blood -- only for his nose to fall off into the sink.]] ''Yikes.''
