Welcome back to another installment of Saturday Frights! This evening for your viewing pleasure I am happy to share an episode of the New Twilight Zone entitled “Dealer’s Choice”, this episode was requested by none other than my fellow Retroist writer Doug McCoy who if you follow the link provided will find knows a thing or two about frights.
This particular episode was the third segment from the 8th episode of the first season that originally aired on CBS back on November 15, 1985. The story concerns four friends who have gathered to play a friendly game of Poker but end up beginning to believe that one of the guests sitting at the table is none other than the Devil himself. This episode was directed by the legendary Wes Craven and has quite a list of stars like Morgan Freeman, Dan Hedaya, M. Emmet Walsh, Barney Martin, and Garrett Morris
So why don’t you pull up a chair with Doug McCoy and I as we take a moment to watch this particular card game unfold as we visit the Twilight Zone on Saturday Frights?
A big thanks as always of course to the talented Sean Hartter for the awesome header you see up top!
