Welcome back to all of you fans of fiendish film and TV! Those howls you hear from the creatures of the night need be no cause for alarm, you are safe down here with us in the Retroist vault! Us? Yeah, that’s the one and only Doug McCoy behind the concession stand and you can see the esteemed Daniel XII manning the projector! Tonight thanks to the suggestion of Retroist Regular MadPlanet we have the ninth episode from Season One of the Tales From The Darkside entitled “A Case of the Stubborns”. It is based on the original story by Robert Bloch (Psycho, Night Gallery) and deals with a family that is trying to come with grips on the passing of a loved one…or the fact that the loved one passed away but is too stubborn to believe he has died.
This episode stars Eddie Bracken (National Lampoon’s Vacation, Home Alone 2) as Grandpa Titus Tolliver, he is the one with refuses to believe he has passed away. A 15 year-old Christian Slater (Heathers, Robin Hood) as Jody Tolliver and Brent Spiner (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Independence Day) as Reverend Peabody. This episode is darkly funny and a little on the gross side to boot.
So come join us tonight as we visit the Darkside and learn how bad it is to have a case of the stubborns.
