Saturday Frights: The Twilight Zone – “The Misfortune Cookie” (1986)

Saturday Frights - Sean Hartter
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 XIII manning the projector. We also have good friend to the Retroist site Claymation Werewolf as head usher and Phishbo3s in the ticket booth!

This week we have the third segment from the latest 80s Anthologies: Episode By Episode Podcast entitled “The Misfortune Cookie”. It stars Elliot Gould (MASH, Capricorn One) as a gourmet food critic that finds his petty and unkind business tactics may be justly punished in the Twilight Zone when he is introduced to the special fortune cookies of Mr. Lee’s Chinese restaurant.
