Tales from the Crypt: Four Sided Triangle (1990)

By Melissa Antoinette Garza This is one of my favorite episodes.  I would always look forward to this one when it would replay on HBO.  It isn’t that it’s particularly frightening, but it’s most certainly an original tale with great acting and a conclusion that offers a punch.
