I've been a huge fan of Tales From The Crypt ever since I was a youngin and while there are a few episodes that have stuck with me throughout the years, there's one in particular that i'd have to give the illustrious honor of calling my favorite. I just found the full episode on YouTube (thanks to user 321HereWeGo - he's got a bunch of Tales episodes uploaded) and I wanted to share it with you guys. It's from Season 5 (disc 1 of the DVD) and originally aired on October 13th, 1993. With a star studded cast including Bill Paxton and Brad "Chucky" Dourif, I bring to you ....
People Who Live In Brass Hearses
A small-time crook (Bill Paxton), with the help of his dim-witted brother (Brad Dourif), sets out to get revenge on an ice cream truck driver (Michael Lerner) who put him in prison years ago, but get a nasty surprise when they attempt to rob the driver's ice cream warehouse.
Enjoy this particularly gory episode!

It's no secret that i'm both a serious Paxton nut and I have a serious ice cream man fixation (not to mention ice cream man + horror = gold), so it was pretty much written in stone that this episode was gonna be my fave. And for some reason that opening scene of The Paxtonator chowing down on a stick of butter has stayed with me for at least a decade. I can never pick up a stick without being reminded of it! Damn you, Bill Paxton!
Any other fans of this one? For that matter, what is your favorite Tales From The Crypt episode?
