**The Man That Was Death** -- **5 Stars** > Aww, poor little fellas. When I think of their childhood, all those cute little maggots hahahahaha. Our story is about a man with nobler ambitions. He likes to kill human pests and he does it in front of an audience. Now that's entertainment hahahaha. So hang onto your hats kiddies, this one's a real shocker. Niles Talbot (William Sadler) is a prison executioner that is just a little too good for his job. He works the electric chair. One of his favorite things in life is pulling the switch and watching the life dissipate from his victims. When the state does away with capital punishment and Talbot is let go from his job. He decides to keep the execution game going and hunts down criminals and doling out punishments on his own. This is the first ever Tales from the Crypt episode and that makes it pretty interesting. Our main character, Niles Talbot introduces a dark humor to the story when he breaks the fourth wall and conversates with the audience. It's executed really well and it sets the tone for the entire series.
