Episode 908- The
Touch of Satan
Other than that, this is the charming story of a perfectly
normal non-film-star type of fellow named Jody who stumbles
onto a walnut ranch that's actually a direct entryway into a
world of witches and devil-worship. The "daughter," Melissa,
who looks oh so fetching in her little skirts, is actually
over 120 years old. Her wildly wrinkled and murderous "great
grandmother" is actually her sister Lucinda; way back when,
see, a crowd of lethargic locals wanted to burn Lucinda at
the stake, believing, and correctly, that she was a witch.
So Samantha saved her by selling her soul to the devil.
The people who are apparently her parents? It's unclear who
they are. It's never really explained. They may just be
walnut farmers who happen to own a witch.
So, Jody saves Melissa from the Devil by sleeping with her,
in a scene particularly devoid of sensuality and chest hair;
but since it turns out Melissa is then going to die, he then
sells his and her soul back to the Devil. The paperwork must
have been a nightmare.
Prologue: Crow and Servo go a-wassailing. Since Mike has
no wassail, they get his debit card and PIN number.
One: Mike finds some canned
wassail. In the castle, Pearl is gone and has left Brain Guy
and Bobo with a baby-sitter, Steffi. She treats Brain Guy
like a little boy, and Bobo like a dog. "No! No
Segment Two: Mike tries being a walnut farmer and is
immediately unbelievably sweaty, like the guy in the movie.
Servo's a pecan farmer, and is not sweaty at all.
Segment Three: Crow's convinced he's a witch, and has Mike
bury him in rocks; by the end he's convinced he's a frog.
Segment Four: Servo's deadly grandma tries to kill Mike with
Segment Five: Crow sells his soul, by mistake, to "Stan," an
accountant, who resells it to Citicorp. In the castle,
Steffi reads to Brain Guy and disciplines Bobo. "No! No
Stinger: Melissa: "This is where the fish lives."
to the delight of a handful of people around the globe, this
movie treated us to a repeat appearance by one Robert
Easton. Yes, Robert Easton, who played the creepy farmer in
Invasion. You'll recall him by
repeating to yourself, "You been the hittin' the booze
In this movie, he's the ringleader of the witch-burning
Interesting fellow, this Robert Easton. He's been a
Hollywood dialect coach for years, and in fact was a guest
several times on The Tonight
Show, during the Johnny Carson
years, showing off his skill at dialects. He's been in some
real movies, too, like Working
Girl and Primary Colors,
in which he played John Travolta's doctor.
I like this Robert Easton. I thought he was really good in
Invasion. Even when the spider
was stuffing him up his butt, he played the role
convincingly. -- Paul Chaplin.
