Episode Guide

NOTE: This is as complete as I could make it.  It is not your
typical episode guide, because there was so little press on
this show, that for a while, I wasn't sure it actually
existed.  Anyone who has an addition or correction, please
contact me at

Special thanks goes to PH0EBUS, SciNut, Presti, and Jeff
Toschlog for helping me compile this list.  I couldn't have
done it without you!



     "Lewis Vendredi made a deal with the devil, to sell
cursed antiques.  But he broke the pact, and it cost him his
soul.  His niece Micki, and her cousin Ryan, have inherited
the store, and with it, the curse.  Now, they must get
everything back, and the real terror begins."
     This short narrative appeared at the beginning of
certain episodes, depending which station was broadcasting
the show.  It just set up the basic plot, and showed scenes

     This is the pilot episode.  We see how Lewis Vendredi
breaks his pact with Satan to sell cursed antiques.  Micki,
Ryan and Jack meet for the first time.  We find out that
Micki is engaged to a yuppie lawyer.  She is also a bit of a
snob, very spoiled.  At first she is disgusted with Ryan.
They meet Jack, who broke into the shop to try to collect
money from Lewis, unaware dude is dead.  Jack was the one who
selected the name "Curious Goods."  Oh yeah, the curse.  A
little girl receives a doll that kills anyone who refuses to
do what the girl wants.  In return, the girl obviously
doesn't have to put up with these people.  Example: she kills
her step-mother who tries to take the doll.
     Status: Recovered and locked in the vault.

1.2  Title: "The Poison Pen"

     Writer: Durnford King
     Director: Timothy Bond

     Micki, Ryan, and Jack masquerade as monks to sneak into a monestary and
recover a quill pen being used by one of the brothers, nicknamed "The Oracle
of Death."  The brother writes out a prophecy with the pen, stating that
someone is to die, and then has only to fill in the name.  Jack names Micki
and Ryan brothers Simon and Mathew, and they are named in a prophecy, but no
harm comes to them because they are not the true brothers.  Instead, the real
brothers Simon and Mathew, in a European monestary, are killed.  The brother
who has the pen writes out a prophecy, but before he can fill in the names,
Jack points out that the paper he wrote the prophecy on is the invoice he
signed when he purchased the pen from Lewis.  A guillotine blade run amuck
kills him.

                 Dennis Fitzgerald........ Harold
     This one was written by a friend of mine, so I have to
say it was good :).  Actually, it really was good.  An ugly
college man, who works cleaning up in an exclusive frat
house, finds a Cupid statue in one of the frat man's room.
When pointed at someone of the opposite sex, a tiny arrow
would hit that person, causing them to fall in love with the
owner.  The catch?  The owner must kill their "new love"
after they make love.  Micki and Ryan meet a young woman with
whom the Cupid's owner is obsessed.  She gets shot with the
arrow, but Micki overhears her conversation with the ugly
guy, and she goes in the girl's place.  Ryan bursts in just
as Micki's cover is blown.  But then the guy shoots Micki
with the arrow.
     Status:  Micki says that she loves the ugly guy, but a
pipe bursts and knocks Micki out.  Ryan chases the guy into

                 Lisa Jacob............... Young girl
     An old woman recieves a teacup with a design of ivy
around the rim.  The ivy is "swapper's ivy," meaning that by
killing someone with the cup, you would recieve a wish.  The
old lady wishes herself to be a young rock singer.  The woman
kills homeless living in the park by offering them some tea
in the cup.  The ivy design becomes real (through the wonders

                 Victoria Deslaurier...... Evil Greta
     Jack, Micki and Ryan have a Halloween party.  A party guest plays with a
crystal ball and accidently calls up the spirit of Uncle Lewis.  Uncle Lewis
pretending to be sorry for all that he has done convinces the gullible Micki
and Ryan to give him the Amulet of Zohar.  Once he has the amulet, he will
become alive if he can find a corpse before dawn.  Jack, Micki and Ryan

                 Robert Silverman......... Jerry Scott
     A phony faith healer obtains a white glove that has the power to
heal a sick person.  However, the afflictions that he heals in other
people begin to effect him so he must find a victim to touch with the
glove.  Touching someone transfers all the sickness to the victim's
body.  Somehow in the end, Jerry, a friend of Jack's, who has made a career
out of debunking faith healers and is terminally ill, locks the healer in a
car so that he can get the glove and heal himself.  However, he has no one to
transfer the sickness to, so he dies.  Jack is depressed about this (and the
fact that Jerry held Jack hostage to kill later) and he and Micki exchange
some very cruel words.  Ryan breaks it up before too much is said, and Micki
and Jack gang up (jokingly) on Ryan.
     Status:  Glove recovered and returned to the vault.

     The broach was used on a black velvet cape worn by a `vampire' who
becomes irresistable to women.  When you put blood on the broach, it took you
back in time to England.  Micki and Ryan got sucked into the curse and helped
Abraham hunt down the guy with the broach.  Abraham is skeptical about Micki
and Ryan's vampire tale.  After his wife is killed by a vampire, he
refuses to see them again.  When Micki and Ryan go out to hunt the
vampire, they are cornered by him, and Micki falls under his spell.  The
vampire begins to choke Ryan, but Bram comes up and stabs the vampire.
Micki and Ryan use their own blood to get back home.

astrology convention, leaving Micki in the store alone, until
one of her friends leaves her son, Richie, there to be
babysat.  Meanwhile, Jonah and a henchman had followed them
back to the store, and after killing a phone repairman, the

basement, where they try to break into the vault.  Richie
discovers their true intentions, and the killers hold Micki
and the boy hostage while they try to open the vault.  She fools them and
gets the lantern out of the vault.  I call Jonah "Dude that won't die"
Because he got hit in the head with a heavy piece of iron, was electrocuted,
hit on the head again with a waffle iron, fell over the second story balcony,
and STILL lived.  Micki had to kill him by reflecting the lantern beam at

     An unpopular, homely girl, who lives in the shadow of
her beautiful and popular older sister, gets a hold of this
compact.  When she flashes it in a boy's eyes, they fall
madly, hopelessly in love with her.  They do anything she
wants, but as soon as they tell her they love her, she must
kill them.  She curses her sisters boyfriend the night of the
prom, and hangs her from the lighting fixture, allowing a
chair to brush just under her toes to give her a fair chance
at living.
     Status: Jack came in just as the chair slipped from
under the girl's feet, saving her.  The younger sister and
her sister's boyfriend ended up dancing on the roof,
culminating in the both of them committing suicide by
throwing themselves off the roof.  The compact was thrown out
of the girls purse, landing under a bush.  Micki feels
incredibly guilty about not obtaining this object.

     A man sentenced to death by electrocution was pronounced
dead, but somehow survived.  He later purchased the electric
chair from Uncle Lewis, changed his identity, and went to
work at a juvenile detention center as a dentist.  He would
kill kids using the chair (disguised as a dentists chair),
then the chair would electrically charge him so he could kill
the people responsible for sentencing him to death.  Micki, Ryan and

     A not-to-bright assistant to a scientist realizes that the chair his
boss has can drain the fluid from the stem of one person's brain and transfer
it into anothers, also transferring intelligence. He  uses it on himself and
the scientist.  He becomes brillant and takes over the research of his former
employer.  His research involves teaching a monkey brain that kept in fluid
and connected to a computer, to speak.  He continues to use the chair on
visiting scientists and eventually on a rekindled love interest of Jacks.
While Jack, Micki, and Ryan are struggling with this man, he falls into the
chair and the chair stabs him and the monkey brain.  The fluid from the
monkey brain is transferred to him.

                 Bernard Behrens.......... Inquisitor Holmes
     The quilt allows whoever sleeps under it to have dreams,
or nightmares, usually about murder, and that dream will come
true.  A plain woman belonging to a religious group, the
Penitites, (think the Amish or the Kindred from The X-Files)
and she wishes to marry the leader of the group.  She kills
a string of women to whom he had been betrothed to, and
eventually becomes "thy betrothed." She then kills her
husband so that she can have control of the group.
Meanwhile, Ryan falls in love with the leaders daughter, who
is betrothed to someone else.  As Micki is leaving, Ryan says
he is staying.  He is then accused of a murder he didn't
commit.  This was a two-hour movie that I stumbled onto by
accident, but I believe it was also shown as a two-parter.
     Status: After accidently taking the wrong quilt, Micki
gets the correct one, Ryan is acquitted, and returns home.
Micki's anger at him for abandoning her and Jack disappear.

     Micki and Ryan get an answer to a mailer that takes them
to a sea coast town for a foghorn.  The local museum owner
suggest they go to the light house where to former owner of
the foghorn worked.  However, the current lighthouse operator
has been using the foghorn to call an old dead pirate, Angus
McBride who gives him gold for the bodies of the descendants
of the sailors who betrayed him.  The only witness to these
strange rendezvous is the local drunk who nobody believes
except, of course, Micki and Ryan.  The lighthouse operator
becomes enraged when he thinks he has found all the
descendants and is due to the whole treasure but McBride says
"there's one more".  Micki and Ryan have been snooping around
the lighthouse and Micki is caught.  The local museum owner,
who is also a descent, comes to her aide and is killed.  The
lighthouse operator locks Micki in the lighthouse and takes
the body to McBride but McBride says again "there is one
more" and points to him.  Realizing that he means that he is
a descendent he runs for the lighthouse and locks himself
inside.  The door explodes and McBride kills him with his
hook and takes him away.

ghost ship sailing away with McBride and his new crew.

takes credit for the invention, and uses the pipe to kill nosey co-
workers.  Micki begins to suspect that he owns a cursed object.  Ryan's
father catches her snooping and uses the pipe on her.  By this time Ryan
has found out and is looking for them.  Threatening his father with a

the Titanic the night it sank.  Her child floated to safety
in this cradle.  The current owners had to kill seven people
in water in order to keep their dying baby healthy.  The baby
could not be removed from the cradle until all seven were
dead, and there was a time limit the deaths had to occur in.

     While Micki, Ryan, and Jack are having a little
celebration to all the objects they have successfully
obtained, a strange man brings in a small urn wrapped in
tattered shrouds.  While Micki and Ryan put it in the vault,
The top comes open, and strange, green gas leaks out.  The
vault seals them in, but Jack get's there just in time to see
what's happening, before the door shuts.  Jack calls Rashid,
who comes over to help.  We find out that, essentially, what
Micki and Ryan are experiencing is a "death dream." The urn
had been used to preserve internal organs of mummys.  the
death dream causes the victim to relive the most terrifying
experiences of their life over and over, until their hearts
literally burst of fear.  This is one of those usually cheesy
flashback episodes, but I feel it is skillfully stitched
together, and NOT cheesy.  Clips include scenes from "The
Inheritance", "Cupid's Quiver", "Scarecrow", "Tattoo",
"Doctor Jack", "Tales of the Undead", and "The Baron's
Bride".  We also find out about Jack's son, who died when he
was only 10 or 12 years old.
     Status: Micki and Ryan are saved, by having Jack drink a
potion and being sent into Micki and Ryan's "dream plane,"

entering a young, mentally disturbed girl's dream plane in

Ryan get trapped in Lewis' old house, with a couple of
convicts (Nothing big, just robbery), and Jack, with the help
of his close friend Rashid, get them out.

     A young doctor who works in a mental hospital is trying
to cure her patients and receive fame, her only goal.  She
does this by using an antique radio, on that broadcasts
special messages.  When leaving this radio in the room of a
patient, always one of her colleagues, patients' room, it
broadcasts a terrible fate, killing people by their greatest
phobia.  For example, a woman is deathly afraid of snakes.
When the radio was left in her room, it broadcast the fact
that thousands of snakes were loose inside the hospital, when
in reality, the snakes were just a figment of the woman's
imagination.  She essentially died of fright.  The radio then
tells of how the doctor was able to cure won of her own
criminally insane patients.  Did that make any sense?
     Status: Ryan was captured while trying to break into the
heavily secured hospital, and was nearly killed.  Micki was
attacked by a rapist\murderer, and the doctors newest case,
although Micki was okay.  The radio was returned, and the

     This was a very emotional episode.  I could only bear to
watch it once.  A religious cult has a ram's head coin that
has the power to give and take life.  When flipped, it lands
in front of its victim, heads up.  It then shoots up,
branding a ram's head into its victims forehead, instantly
killing you.  Then, by placing the coin on the forehead of
the dead, they will rise again.  The soul, the personality of
the person you killed would be transferred into the person
you revive.  The reason I find it so emotional is that Micki
is spying on the cult and caught.  The leader flips the coin,
and yes, Micki *is* dead, for a good twenty minutes of the
episode :(.
     Status:  Ryan and Jack trick the cult into believing
that Micki is the chosen one they are to revive by covering
her in clay and putting her in the older corpses place.
Micki comes back as herself, and Ryan gets the coin, but the
temple begins to crumble and on the way out, the coin is
dropped.  All of the cult members are killed, and the coin is
buried under tons of rumble assumingly safe....

     Lewis sold a cursed violin to a world renowned concert
violinist, Janos Corda.  A few months later, Corda died in a
car accident.  Every year, around the anniversary of his
death, a new Corda recording is put out, from alleged "lost
recordings."  Micki drags Ryan to the symphony, where he
falls for the second chair violinist, Leslie, Corda's widow.
There have also been murders around the concert hall lately.
Micki and Jack become convinced that Leslie is the one with
the violin, the one committing the murders.  Micki even goes
so far as to search Leslie's apartment.  But Corda didn't
really die in that car crash.  He survived, but not without
becoming horribly disfigured, his hands twisted so that he
would never play again.  Murdering people with the violin bow
fixes his hands temporarily, so that he may record a new
song.  Leslie finds out, and is horrified when she learns.
Corda forces her to help him record his newest masterpiece.  Leslie dies
saving Ryan who had fallen under Corda's spell.  Ryan awakens from his
trance and chases Corda through the rafters of the symphony hall.
Corda, bereaved by Leslie's death, leaps to his own death.
Think _Phantom of the Opera_ meets the symphony.
     Status:  The violin is returned, but I believe both
Corda and Leslie were killed.

     The shop loans some props to a movie, and Micki falls
for the handsome lead.  It turns out that he has a cursed
make-up case.  He must kill someone, and mix their blood with
the make up.  The actor is horribly disfigured, and the
bloody make-up gives his face a smooth, perfect look.  Micki
goes on a weekend trip with him, and, in his psychotic state,
mistakes her for a woman who once broke his heart, whom he
subsequently killed.  Not able to find a victim, the actor turned back
into the disfigured monster that he once was.  He made Micki tell him
that she loved him and kiss him to prove her love.  He breaks down and
cries.  Jack and Ryan break in as Micki is holding and comforting him.

     This episode was a bit confusing.  In it, a wax sculptor
tours with a carnival, displaying his scenes of real-life
horror, such as Ted Bundy, Jack the Ripper, and Lizzie
Borden.  His beautiful young wife (with whom Ryan has fallen
for -- you know right off that she's doomed), suffers from
severe migraines, that occasionally cause her to pass out.
However, the headaches stop when someone is murdered.  A
Louie the XIV handkerchief, when placed on a wax sculpture,
causes the statue to come alive and kill in order to save the
young woman.
     Status: As it turns out, the wife is really Lizzie
Borden, in a sense.  The wife is wax, and she is the one in
the wax statue's clothes when the murders occur, by "Lizzie".
Basically, the wife is really a wax statue of Lizzie.  She
melts, and the hankie is recovered.  Did you get any of that?

hospital.  Meanwhile another ventriloquist has gotten a hold
of the dummy.  Ryan convinces the ex-manager of the first
ventriloquist to get the dummy back.  When Ryan goes to meet
the manager later to pick it up, he find a trail of blood to
the refrigerator.  Opening the refrigerator, he finds the
managers head and runs out of the apartment.  Micki and Ryan
figure Micki's friend is in danger so the go to her house
where they find the dummy and the new ventriloquist.  Enough
murders have been completed for the dummy to become alive and
he kills the ventriloquist and goes after Micki's friend.

Mikey's father, Dominic, stops by looking for a present.  He

Deacon, who was the one Mikey's father always compared him to
while verbally abusing him.  Deacon makes Mikey race others

can win the next race.  Micki and Ryan find out about the
chain, and when they chase him in a car to get it, Mikey

in which a bee farmer has a bee hive that turns the bees that
live in it "vampire bees."  They will kill someone by sucking

     An aging model gets a hold of the compact.  She uses it
to kill people, and in return, she receives a little bit more
of her beauty.  By flashing it the victims eyes, and then
looking into the mirror, she can see the persons murder, or,
rather, the disfiguration of their face.  But the longer she
goes without a murder, the older she looks.
     Status: The compact is returned, the model dies of
accelerated aging, and we find out that the compact feeds on
the owners vanity.

                 Camilla Scott............ Linda
     This is one of the most violent episodes.  One station
even ran a "Viewer Discretion" thing before this episode, and
no other.  In it, a scientist is studying a rare childhood
disease called hyperviolence.  He accidently left an infected
needle lying within the reach of his young daughter, and she
contracted the disease.  He is now working fervently to find
a cure, if only because of his own guilt.  He seems to have
found the tiny gland in the human brain that controls our
animal impulses, makes us human, different from the animals.
He is using a silver syringe that once belonged to Jack the
Ripper to extract fluid from this gland from prostitutes, and
injecting it into his daughter, finding a temporary cure.  By
a twisted luck of bad fate, Micki's college friend is
visiting, and she is taken to be the next "donor" (No, she's
not a prostitute).  Micki's search for her friend leads her
to the scientist's lab, and in a dangerous position.
     Status: Micki's friend is dead, but Ryan and Jack save
Micki before she dies, but not before a "specimen" is taken
from her, reverting her to a temporary animal state (she was
okay by the next episode).  The little girl dissolves back
into a hyperviolent state, and kills her father.  The girl is
sent to a mental hospital, and the syringe is returned to the

                 James Purcell............ Macklin
     This was the first object listed in the Manifest, from
the 1919 World Series.  A compulsive gambler found this ring
in his mother's jewelry box.  It had once belonged to his
father, also a gambler, who was in over his head, and was
eventually murdered.  By placing it on someone's finger, the
ring would throw you around the room until you were dead.
The owner would then look into the stone on the ring, and see
the winner of a race or sporting event.  The owner's bookie
didn't trust him, so he got the crap beat out of him.  Twist
ending to this one.
     Status:  Okay, I'm gonna tell you the twist.  Turns out
that mother dearest killed her husband in '82, and then
killed her son in the present, because she couldn't get them
to stop gambling.  The ring was recovered, and Micki and Ryan
didn't call the police on the old lady because she really
wasn't a threat to anyone.

     Guest cast: Zachary Bennett.......... J.B.
                 Keram Malicki-Sanchez.... Ricky
     This was one of the few, if only, episode featuring two
cursed objects.  The episode begins with Ryan trying to
retrieve the Shard of Medusa from a sculptress, but he fails.
The sculptress has her model hold the shard as she draws the
preliminary sketches.  After a while, the shard constricts
the breathing and paralyzes the victim.  The sculptress then
takes the shard and stabs it into her victim, turning her to
stone, and the newest piece of art.  As he and Micki are
about to go and try again, they find Micki's nephew J.B.
literally on her doorstep.  They send J.B.  to the park to
play.  Once there, some older boys tell him that he can join
their group if he goes into an alleged haunted house and
takes a toy.  While there, he hears the voice of Ricky, the
little boy who was murdered a century ago.  The boy is alive,
though, and he and J.B.  become best friends.  Meanwhile,
Micki poses for the sculptress, but as soon as she gets her
hands on the shard, she drops it out the open window to Ryan,
waiting below.  They return to the store, where the
sculptress has a knife to J.B.'s throat, and demands the
shard back.  Ryan gives it to her and she runs.  Later, as
Micki is going through some of Lewis' old letters, she
discovers a couple who desperately wanted a child.  The were
Satanists, and bought a small childs coffin from Lewis.  When
a corpse is placed in it, the deceased returns to the realm
of the living.  However, the newly living child must kill an
adult, otherwise, he will die.  That child was Ricky.
     Status:  Micki arrives at the old hose, to find J.B. in
basement, under collapsed debris.  She runs down to help him,
but Ricky hits her and she falls.  J.B. manages to convince
Ricky that Micki was caring, and Ricky turns back into a
corpse.  The coffin is returned, but the sculptress runs to
Europe with the shard.

     Micki and Ryan are on vacation.  Jack had been having nightmares from
World War II, in which he had been captured, thrown into a concentration
camp, and nearly killed by a man known as "The Butcher," who killed his
victims by strangling them with barbed wire.  But the rest of his battalion
bust the place and save Jack, killing the butcher.  But the Butcher is back,
killing off members of Jacks regiment, using a Swastika amulet.  The Butcher
tracks Jack down to the story, and Jack manages to grab the Swastika.
Without it, the Butcher is powerless.
     Status: Jack manages to kill the Butcher, and the nightmares, and put
the amulet in the vault.

                 Eve Crawford............. Mrs. Burns
                 Tony de Santis........... Roger
     Mesmer was the first hypnotist.  He used the crystal
pendant to hypnotize his patients.  The bauble was stolen
from a jewelry store, but dropped by the crooks, and picked
up by a homely record-store clerk, who was obsessed with a
sexy pop singer, Angelica.  The bauble granted wishes.  You
could hypnotize someone with it, and that person would do
whatever you ask, but you must kill them.  Once dead, the
bauble would grant you any wish, one wish per death.  The
clerk killed three people, and in the process, gained good
looks, all-access concert passes, and the love of Angelica.
But it wasn't enough.  The clerk, now working for Angelica as
a publicist, wanted to *be* Angelica.  At his apartment, he
makes a wish to become Angelica, the two of them melting
together, so the real Angelica turns into a puddle of goo.
The new Angelica goes to her concert, and sings in her place.
Micki and Ryan are at the concert, in the mosh pit, when they
see the bauble around Angelicas neck.  The bauble must be
worn at all times.  If removed, everything goes back to the
way it was before you made any wishes.
     Status:  Micki grabs the bauble as Angelica leans down
to sing to the audience.  After hideously impressive special
effects, "Angelica" turns back into the ugly store-clerk.
The bauble is returned to the vault, but Micki and Ryan can't
help but feel guilty for the death of the pop diva.

                 Carolyn Dunn............. Maya
     Micki receives a mysterious package from Argentina.  In
it is a snowglobe with a model of the Magic Castle, a tourist
trap that Micki lived near when she was young.  When she
gives it a shake, an old boyfriend comes into the store.  He
convinces Micki to go with him on a weekend getaway to a
"B&B" built as an exact replica of the Magic Castle.  One
important detail I had better mention: this ex died a year
ago.  He had sold his soul to Satan, but been killed, and was
now doing a service for Satan to prevent an eternity of pain.
Micki leaves, but then Jack gives the globe a shake.  An old
friend, a monk who had been working in Africa when he was
killed.  He had also made a pact with Satan.  Jack agrees to
go stay with his friend at the "monastery", which turns out
to be the same place Micki went, though Jack doesn't know
this yet.  After they leave, Ryan shakes the globe, and he
barely sets it down before an ex-girlfriend who broke his
heart came in.  She was responsible for the murders of
several elderly people with chronic health problems.  She
committed suicide.  Meanwhile, Jack can see and hear Micki,
but she can't see him.  Jack finds out that she was brought
here to bear Lucifer's child.  Her ex gets her drunk, for you
must accept evil before it can overcome you; unfortunately,
accepting one form of is the same as accepting another.
Ryan's ex betrays Satan, and shows Ryan the way in to the
globe.  He finds Jack, and they devise a plan to drive a
found car to the edge of the snowglobe, causing it to tip off
the desk and fall, break, and release them.
     Status:  Ryan hits the edge just as Micki is trapped and
Lucifer, or his presence is coming towards her.  The
snowglobe falls, and breaks, which I don't understand,
because cursed objects aren't supposed to break.  But our
heros are safe.

2.22 Title: "Wedding Bell Blues"
     Object: Cue-stick
     Mentioned but not seen:  Cursed snowshoes.  Ryan and Jack leave to
retrieve at the beginning of the episode.  Recovered.

                 Steven Monarque.......... Johnny
                 Lolita Davidovitch....... Christy
     Johnny was first introduced in this episode.  At the
beginning, Ryan and Jack are being sent off to look for a
pair of cursed snow shoes.  Ryan mentions that he has a guy,
Johnny, out at the local bars and pool halls looking for a
cursed cue-stick.  Johnny calls for Ryan when he notices a
pool shark running hot and cold with his luck.  You must kill
someone with the stick (most effective is a sharp stab right
through the gut), and in return, you have a short streak of
good luck.  Johnny falls for Micki upon first laying eyes on
her, but drives her away with rude, self-righteous remarks
(my favorites: "Just look for the best looking guy in the
place" and "What, you don't date guys younger than you?") all
of which Micki handles coolly.  He tries to convince her to
let him help her, and she eventually gives in and tells him
about the curses.
     Status:  Turns out the pool players girlfriend, who has
been pressuring him to marry her for months, has been
powering the cue for him, so that he will have enough money
(from tournaments) and confidence to marry her.  He tries to
kill her when he finds out, but not before she comes to the
tournament, in her blood-soaked wedding dress and kills him
with a cake serving knife.  The cue is returned to safety,
and Micki, Ryan, and Jack agree to allow Johnny to help them
in their plight.  One quote that really stuck with me was,
when asked who had the cue, Micki replied "A woman.  A woman
who loved not wisely, but to well."

     Writer: Karen J. Janigan
     Director: Timothy Bond
     Guest cast: Cindy Presto............. Grace Colwell
                 Colm Feor................ Anton Pascola
     "I dedicate my body and soul to the dance."  That was
the phrase uttered by several dancers, in hopes to become the
best.  Anton Pascola, a famous dancer, injured himself and
became a choreographer, who wasn't inspired.  He was
desperately trying to choreograph "Shiva," a beautiful dance
about anguish.  By placing a dancers hand on the symphonia, a
music box that played various metal discs, and having them
repeat the aforementioned phrase, they would dance to the
music of the symphonia.  Their dancing would become so
frenzied that they would die one way or another in the
middle, yet giving Anton a sequence or two of choreography.
Grace, the daughter of one of Jack's close friends, has just
been asked to join Anton's company.  She quickly becomes the
star.  Grace repeats the oath, although she shows no fear.
She knew what she was doing, or at least that is what you are
led to believe.  By opening night, "Shiva" still is missing
the final scene.
     Status: Anton stops the music, brings out the symphonia,
and signs himself over to the dance.  He finishes that dance
with Grace, despite his injury.  The two of them die on
stage, but Anton's greatest dance is complete.  The symphonia
is recovered, but Jack is filled with anguish, and
practically destroy's the store out of anger and fury.

                 James B. Douglas......... Dr. Thomas Lamar
                 Heather Hess............. Sasheena
     The son of an Indian Shaman (Indian witch doctor) is a real doctor, and
does not hold on to any of the family traditions, which his father
dissapproves of.  He does gain possesion of a rattle, in his family for
generations, which was somehow cursed.  By rattling it over someone, it will
kill them, and then can float over a sick person and heal them.  The man's
sister is the next in line to become the Shaman after her father's death.
     Status: The doctor is killed, but the father convinces Micki, Ryan and
Jack to allow him to keep the rattle in the family cave, where he swears it
will be safe.

                 Sean McCann.............. Vince Ventura
     The jacket once belonged to a WW2 Japanese kamikaze
pilot.  The kamikazes actually believed that they were
invisible to their enemy.  By rubbing blood onto this jacket,
you would become invisible for a short period of time.  The
man who has it, Risback, was jailed for masterminding the
robbery of $17 million from an armored truck, and uses it to
escape jail for a short while.  He goes to a storage company,
where Johnny's dad happens to work as the night watchman.
Risback's partners claim the money is here, but they were
lying, trying to cheat him out of the money.  He kills
Johnny's dad, and when the cops come, Johnny is the only one
at the scene, and he is accused of the murder.  Johnny is
sent to the state pen, and Micki, Ryan and Jack try to clear
his name.  Risback kills other prisoners, and escapes,
killing his former partners, taking their safe-deposit box
keys belonging to the box holding the money.
     Status: Johnny and Risback have a fight, ending in
Risback's death.  The warden let's Johnny go, and the jacket
is recovered.

                 Maurice E. Evans......... Brother Gareth
                 Mark Wilson.............. Brother Shannon
     Micki and Jack attend a meeting of white witches in
hopes of getting back what is called the witches ladder.
This is really a special beaded necklace.  Whichever witch,
black or white (I'm speaking in terms of magic, not race) has
the necklace, can then become the most powerful witch on the
Earth.  Towards the end of the meeting, Micki is shaking
hands with the leader of the white coven, and he senses high
levels of latent occult powers in her.  Micki and Jack get
the necklace back, much to the dismay of the leader of a
coven of black witches, lead by a woman who was Lewis' second
in command when he had been leader of the coven.  The woman
comes to the store, flirts with Ryan, "accidently" cutting
him with her pentagram ring, to get a few drops of his blood.
With the blood, now on a handkerchief, the woman returns to
the coven, and they "curse" Ryan, kind of like voodoo.  He
begins to have nightmares, and sleep walks.  The woman is
trying to get him under her control enough for him to get the
necklace, which is locked away in the vault.  Micki and Jack
figure out what has been happening, and use some of the
latent powers Micki has to try to "exorcise" Ryan, after the
white coven leader is horribly killed.
     Status:  Micki and Jack build an alter in the store, and
they are able to protect Ryan from death at the hands of the
black coven.  He sneaks into the black coven and snatches the
necklace.  Micki after placing a "circle of protection"
around Ryan, is drained of her "powers" at least for the
moment.  The necklace is returned, and Ryan is safe.  At
least until the next episode....

                 Tara Meyers.............. Christina
     We find out about the childhood death of Ryan's kid brother, and how
much he blames himself, and that his mother soon left him and his father.
The first part finds Jack in France, at a holy place known as Marie-Mere.
Thousands of people travel there to be healed of life-long
ailments, such as blindness and paralysis.  Asteroth has the
book, and tries to complete a set of Prophecies.  If
completed, Satan will descend to the Earth and take over.
Micki, Ryan, and Johnny go to help, but not before Ryan's
mother shows up.  Ryan is possessed, and carries out murders
for Asteroth.  In trying to retrieve the book, Jack is pushed
over a balcony and is in the hospital with a concussion.
     In the second part, Ryan is transferred back into a
child while trying to save a little girl from Asteroth's
     Status: Ryan, now transferred to exactly how he was when
he was 10, has no knowledge of the future.  He goes home with
his mother, an he is never mentioned again.  There is a
mention of how, when he sees Micki, he makes a comment about
how pretty she is, and how he had a cousin named Micki, with
red hair.  This is a direct contradiction to the first
episode, which is the first time the two of them ever met, or
even knew of the others existence.  Oh, and the book was
returned to the vault, and Satan's wrath was not released
unto the world.

******From this episode on, Johnny is in every episode,
replacing Ryan.

     A close-knit family is hunting down the spirit that killed the son.
Bonnie, the daughter, had been kidnapped by a group of demonolators   (demon
worshippers).  While in this cult, Bonnie had summoned a demon.  Meanwhile,
Micki and Jack discover a cavern under the store when Jack cuts himself in
the vault, and the floor absorbs the blood.  It was used in Satanic rituals,
and led to the streets.  They also find a contract which states that the
caller must kill the demon before the specified date, or the demon lives on
forever.  The demon goes back to the store, and is ultimately killed in time.

     A figure skater is almost gang raped by a group of boys from her school.
She breaks away from them, only to run blindly into traffic, becoming a
quadrapelligic.  At a garage sale, an old man gives her an antique
wheelchair.  When she sits in it, she can seperate her body from her spirit.
Her "spirit" can then go out, like it was a normal person, and kill the boys
who attacked her.  For each boy she kills, she gets a little more of her body
back.  Micki has gone to Europe to help Jack retrieve the Shard of Medusa,
leaving Johnny to fend for himself.  Halfway through the episode, Johnny gets
the chair, but gives it back out of pity.
     Status: Later on, Johnny gets the chair back, but not before the girl,
her mother, and the last boy are all killed.  Johnny, in his rage, takes an
axe to the chair, but it does absolutely nothing.

                 Ed Setrakian........ Gorman
     This episode opens with Micki and Jack going to an
estate auction in hopes of recovering a few objects, leaving
Johnny at the store, mourning the death of his father a few
months ago.  When they return, Johnny is watching a news
segment on unsolved murders where the victims all had a ram's
head emblazoned on their forehead.  Micki freaks and runs
upstairs, leaving behind a worried Jack and bewildered
Johhny.  Jack tells him about Micki's ordeal with the coin.
The next day, the three of them go to the site of the
taxidermy shop in which the coven who had possesion of the
coin was located.  Micki decides she can't stick around and
leaves.  But Johnny later goes to the local police
department, where a few of his dad's friends work.  And
although they don't find out until later, two cops had made a
deal with this dealer for a lot of money, and it ended up
with one of the cops being shot to death, and the drug dealer
killed by the coin.  Johnny finds out about all of this, and
manages to get the coin back about half way through the show.
But this is Johnny we're talking about.  While Micki is
sitting in her room, crying, trembling, and writing a letter
to Ryan, Johnny goes to the graveyard, digs up his father,
and brings him back to life.  But the soul of the last person
to die is transferred into the body of the newly living.
Johnny doesn't know this, and the last person to be killed by
the coin was a prostitute, so his father has a certain
feminine quality to him.  Jack finds out what Johnny did, and
told him to "stay out of their lives."  Of course, to me,
this was good news.  But then the cops get the coin back, and
go to the graveyard to resurrect the drug dealer to find out

and Micki finally gathers up the courage to go (throughout
the entire episode, Micki is convinced that the coin is back
to get her, and is paranoid almost to the point of being

and Johnny, trying to redeem himself, goes to help.  He saves
Micki, who, out of sheer terror, ends up killing the

     Johnny screws up yet again when he purchases a box full
of junk, and then selling a car radio without looking it up
in the manifest.  Of course, it's listed.  A retarded man
bought it for his brother who is trying to fix up a '54 Chevy
that belonged to his racist father, a KKK member.  In 1954,
he had been hanged for killing a black share-cropper.  The
younger brother, also very racist, figures out that if you
wipe blood on the radio, it will take you back to
Mississippi, 1954, and you will remain there until the blood
is wiped off.  The man wants to change the past, and keep his
father from death by killing the black lawyer who pressed

                 Chris Moore.............. Glenda
     A famous director is obsessed with the lead in an old
flick he made, "A Scandalous Woman."  The woman is also his
wife, but a good 50 years younger.  The director takes young
aspiring actresses into his private screening room, and plays
the movie for them.  When he pushes the woman into the beam
of light, they are transferred into the movie, and the woman,
Lili Leta is transferred into real life until the woman dies
at the end, which is when she must go back.  In order to stay
out for good, the real Lili Lita, an old invalid, must be
killed.  Micki comes by questioning about the reel, and is
shoved into the movie.  Lili demands that her older
counterpart be killed, so the director suffocates her.  Lili
leaves for a while, going to a movie theater where they are
playing her film.  She is shocked to see so many fans, and is
angered by the fact that the director, her lover, never told
her.  She goes back to the house, where she discovers the
real Lili is alive ("death scenes were always my forte").
     Status:  The elder Lili is pissed at her hubby, so she
shoots him.  Then, she feels that it is her place to be in
that movie, so she sends herself in, just before Micki dies.
The younger Lili is exited because she thinks she is free
now, but she's not (I'm not sure why) so she dissolves.
Micki, Jack, and Johnny are the only one's left.

     A famous crime biographer has a pen that can inject an
"evil serum" into someone, making them homicidal.  With the

(i.e avoid temptation, are honorable) them.  The first child to master them
inherits the fortune, and the curse.  The monkeys are in the hands of
the powerful Tanaka clan.  Our three heroes are promised the
tea set by an old samauri in return for retrieving the monkey
idols for him.  The elder of the clan has three children, and
are each given an idol as a test to see if they are honorable
enough to inherit the family fortune.  The two sons fail the
test, and are killed by the idols.  The daughter passes the
test, but in order to inherit the fortune (and the curse) she
must kill the father.  She refuses, and kills herself.  The

     There was no actual cursed object in this episode.  However, Micki,
Johnny, and Jack are stargazing in a small costal town when the Midnight
Riders return, a biker gang, like the Hell's Angels.  Except they are all
back from the dead.  Jack's father returns, after a ten-year disappearence,
to tell them about the Midnight Riders, how they had been executed for the
alleged rape of a local woman.  They were back for revenge, for they had
never raped the woman.  She was young, and was pregnant with her boyfriend's

     A newspaper columnist on his way home from a "Columnist
of the Year" party in his honor, accidently hits a little
girl, killing her instantly.  Soon after he finds the girl's
cameo locket dangling from his front fender, calling his
name.  This is where the repetitive part comes in.  The
little girl's silhouette appears in the cameo, urging the
reporter to murder someone else, to replace her soul and
allow her life.  So he kills his dying mother, and the little
girl comes back to life.  But then the silhouette of his
mother appears, with her voice urging him to murder again, to
replace her.  He brought his mother back by killing a
homeless man, only to have his mother die a few hours later.
In an attempt to stop things, the reporter tries to kill the
little girl again.
     Status:  The reporter, unable to take it anymore, kills
himself.  A social worker, and friend of Micki's, sees the
cameo, an brings it into the store, thinking it might be
something valuable.  I found it amusing the way the guy was
losing touch with reality.  Jack and Ryan weren't in this
one, and Micki was only in it a few minutes at the beginning
and end.

     The Ying yang was a little bauble. It allowed the user
to transfer their soul into their victim's body.  Johnny and
Micki recovered the object at the very beginning and on their
way home they run into these two really sick brothers.  (They
learned taxidermy so they could keep their dear departed
family which the older/smarter brother killed.) Anyway,
Johnny and Micki end up running out of gas right in front of
this house (which belongs to the brothers.) but they don't
know that. Anyway, the brothers come home and realize Micki
and Johnny are there. The older one sends the younger to kill
Johnny (so they can have their way with Micki) and in the
process Johnny breaks his leg and kills the younger brother.
Since he can't help Micki in his body, Johnny uses the ying
yang to transfer his soul into the dead brother.
     Status: Johnny saves Micki, kills the other brother and
then gets back into his own body.  The ying yang is returned
to the vault.

wasn't right to kill people to see him, and she insists that she must,
especially since her mom began to drink.  The father appears to Micki, and

     A psychic to the stars has clients dying on her.  She owns a television
set, that she can summons up spirits in.  Later, the spirit goes back through
the TV wires and appears, angrily, on a set, killing the person by
electrocution.  In return, the psychic is granted ten more days of life.  She
has a rare degenerative disease that, before the TV, would have killed her in
a matter of weeks.  A friend of Jacks, and psychic debunker, goes to see
what's up.  He must be killed, for that is the only way the psychic will
continue to recieve ten more days.  His parents haunt him and, after several
close calls, ends up diving off a balcony.
     Status:  The psychic doesn't get her ten more days because Jacks friend

                 Nancy Cser............... Contessa
     A sadistic professor receives a painting from his
father's will.  It is a "Double-Fac" (French for two sided)
which was once painted by the Marquis de Sade in prison.
This was not one of Lewis' cursed objects.  It carried a
curse of it's own.  The professor would kidnap a young woman,
and torture her in his attic, where the painting was located.
The painting had been painted on a blood base, instead of
oil, so to gain entry, you must put blood on your fingertips,
opening a sort of "time portal" into 1790, and the Marquis'
dungeon.  For every person sent through to 1790, another was
admitted back to the present, though they come back dead.
Micki, waiting outside a house across the street from the
professor's, notices him carrying a rolled carpet, and arm
dangling out of one end.  Micki follows them inside, and
becomes involved in a struggle with the professor.  Unknowing
about the paintings powers, she touches it with bloody
fingers and falls through.  Once in 1790, she dresses up as a
French duchess, and feels drawn to the Marquis.  Until she
finds out who he really was.  Then, in an effort to find a
way home, she acts brave to the thought of Marquis' tortures.
Before anything can happen, she writes a letter, explaining
how the painting works in case she doesn't make it.  The
Marquis discovers she is not really the duchess, so he chains
her up and is going to torture her, when Johnny falls though
the painting, freeing Micki, and sending someone back out.
Jack, still in the present, kills the professor, takes the
blood, and smears it on the painting.
     Status: Jack pushes the two dead bodies into the
painting, allowing entrance to the present for Micki and
Johnny.  They make it back alive because they were from the
present, and could handle the journey.  The painting is
returned to the vault, and when down there, Micki notices the
writing box in which she had written the letter, which was
still there.  The box had been cursed, but she didn't kill
anyone for it.
