Tales From the Darkside
The pilot episode for a anthology series of suspense stories. The pilot, "Trick or Treat," tells the story of Gordon Hackles, a malevolent shopkeeper to whom most of the townspeople owe money. As is his tradition on Halloween, Hackles invites the children of the parents who owe him money to his house to search for their parents' I.O.U.'s--but also to scare the children to death.
