Synopsis for "The Thing from the Grave"Edit

Bill and Jim are rivals for Laura's affection. Jim proposes and Laura accepts, but she worries about Bill's temper. Bill doesn't like to lose, so he kills Jim and buries his body in the forest and disposes of his car in a sinkhole. He tries to convince Laura that Jim has deserted her, but she refuses to believe it as Jim had told her that if she were ever in trouble, he promised her no matter what, he would help her. Bill gets frustrated and admits to murdering Jim and tells Laura that he'll have to kill her too. He takes her to a cabin in the woods near where he buried Jim, locks her in, and sets fire to it. Her screams literally wake the dead. Jim's corpse pushes free from its grave and after Laura has passed out, walks unfeeling through the flames to pull her out of the burning cabin. After he sets her down safely, he shambles after the hysterical Bill. Bill trips into the unearthed grave, and Jim's corpse pins him down while re-burying the both of them.
