As advertised in the promo, this week's episode of "Count Floyd's Monster Chiller Horror Theater" is being telecast in 3-D! (Ur-reet, ur-reet, ur-reet, ur-reet!) Fear will freeze you as Dr. Tongue (John Candy) plays with his paddleball -- in 3-D! (Ur-reet, ur-reet, ur-reet, ur-reet!) While his hunchbacked assistant, played by Woody Tobias Jr. (actually Eugene Levy), salivates with excitement, and various unknown starlets scream in terror!! On a less horrifying scale, "Sunrise Semester" offers tips on writing backwards, and the hero of "Mick Mason: Police Photographer" (played by Levy) exhorts corpses to "Work with me! Work with me!" And everyone plays dual roles in the heart-tugging melodrama "I Cry Each Day I Die." Oops, almost forgot to mention "SCTV Boogies," the rock-n-rolling precursor to "Mel's Rock Pile," hosted by Mel Slirrup (Eugene Levy again!)
