Hi y'all!

I'm looking for some help in finding pictures/footage of an episode of the tales of the unexpected. It was about a man in a yellow rain coat driving around. That's all I can remember about it, but I'd love to see it again!

Help!

You sure it wasn't Hammer House of Horror, "The Two Faces Of Evil"? Family pick up a mute hitch hiker dressed in yellow oilskins, who then attacks the father with talon-like fingernails, causes a crash, etc.

Episode in entirety here.

You're not thinking of the episode with Rod Taylor and Cyril Cusack are you?

I think one of them has a raincoat, and they do spend almost entirety of the play driving around.

Isn't that the "Fingersmith" one? Cusack is a master pickpocket - based on a Dahl short story from his "Henry Sugar" compendium (a very good read - it was actually part of our O level syllabus.)

There's also an episode in the horror anthology film Creep Show 2 where a guy in a yellow rain coat is the victim of a hit and run and his increasingly mutilated remains stalks the car driver along the journey .. could it be that ?.

Does the man in the oillskins eat royal jelly and turn into a giant bee, then murder someone with a frozen leg of lamb that he then roasts and feeds to the investigating police?

Because I think I've seen that one.

Whatever you're eating before you fall asleep, it's not good for you!

You gave the whole story away!

You're as bad as the guy who told me what happens at the end of Titanic.

No. You're thinking of the Boy who rides up Streatham High Street on the back of a giant turtle and then gets invited to eat himself in a secret exotic diner's club.
