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.)

That's the one. I must admit one of my favourite episodes.

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 ?.
