Synopsis:
A couple in financial difficulty recall a time when they picked up a jade statue in Hong Kong. The wife reads the text at the base of the statue that says it grants three wishes and she wishes for money. The husband remembers a story he once read called 'The Monkey's Paw' and tells her not to wish, but it's too late. He gets a call from his lawyer advising him to drive into town, which he does, and gets into a fatal accident which mangles his body and pays off life insurance to the wife. She hasn't read the story, so she asks the man who informs her of the insurance payout about it. He tells her, whatever you do, don't wish for your husband back as he will be mangled. She says she won't make the same mistake and wishes him back before the accident. Men bring in the casket and she gets her wish, but he is still dead, as he died of a heart attack moments before the accident. The distraught wife uses her last wish to wish her husband alive but he writhes in pain because his blood has been replaced with formaldehyde. She tries shooting him a rifle but it doesn't kill him so she grabs a craving knife and shops him up into tiny little pieces, but the pieces still pulse with life.

Synopsis:
Zachary was the undertaker in town and was at the door of an apartment, whose tenant had called him. As he entered, the odor of incense was almost over-powering as the person inside said to keep the light off. He informs Boxer that he visited his doctor not long back and was told he had some sort of mental problem that he needed professional help with. And the psychiatrist inform this man he had schizophrenia and needed therapy on a regular basis. Even with this, the man's spells caused him to do things he normally never would, as his dark side became more and more predominant. Then it happened....he went in for his normal session, and, an instant later, saw the psychiatrist's mutilated body lying at his feet. He decided to leave the country for Haiti, went to see a voodoo witch doctor and asked him to destroy his evil half. The witch doctor created a doll....half evil and half good, and stuck a pin through the evil half and told the man it had been destroyed. As the man finishes the story, and turns on the light, he tells Boxer the reason why he was called: to embalm his rotting, evil half of his body!
