Synopsis

Dramatization based on two short stories: "Chattery Teeth" by Stephen King and "The Body Politic" by Clive Barker. A woman stranded on a desert highway in a broken down car is approached by an odd-looking stranger driving a Rolls Royce and pulling an Airstream trailer. Inside his trailer, Aaron Quicksilver regales her with an eerie story ("Chattery Teeth") about a traveling salesman, a hitchhiker and a broken set of dime store novelty false teeth, the kind with feet. At a carnival where Quicksilver exhibits his collection of horrors, he tells another tale to a pickpocket who has ducked inside his tent to elude the police. In this story ("The Body Politic"), a plastic surgeon discovers that his hands have developed a mind of their own and are plotting a revolt.
