Story 4: "A Fatal Caper"
Teenagers remove a body from a casket in order to dress as a mystically-summoned monster and place one of their own inside as a prank, however, the undertaker is unaware of this and buries the body. When they tell him that he must dig it back up, he refuses because the corpse inside died of leprosy. They all look down in horror at their hands and realize they must have contracted it.
Story 9: "Rx...Death"
A sister worries that her brother is under too much stress and so asks a doctor to write a prescription for some medicine. The doctor does so, but the old-fashioned druggist has only a bottle with the correct label, but after the doctor examines it, he realizes it is not the correct substance. After the contents have been analyzed, the results indicate that for the past several weeks, her brother has been slowly digested alive.
Story 10: "Impending Doom!"
An artist draws a frightened face with a circle around it. Thinking it odd, he goes for a walk encountering a grave-stone cutter who looks exactly like the picture he drew of the man carving a tombstone with his name on it. The stone-cutter laughs it off, but wants to show his wife the picture. It turns out the artist and the stone-cutter's wife were once romantically involved and she wants to be so again. The stone-cutter catches them together and kills the artist, but is facing the hangman's noose for it.
