The Barker story has been reset in America and now features a plastic surgeon whose hands decide to become independent from the rest of his body, while the King story is about a traveling salesman who purchases a pair of steel teeth at a Arizona gas station, which turn out to be lifesavers when he makes the mistake of picking up a nightmarish hitchhiker. 90m/C VHS .
