Synopsis for "Puglyon's Crypt"
A man with a fear of premature burial kicks some gypsy squatters out of his warehouse telling them to find somewhere else to stay for the winter. Since his father used to punish him by locking him in the family crypt overnight, he decides to have his casket built with a ventilation pipe and a door which opens from the inside out. After the specifications are complete, his vehicle gets into an accident wherein a small piece of window glass in his brain causes a temporary paralysis long enough for him to be considered dead and interred in his casket. When the paralysis wears off he realizes that the air is getting thin, unaware that snow has clogged the ventilation pipe. He tries to open the door and shout over the noise he hears coming from beyond it, but the door won't budge and he collapses from lack of air. The gypsies have taken refuge in the family crypt and one of them is leaning against the door playing his music.
