It is rare that Mystery Theater actually chills you to the bone with fear. But MT does do creepy excellently. Such is the case for "Is the Lady Dead?" An excellent listen while not sewing up the ending. It leaves the conclusion up to the listener. 4 stars.

A young executive millionare travels to Europe and takes a wife. Soon, his wife dies and he brings her back in his mind.

A hard-driven business tycoon finds the love of his life while on a trip to Europe and they marry after only one week together. Shortly thereafter she dies but not before he promises to bring her back from the dead. Genre: Occult/Drama

A world-traveling businessman marries a woman after a whirlwind romance in Europe. It becomes apparent that she has had a very unhappy life to that point and, while they don’t really know much about each other, they are very much in love. The complicating factor is that the woman falls gravely ill and the husband speculates that just as people can die from grief, it may be possible that she is dying of happiness. On her deathbed she pleads with him to bring her back from the dead in order to continue their happy life together. What he does to fulfill her wish seems to lead him down a path to madness.

After a wealthy industrialist's newlywed bride fall prey to a sudden fatal illness, he insists that his love has returned her from the dead, and his life begins to unravel as he tries desperately to keep her from slipping back to the Other Side.

I liked this episode, especially how EG left the episode on how the ring may have shown up.
