1. The Angel of Death

All the patients at a certain room in a hospital die from what appear to be natural causes.

2. Meat

A psychopatic man becomes obsessed with watching a wealthy and obese woman eat. Meanwhile, the woman's husband is planning on murdering her. The man's old mother is equally obese and unable to move because of her age. She also seems unable to speak. The man secretly films the woman eating with a home camera, saving a large number of tapes of her eating different meals. One night, the husband is going out to a meeting and puts poison into the woman's juice. After he leaves, the man enters the house and kills the woman. In the episode's gruesome finale, the man stocks up the woman's flesh in his fridge, then serves some of it to his mother who happily eats it unaware of the dish's origin. The man then prepares a meal for two from the woman's meat and while having one for himself serves the other to a television set showing the woman eat. He then pretends he is having dinner with the woman, before he and his mother succumb to the poison still being in the woman's system at the time of her death.
