How a King gave three riddles to an Abbot and how the Abbot was saved by the Joker.
Once upon a time, when a King was hitting the road, he came along a monastery where he saw a placard with this message: “Don't Worry! Be Happy! And do it here, please!”
The King could not believe his eyes. He always had a head full of worry, why would this not be the same for the fathers of the monastery? So, the King said he wanted to speak to the Abbot, and when the Abbot appeared, the King told him why he could not be very amused with the message on the placard.
“But it is true!” the Abbot said. “We all live here without any worries!”
“True or not,” the King said, "we will not tolerate this! You need to have a head full of worries, like we do! That's why we will give you three riddles… And we want to hear your answers… tomorrow morning!”
The King asked the Abbot these three questions:
1. How deep is the sea?
2. How much dog tails do you need to measure the distance from here to the sun?
3. What will we think about at the time when your third answer is required?

Synopsis 'The City of the Dead / Horror Hotel':
In 1692 witch hunting and persecution is at its terrifying height. In the small town of Whitewood, Massachusetts, Elizabeth Selwyn is accused of being a witch in league with the devil. She is put to the stake and burned alive, whilst her accomplice and lover Jethro stands among the Puritans impassively watching proceedings. As the flames engulf Selwyn’s body, her tortured soul calls upon the devil to curse the town and rain terror and death on the villagers who persecuted her.
Hundreds of years later, sinister history Professor Driscoll (Christopher Lee) recommends his Massachusetts hometown of Whitewood as a suitable place for the headstrong college student Nan Barlow (Venetia Stevenson) to research her term paper on the occult. Full of enthusiasm she checks into the creepy Ravens Inn Hotel which, unbeknown to Nan is located on the exact spot that the burnings took place many years before. The inn owner, Mrs. Newlis (Patricia Jessel) is in fact the reincarnated 268-year old witch Elizabeth Selwyn - Selwyn sold her soul to the Devil in order to return as the undead after being burned at the stake. The fog-engulfed town is her modern coven held in the grip of sacrificial terror, with the only exceptions being blind Reverend Russell (Norman MacCowan) and his granddaughter Patricia (Betta St. John).
Nan Barlow unfortunately arrives in the rundown town on Candlemass Eve, the annual human sacrifice, and when she fails to return from her visit, Nan’s brother Richard travels to the town trapped in time to search for her. Bookstore owner Patricia Russell helps him in trying to find out what happened, and together they discover satanic sacrifices and all sorts of evil goings-on.
