Henry (Harris) is a book editor assigned the task of un-blocking horror author Ian Stark (Shalhoub). Henry is nebbish and a "germophobe"; he always has his antibacterial lotion on hand. Ian is always pulling morbid practical jokes to obstensibly learn how people would react to horrific situations.

And sometimes when it's messy and organic and raw, it's garbage!
