lol what a bad episode
21 August 2011 | by ashgameoverSee all my reviews

It was pretty bad but what you come to expect from Tales from the Crypt. Pure camp horror at it's best (which is bad, so bad that it's funny and entertaining). It was very amusing to me. I am a fan of the series but have only seen a few episodes. I sought this particular episode out because Costas Mandylor was in it. His appearance was very brief, but it was nice seeing him in shorts. The actor portraying the main businessman character was great - all of his actions and lines were convincing despite the surreal setting. The cast of this episode as a whole was great, including an odd appearance by Cheech Marin. Another actor that really stood out for his stellar performance was the businessman's right hand man. He was perfect in his delivery. I saved the episode to watch in the future when I have only a little time to kill, so it's definitely worth watching at least once. Have fun!
