Very dull
17 June 2015 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

MISS MAY DUSA is one of the least interesting of all the TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE episode. It's a shame because the execution of the story is actually pretty decent with plenty of atmosphere building and effective music. Even good use is made of a saxophone. As a two-hander set in a single location it's an episode which makes the best use of its resources to boot.

A guy who makes a living playing the saxophone is holed up in a deserted subway station with a young woman who's harbouring a dark secret: she's responsible for a number of accidental deaths, and there's worse to come. It's an intriguing set-up, but MISS MAY DUSA goes nowhere and does nothing with that premise; the script is very dull. It's little surprise that neither actor went on to anything.
