Storyline

In an Australian version of Tales Of The Unexpected, Bryan Brown introduces stories of the bizarre and the supernatural. Sometimes serious, often comical, but always with a twist at the end of the story. Such as the struggling artist with the mobile phone who goes to great lengths to steal the body of a well-known businessman in order to paint his posthumous portrait, only to meet his retribution when he is buried alive in his place with his phone, his attempts to call for help unheard by his interrer, who's listening to his walkman.

Not as twisted as some...
19 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

Twisted Tales of the Unexpected from the Outer Limits of the Twilight Zone - they are all much the same. Well, this lot was all "twisted" as in the tale had a "twist". Despite how some of them started, they all had down-to-earth explanations: no aliens, time travel, no SF.

The first episode shown was pretty spectacular. A beautiful blonde girl wants her brother murdered. Then here's the twist: he's in a wheelchair and she wants to put him out of his misery humanely. The contract killer refuses. Then it turns out that they've all met before.

Now, all of you wannabe Sherlock Holmeses out there who say that these shows are so predictable: what happens now? Go ahead - make my day.

They were all pretty good. Some better than others. But all a reasonably interesting passing of half an hour. Sometimes you don't need to ask for more.
