Cathy Marno: Sally, Madame Vorma was a total waste of time. She was a real quack. She went into this bizarro act and started out that Clayton was gonna fire me today. I told her that asshole's not even in town.

The Moore no merrier.
1 July 2011 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Season two of Tales From The Crypt kicks off with something suitably enjoyable, twisted and star-powered.

Demi Moore is the gal who wants to find true love with the right man . . . . . . . . and his wallet. Overcoming her physical repulsion, she gets together with Charlie (Jeffrey Tambor) after following the advice of a medium who tells her that she will meet a man who will inherit a lot of money but die soon after. Surely she can stick things out until then, right?

Directed by Howard Deutch (who also directed the "Only Sin Deep" episode), "Dead Right" isn't all that hard to predict but that doesn't make it any less fun. Moore is just fine as the gold-digging beauty and Tambor is fantastic as the supersized Charlie. Natalia Nogulich is also a lot of fun as the psychic woman who is never wrong. Ever.

Overall, a great start to the second season.
