Cathy says early on that Charlie is so big that he "probably has his own ZIP code." ZIP codes weren't introduced until 1963, yet the episode takes place in 1950. See more »

Quotes

Crypt Keeper: I look into the future, my darlings... and for you, I see something... grotesque. It will sicken and disgust you! It's me!
[laughs maniacally]
Crypt Keeper: Tonight's tale is a sickening stab at suspense, about a gold digger who wanted big bucks to buy baubles and bangles. Look out, Cathy! I see you might just buy the big one!

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.
