Storyline

Liz is a beautiful, but loose, bar waitress who marries Steve Dixon, the rich owner of a lumber camp. It Isn't a difficult decision as he's able to offer her a fairly comfortable life. But Steve has a violent jealous streak, not liking the attention she get's from his 'salt of the earth' employees. Things begin to turn sour, particularly in the bedroom, and Liz get's bored very quickly. But when the handsome young Ted turns up at their door looking for a job, the promiscuous seductress sets her sights on relieving her boredom. Written by Robert McElwaine

Quotes

Liz Kelly-Dixon: Going somewhere?
[narrating]
Liz Kelly-Dixon: He was so easy. Men always are. Even the ones who always want to be on top just love being seduced.
[Spoken]
Liz Kelly-Dixon: Is it something I said or did? You know, Ted, when my husband found that glove, I just didn't know what to tell him. I swore to God I didn't know anything. But he just wouldn't believe me.
Ted: Mrs. Dixon, please.
Liz Kelly-Dixon: Come on Ted, I'm not asking for much. If I have to, I'll tell him whose glove it is. Is that what you want?

Brion James lumberjack style!
9 March 2006 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

Brion James was a terrific but criminally underrated B-movie actor who sadly passed away in 1999, due to a heart attack. Because of his barbaric looks and imposing voice, James was frequently cast as the villain or homicidal maniac in second-class horror and action vehicles like "House 3", "Tango & Cash." or "Nature of the Beast" and his characters usually died in the most painful ways imaginable. It was to be expected that he would turn up in a "Tales from the Crypt"-episode sooner or later and that he would play the ultimate bastard! In this tale directed by "Highlander's Russell Mulcahy, James is downright fantastic as the robust and pathologically jealous leader of a lumberjack company. When he returns from a vacation as a married man, Steve Dixon violently tries to keep away all his employers from his sexy wife Liz. But the young bride is a vicious shrew herself, as she deliberately seduces a new and handsome workman just to bring some excitement in her dull life. The setting of one incredibly sexy girl (Michelle Johnson, who goes topless!) among a troop of rough macho men works very effectively and the screenplay foresees an exact right amount of black humor. The over-the-top gross ending is simply hilarious! Mucho recommended!
