Twisted Tales: Love Gods
14 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

SPOILER: This was BRILLIANT! I was only fifteen when I first saw it and it scared the living daylights out of me! Here's what it's about: Jack (Craig Kellly) and Stevie (Steve John Sheperd) are two despicable twenty-somethings who rip off unhappy but wealthy women by causing them shame for two-timing. They get their comeuppance when they try to pull one off on forty-nine-year-old Alison (Julie.T.Wallace), a mysterious lady from the East. She has a Faberge egg that they want to screw her out of, but while Stevie is making love with her after she claims to fancy him, he jumps out of his skin as he suddenly sees a shrivelled yellow face grinning at him! He tells her she looked a couple of centuries older than forty-nine, then decides he must be seeing things. Jack has got close to her too, so they decide to steal her egg by having Stevie rush in on her and Jack when they are in bed and then starting a fight in which one of them can make off with it. However, it all goes horribly wrong when Stevie goes into Alison's house to discover she is on her own- he cannot find Jack! She asks him to stay for champagne, but he panics and tells her he "has to dash". She then grabs him and kisses him, after which he passes out. The final shot shows her feeding what is presumably Jack's kidney to her dog and leaving the house with Stevie suffocating to death in a clothes bag! This is a must for anyone who likes Roald Dahl's adult work as it definitely felt like something out of KISS, KISS. Undoubtedly the best episode in the series. Rating 4.5 out of 5.
