Blood is thicker than shower water, and it doesn't mix and lather up well with Derma Soap!, 25 July 2008
Author: Danny Blankenship from Petersburg, Virginia

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This "Tales from the Crypt" episode from 1995 wasn't one of the best, yet it wasn't one of the worst either as like many in the series it had it's typical gore, plot twist, and sexy scenes to make it a worthy episode. Veteran actor Bruce Davison stars as the head tycoon of a soap company called Derma and customers have put out word by surveys that they want a new brand and style of soap and he wants to go along with creating a new line. But wait enter his sexy and unfaithful cheating trophy wife(played by gorgeous Cristi Conaway remember her from "Batman Returns" as the "Ice Princess")she offers her ideas and wants to use her thoughts at the convention and tell about a new soap line. And this deadly beauty will do anything to feel right with success and greed, so when her idea is rejected she resorts to desperate measures in fact it's time to mix a little dead blood in with soap chemicals! As this episode ends it proves blood is thicker than water and it shows a bloody shower type revenge that includes soap and water as it lathers up all to a bloody mess. Overall pretty good episode of revenge that shows a cold witch like trophy wife getting what she deserves.
