Trivia

"We have a saying in this business, if your not getting it someone else is." Decent tale from the crypt.

Tales from the Crypt: As Ye Sow starts as rich businessman Leo Burns (Hector Elizondo) hires a downbeat private investigator to spy on his beautiful wife Bridget (Patsy Kensit) who happens to be 24 years his junior. Leo is told that Bridget is having an affair with a local priest named Father John Sejac (John Shea), in a fit of anger & jealously Leo decides to have Sejack killed but has he jumped to the wrong conclusion because, as Leo will discover, jumping to the wrong conclusion can lead to fatal consequences?

This Tales from the Crypt story was episode 2 from season 5, directed by Kyle MacLachlan this is an OK tale but nothing overly special. The script by Ron Finley was based on a story in the 'Shock SuspenStories' comic book & isn't strictly horror, I'd say it's more of a drama thriller with a twist. The limited set of character's are decent as is the dialogue, the story itself is pretty good & the last 5 or so minutes have a nice enough twist which isn't that predictable. There's not really much else to say about As Ye Sow except it's not traditional Tales from the Crypt but it's a decent watch all the same & a painless way to pass 25 odd minutes.

This one looks good as usual with high production values but it's not scary, gory, exciting or particularly memorable save for the twist at the end. The attractive Patsy Kensit does what she does best & looks good while Elizondo puts in a decent performance, ex 60's Batman Adam West makes an appearance in this episode while the always watchable Miguel Ferrer makes his second out of three Tales from the Crypt appearances.

As Ye Sow is far from the best tale from the crypt but it ain't half bad either, not a story which will particularly stick in my memory but not a complete waste of time & worth a watch.
