This was great!
15 October 2006 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I was watching TV in midnight here in Finland, and I decide to watch this episode of Tales from the Crypt. Before of that I hadn't seen any other episode.

So, I started watching, and after intro and those puppets, "Deadline" started. It was directed in very good way, and it was a surprise that Walter Hill was the director. Very good director indeed.

I think this show is going to be in future too only a cult classic, not "real" classic. Some peoples loves the show, some doesn't watch it because they don't know what it is. I didn't, but I did watch it, and I liked it.

8/10
