The best episode of the series!!
31 March 2007 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

Stars: Joe Pantaliano, Robert Wuhl, Kathleen York, Gustav Vintas.

If you want to see the show that really defines great "Tales from the Crypt" this is it. The episode is about a bum (Pantoliano) who is paid by Dr. Emil Manfried (Vintas) to have a cats gland put in his head. The result, he has 9 lives and becomes a circus performer where the audience gets to watch and participate in his deaths. The acting in this was so fantastic! Joey Pants was great as Ulric the undying, Kathleen York gave a great over the top performance, which worked considering everything was over the top. But, the best performer in this was definitely Robert Wuhl who was absolutely hysterical as the ringmaster always changing his mustache, putting on a fake happy face to get an audience. This story could probably fit in to an hour easily and not seem too long, but the way it's done, it is extremely fast paced with excellent direction by Richard Donner (Lethal Weapon). I highly recommend you see this excellent Crypt entry. Its great!

My rating:****/****. 28 mins. Not rated, contains strong violence, language (f-bombs).
