A bloody good shout.
23 September 2011 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

More comedic than scary or gory, this particular tale from the crypt benefits from a great cast all having fun and a situation that raises genuine smiles as we get a modern riff on "The Tell-Tale Heart".

Lee Arenberg stars as Marty Slash, a greedy rock promoter who plans to steal away with all of the charity money raised at a gig he has organised. He finds himself seriously hindered in this endeavour by the voice of his conscience (Sam Kinison). And his conscience is LOUD!!

Directed by Jeffrey Price, who co-wrote the screenplay with Peter S. Seaman, this episode is certainly one of the better humorous episodes from the show that I can think of. Arenberg puts a lot of physicality into his performance while Kinison goes on as loudly as he so often could. With Katey Sagal and Iggy Pop also taking part in the fun, this is simple and effective fun.

You may want to turn the volume down slightly when you watch it but you will at least want to watch it.
