Bringing the champ out of retirement
28 July 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Brad Pitt is certainly evil in this episode from Tales From The Crypt, evil but certainly charismatic, not unlike the performance he gave in Kalifornia one of his early successes. No doubt that he would become a big star.

In this episode Pitt is a drag racing legend, but feels his success would not be complete without taking on the more legendary Iceman who disappeared from the scene with a manslaughter charge hanging over him as a result of one of his drag races.

Pitt has tracked him down and it turns out to be a local sheriff played by Raymond J. Barry. To get Barry to meet him, Pitt romances then kidnaps his daughter Michelle Bronson.

Pitt truly dominates this episode and one of them meets a hellish end satisfying the supernatural aspects of this series. A must for fans of Brad Pitt.
