The ultra-creepy landlord
3 February 2006 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

"Loved to Death" is a rather ordinary and anonymous "Tales from the Crypt" episode that nevertheless managed to distinguish itself from the rest thanks to one terrific element, namely David Hemmings' genuinely creepy performance as the odd landlord. Hemmings was a respected actor and well known to horror fans because of his performances in Dario Argento's "Deep Red" and Michelangelo Antonioni's "Blowup", and I'm very pleased to see that he eventually turned up in "Tales from the Crypt". The story is completely set in a Hollywood apartment complex where a naive scriptwriter desperately tries to woo a hot wannabe actress. Hemmings' plays the sadistic landlord who offers the writer an easy solution in the shape of a mysterious love potion. Off course, the potion has some inescapable and deadly side effects… During the first half of the episode, we don't get to see the landlord properly as he watches all his tenants with cameras and talks to them through intercoms. This creates quite an eerie and ominous atmosphere and some parts even suggest that the landlord is no less than the devil. Mariel Hemingway plays the bitchy actress and she does a lovely, albeit gratuitous, nude scene. Tom Mankiewicz who previously made the light-headed cop comedy "Dragnet" directs "Loved to Death".
