Be careful when wishing for love, you might just get it!
23 March 2007 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

"Loved To Death" is without a doubt one of the best crypt episodes, due to it's script and great plot twist at the end. You have Andrew McCarthy as a young struggling wannabe screenwriter, who stays alone in an apartment building trying to write the right script and daydream about the right female for his life. One day upon noticing a beautiful older and sexy female played by Mariel Hemingway, that then becomes his fantasy and dream. And that scene of Mariel taking off her strapless bra and showing a little cleavage was just fantastic! Only later the McCarthy character finds that his mature fantasy female is a snobbish out of work actress who has no interest in him! Help is on the way when a special love potion is obtained from the apartment building manager an old and mysterious man played just great by David Hemmings who's so spooky in his role! So when the next encounter starts the love potion works in the drink only to change the Hemingway's characters mind of choice as it's not only love, but nonstop sex for both! This is just to much to handle so the only escape route is a death love potion, but a critical mistake is made in the end, as this love can't be gotten rid of! Overall one of the best episodes of tales, the plot is well done and entertaining and it's ends with a good twist that proves be careful what you wish for you might just get it!
