More than just a case of the wedding night jitters.
22 May 2011 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Tom Hollander directs this episode, written by Michael McDowell, about a newlywed couple who have to take shelter on a dark and stormy night.

Amanda Plummer is Peggy, the new bride with something not quite right about her (does Amanda Plummer every play someone who is just normal?), and Stephen Shellen is Charles, the husband who we soon find out has his heart set more on money than love.

It's a little bit cheesy and overly melodramatic but that's not necessarily a bad thing when it's in the context of a tale from the crypt keeper. Greed, and deceit leading from it, is something often punished in these tales and punished with great relish and this episode at least leads to a memorably crazed finale even if it's not one of the very best.
