Being in love with a model can sometimes be the pits.
22 September 2011 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Writer/director Fred Dekker is responsible for this, his third episode of Tales From The Crypt and a corker of an episode it is.

Teri Hatcher plays a beautiful model being abused by her violent boyfriend (the great Miguel Ferrer) while Kyle Secor is the man who wants to keep her safe at all costs. He will go to great lengths to do so.

Like all of the best tales from the crypt, this one benefits from a mixture of sexiness and nastiness all swirling around a great cast. Hatcher is/was absolutely beautiful so it's no stretch to imagine someone falling in love with her and wanting to protect her, no matter what. And if Miguel Ferrer has ever done anything badly then I haven't found out about it yet.

Not quite up there with the very best of them, this remains a superior tale from our ol' pal The Cryptkeeper.
