"I am dead…and this is the man who killed me"
26 April 2006 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

…says Dylan McDermott's character as he stumbles into a police station, dragging a dead body behind him. This is a promising and very sinister intro to a "Tales from the Crypt"-episode that regretfully becomes boring and unoriginal very quick. McDermott plays an obnoxious and greedy researcher whose two-headed crew is on the verge of a medical breakthrough. Only, it's not going fast enough for him and he gives false information to the newspapers in order to put more pressure on Sophie and Pack. In response, they want to teach him a lesson that naturally goes horribly wrong! George is a diabetic and when he finds out Sophie messed with his insulin, he totally goes out of his mind. This episode features quite a few popular topics that often reoccurred in the "Tales from the Crypt"-series (blackmail, murderous scientists, poisoning…); only they're not handled very well here. The medical project these scientists are working on remains vague and we don't get much background information about the characters. We can't really consider McDermott's character to be a super-villain, since he's petrified of needles and needs Sonia Braga to give him the insulin injections. "This'll Kill Ya" was the second episode of season four, and a huge disappointment compared to the first one which was stuffed with gore and black humor ("None but the Lonely Heart").
