What are we going to find in your suitcase?
21 November 2007 | by (Iowa, United States) – See all my reviews

Two excellent actors square off in this thrilling, well performed episode of Tales from the Crypt. David Paymer is Andy, a workaholic who murders his adulterous wife in a fit of rage. Vincent Spano is Officer Fine, the uniform cop who responds to the neighbor's report of a woman screaming. This episode is a nice, strong cat and mouse game with each actor at the top of their game. Paymer plays a nervous wreck very well and Vincent Spano's subtle, clever police officer work off well together.

In fact, a full length film featuring these two would probably work as well. The end is the best part as the twist comes from completely out of nowhere. A classic slight of hand trick that has the viewer looking one way while the twist comes from another.
