Trivia

Goofs

Mr Lokai, trying to impress Janice Baird with what he knows about her, refers to "Mussorgsky's 'Pictures at an Exhibition' in G major". 'Pictures . . .' is a collection of separate descriptive pieces representing paintings in a museum. Music like this is almost never referred to by the key it begins in, as are Symphonies and Concerti. In fact, Mussorgsky's piece begins in B-flat major, and none of the separate pieces is in G major.

Starts well, but makes a mess at the end
26 August 2011 | by (Madrid, Spain) – See all my reviews

I think Werewolf Concerto is probably one of the worst episodes of Tales from the Crypt. It starts out really promising, with some of the most appreciated TFTC elements: a dark setting (a little hotel out on the countryside), an appealing premise with a supernatural element (a werewolf has been spotted, and the hotel manager has hired a hunter to chase him down, but said hunter's identity is withheld; we're also told that there have been two murders) and a handful of picturesque, mysterious and comical characters thrown in to play villains, victims, and to throw in red herrings. Among them, the usual very familiar actors that TFTC always features: in this case, Timothy Dalton, and also Beverly D'Angelo.

I was particularly appealed at the Agatha-Christie-like setting and the promise of hidden culprits to unmask, plus the hunt for the werewolf and the mystery hunter. But it seems that the writers didn't know exactly where they wanted to take the story, or how to make the most of the many tools they had at hand. About halfway into the episode, there's a quite out-of-place turn that the plot takes, and it all ends up in what feels like a very rushed denouement. I was quite dissatisfied at this episode, especially because so much could be done. I think TFTC works best when the storyline is more simple and straightforward, which, far from detracting from the fun and the quality, enhances it.

My vote is 2/10.
