TALES FROM THE CRYPT: YOU, MURDERER (TV) (Robert Zemeckis, 1995) ***
27 October 2007 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

Again, this is more noir than horror – but, all in all, quite a delightful TFTC episode (despite a rather weak title). The Humphrey Bogart credit is obviously an in-joke; actually, look-alike impersonator Robert Sacchi is the real star of this episode which displays a tongue-in-cheek approach to murder (extending to the improbable twist ending) and much use of the genre's traditional hard-boiled dialogue. Isabella Rossellini (daughter of a former co-star of the real Bogart) is perfectly cast as a femme fatale; also in the cast: John Lithgow (slimy as ever) and Sherilyn Fenn (as the "dumb" good-girl type). Following the success of Zemeckis' FORREST GUMP (1994), the punning cryptkeeper host of the series appears dressed-up like him and – just as the character in that film – is made to interact with long-dead personalities, in this case Alfred Hitchcock!
