Too tame
11 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

ANNIVERSARY DINNER is an entirely predictable episode of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE that unfortunately sees the subject matter constrained by the family-friendly nature of the series. In essence this tale is about an elderly couple getting ready to celebrate their wedding anniversary with a slap-up dinner. To this end they invite a young woman to stay at their home although there's an inevitable sting in the tale.

Unfortunately this is a story that's all about suggestion so something best left to the written format rather than a TV screen. The acting and production values are all very indifferent and half the running time seems to consist of a young woman larking around in a jacuzzi. The twist is instantly guessable so despite the short running time it seems to take forever to get there.
