Magic cookie dough - are you kidding me?
17 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

These TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE episodes seem to get dumber and dumber. BAKER'S DOZEN is about magic cookie dough, if you can credit that. The story involves a voodoo-practising baker who creates magic foodstuffs that have the power to grant wishes and the like. She also keeps her husband under the thumb and turns him into a rat on occasion.

As guessed this is dire stuff in which the supernatural stuff is played for broad laughs. There's an abundance of over the top acting, an ultra annoying advertising salesman who gets way too much screen time, and a general lack of cohesion. The only good bit is a surprisingly gory scene at the climax.
