A good vampire episode.
2 August 2006 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

A struggling writer is approached by a vampire who wants him to write this vampire's life story. Inreturn he will make him immortal. Once the book is written and this man is popular again, the vampire returns and wants a share. I can't say that this is a particularly memorable episode, but it had me thoroughly entertained by the nice gore makeup and the fine acting. This season has a bit too many vampire episodes for this one to work, but it's still a fun episode and is well directed. This can be found on Tales from the Darkside volume 4 on VHS!!

My rating: Good episode. 23 mins. TV PG V
