Blaxploitation voodoo antics
3 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

PARLOR FLOOR FRONT - possibly the worst-titled episode of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE in existence - is a wannabe 'blaxploitation' episode of the show. It concerns a married couple who become increasingly concerned about the strange and offbeat events in their apartment; because the couple's black, it's obviously down to voodoo, so this becomes a kind of voodoo whodunit as the culprit is uncovered.

The episode is notable for featuring a lead role for Adolph Caesar (one-time trailer narrator), an actor who brings gravitas and skill to his performance as a conflicted man. Unfortunately, the rest of the performances don't match his, and the execution is merely ordinary. It's another 'what could have been' episode of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE...
