Dated and overacted
13 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

SNIP, SNIP is, for me, a very annoying episode of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE. It's one of those ones which has dated badly, with cheesy production values leading to a cheap-looking set and unrealistic supernatural elements. It's also overacted and saddled with a silly comic story that doesn't really go anywhere.

Practising Satanist Bud Cort devises a sure-fire way to win the lottery: he'll call on the power of the black arts to do his bidding and make himself a millionaire. Except it all goes wrong, and a random woman wins instead. Cort visits her seeking revenge, but the woman has a secret of her own.

Plenty of this episode is overacted, with characters shouting at one another; there's no restraint in sight. Cort is a particularly guilty party, although it's hard to dislike Carol Kane in her role. But there's little of quality here unless you're a real sucker for this show.
