Middling vampire tale
12 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

STRANGE LOVE is a middling vampire story from season two of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE. This episode is notable for featuring the distinctive actress Marcia Cross, best known today for her role in the long-running DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, who plays the wife in a husband and wife vampire team. When a doctor turns up at the household to treat them, he's in for a surprise...

This tale plays out as a kind of romantic vampire love triangle, and one of the most interesting things for me is that the doctor character is played by Patrick Kilpatrick, usually better known as a screen heavy. The episode is pretty tame with lukewarm action and an annoyingly jokey tone.
