How many times can they tell the same story?
1 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I swear the scriptwriters of these '80s horror anthology shows like THE NEW TWILIGHT ZONE, TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE, and MONSTERS are obsessed with writing stories about scriptwriters making a deal with the Devil in return for Hollywood fame and glory. THE DEAL is yet another twist on the same old tale, with a struggling scriptwriter who gets a knock on his apartment door one day. His visitor is a guy with a very special deal, but will the scriptwriter accept?

THE DEAL is predictable in the extreme and hardly enlivened by a generally lacklustre feel to the production, a going-through-the-paces quality to the direction, and some less than stellar performances. It's a highly missable episode.
