Loathsome and not in a good way
22 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

THE SWAP is a mean-spirited story from season three of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE. It's a three-hander about a mean medicine man who lives in the Louisiana bayou and is hated by his wife, who's having an affair with an atypically handsome handyman. The two plot to murder the repulsive husband, little bargaining on his genuine supernatural powers.

This is a loathsome story in which ugliness equals evil, apparently. The main character is a horrible-looking creation, covered in boils and warts and overweight to boot. And yet he's the guy you end up rooting for, considering the murderous nature of the other two. The twist ending is predictable, the acting is poor, and the episode as a whole has an unpleasant feel to it which I didn't much care for.
