Weak. Very, very weak
8 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

There really isn't a lot I liked about "Flowers of Evil". It was an exceptionally weak episode with a ridiculous plot and a very, very long and talky ending.

When the show begins, a woman is staring at a skeleton and it begins screaming at her--at which point she beats the crap out of the skeleton to try to shut it up! It turns out that the skeleton is her missing husband and she and her lover have been hiding him in plain sight! They sold the skeleton to med students but they returned it because of the screaming!

A bit later, one of the professors notices the similarities between this skeleton and the missing husband. Both had arm injuries and he becomes suspicious--so she murders him. Then, she plans on killing her lover to get rid of loose ends. However, the boyfriend has other plans.

While this plot may not sound that bad, it all took so long to work itself out--and folks just kept talking and talking. Additionally, the screaming skeleton angle was silly--as was Jack Weston's ridiculous skin-head wig--with its obvious seams! Weak and not especially enjoyable.
