Look Out, Cathy!
9 October 2008 | by mattressman_pdlSee all my reviews

Season Two of the popular cult-hit Tales from the Crypt begins with a star fueled episode about getting what you want...maybe.

Demi Moore is Cathy, a bored-typist who visits what she takes to be a hack fortune-teller. In their meeting, the fortune teller makes Cathy aware that she is to be fired...only to find another job by the end of the day. Cathy leaves, unfulfilled. Until the fortune teller's advice turns out to be accurate. Soon after, Cathy learns that she is to find a rich man who will inherit a large sum of money and then kick the bucket. All Cathy has to do is find him. Well she does find him, his name is Charlie. An unkempt, overweight loser. Will she stick it out for the money, or will the future prove to be TOO correct? The episode moves along nicely, with character actors Troy Evans and, triumphantly, Jeffrey Tambor as Charlie. But it's the episode's finale which ultimately takes the cake.
