True love comes back
22 October 2006 | by kendraezackSee all my reviews

Teri Hatcher plays a young and beautiful fashion model who is involved in a relationship with an older and more controlling man. Her very jealous boyfriend ( Miguel Ferrar)will go to all lengths to try to keep her to himself. When a fashion photographer reaches out to her he promises he will stop at nothing to help...even death. Really goes to show you how true love conquers all. Even if prince charming is a worm infested corpse. Kind of a predictable ending, as some Crypt tales are apt to be. Some scenes of a young and scantily clad Terri Hatcher may attract some viewers. Truly cheesiness makes this a classic crypt tale: morality lesson with a twist.
