Trivia

Reunites Bond actors Timothy Dalton and Walter Gotell, who played Bond and General Gogol in The Living Daylights (1987). They shared no scenes in that film, due to Gotell being in poor health. Here, they are hero and adversary. See more »

Goofs

Mr Lokai, trying to impress Janice Baird with what he knows about her, refers to "Mussorgsky's 'Pictures at an Exhibition' in G major". 'Pictures . . .' is a collection of separate descriptive pieces representing paintings in a museum. Music like this is almost never referred to by the key it begins in, as are Symphonies and Concerti. In fact, Mussorgsky's piece begins in B-flat major, and none of the separate pieces is in G major.

Quotes

Crypt Keeper: Poor Lokai. Thought he was starring a labooem, turns out he was second lead in "Romeo and Ghouliet." I hope you're not cultured out kiddies because the next part of our program is a little part that I've been working on. I hope you like the goreography. Whenever you're ready, Isadora!
[throws the skeleton girl where it it lands with a crunch]
Crypt Keeper: Mmm... I guess it's back to the corpse du ballet for her.

Werewolf Concerto
8 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

This short TV episode from the "Tales From The Crypt" series begins with a frightened man running through the forest. Not fast enough, unfortunately. He has his head torn off. Good start - though not for him - next we switch to an hotel which is cut off from civilisation by a mudslide.

Fortunately though, one of the guests is a werewolf hunter, and he will slay the beast provided he is allowed to remain anonymous. Or she is allowed to remain anonymous. No, it is not the American tourist, for surely her husband would have sussed. Next there is another murder, but this time the perpetrator is human; the character he kills is a nasty piece of work who might just have killed him, but this guy who was shaping up to be the hero is suddenly not so nice.

Why did the hotel chef have to be called Wolfgang? No, this is not a pun, he really is called Wolfgang, he is celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck, a native of Austria, where this story is set. Or it might be Switzerland.

This really is an abominable miniature, but the surprise ending is its saving grace. On the other hand, you might just see it coming like I did!
