Nice idea
30 July 2015 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

SLIPPAGE, an episode of the TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE TV show, tells an interesting story with only a so-so execution. It probably would have worked better on the page rather than as a film, because this is all about ideas rather than execution.

Basically, a typical guy finds his life spiralling out of control when he literally begins to disappear from existence. He misses out on a job, his wife starts to ignore him, and it's as if he's ceasing to exist. It's a nice allegory for mental illness or depression, and the film benefits from the presence of David Patrick Kelly (Sully from COMMANDO) as the lead, but it's not really a very exciting or intriguing episode despite the premise.
