And now for something completely different…Tales From the Crypt went into left field with its Season 1 finale, employing M. Emmet Walsh and Audra Lindley  to play an aging couple dealingwith the doldrums of retirement.  Walsh plays a complete asshole while Lindley personifies a crazy cat lady.  Walsh decides to take up taxidermy as a hobby, and his wife’s pets make the perfect subjects.

The finale is directed by another well known name in the horror genre, Mary Lambert (Pet Semetary).  The direction is tight, but I find this episode more weird than scary. although the final shot is pretty gruesome.

Overall, I thought Season 1 started with out amazing and ended on a bit of a weak note.  The early episodes were the strongest.  This was still a great inaugural season.  I look forward to digging into Season 2 and beyond!
