6WH: Oct 23

Tales from the Crypt: "Split Personality" (1992) directed by Joel Silver
Producer Joel Silver's only directing credit. He didn't do a bad job at all. The show's about twins, so he gets to play with a lot of mirror images and parallelism, etc. Fun, visual stuff. Plus, Joe Pesci stars as the flim-flam man that marries both of the twins. Man, he is in full-on Pesci mode here. Thick, Jersey accent. Lots of "what the fuck is this shit!?" and "badda-bing" dialogue. Amusing to watch. (7/10)
