When I lived in Vancouver way back in 1992, I frequented a good number of Gentlemen's Clubs and one of them was The Penthouse, which makes a cameo here. Oh, the mammaries.
Pelts was wild to return to. One of the best MOH episodes because it doubles down on the gore and sleaze and totally embraces the freedom that Showtime allotted its directors. The makeup effects are downright grizzly and practical. Other episodes were plagued by some bad CG, so Argento made a good call to avoid that method. This is what cable TV was all about and this particular episode reminded meof the better Tales From the Crypt segments, which is what MOH owes its biggest debt to. Meat Loaf and John Saxon are nicely cast, but the raunchy seductiveness of foxy Ellen Ewusie as the stripper that Meatloaf obsesses over, raised this half a star for me. RIP John Saxon. 8.6/10
