One of the best episodes of the show ever!
25 November 2017 | by TalesfromTheCryptfanSee all my reviews

A struggling artist named Jack Craig (Tim Roth) is trying to come up with art that can sell well, so after accidentally killing someone thus gives me an idea of drawing murdered people. So he sells art to a very wealthy rich man (William Atherthorn) who has a collection of morbid art will pay him a thousand dollars each for his artworks, Jack goes around killing people and painting their dead bodies on his portraits.

Co-starring Debra Mooney, this is one of the better episodes of the series! sure the plot has been done before in Bucket of Blood or Color Me Blood Red by HG Lewis. This episode is directed by John Harrison who did Tales from the Darkside the movie and did the music for Creepshow/Day of the Dead and did a nice job here, Roth did a fabulous performance as the struggling murderous artist and it's quite a well done episode with nice cinematography and nice score plus a tragic dark twist in the end makes this one of the better episodes of season 3.
