Trivia

The season six, episode fifteen, "You, Murderer", was the only episode that used computer graphics imagery. This was for "resurrecting" the long deceased Humphrey Bogart, by using old films to digitally insert his face on either a stand-in, or a dummy, in scenes where the main character's face is shown in mirrors and other reflective surfaces, since the whole episode is seen through his point of view. The effects were done by Industrial Light & Magic, which also previously worked on Robert Zemeckis' Oscar winning film, Forrest Gump (1994). See more »

TALES FROM THE CRYPT: YOU, MURDERER (TV) (Robert Zemeckis, 1995) ***
27 October 2007 | by Bunuel1976See all my reviews

Again, this is more noir than horror – but, all in all, quite a delightful TFTC episode (despite a rather weak title). The Humphrey Bogart credit is obviously an in-joke; actually, look-alike impersonator Robert Sacchi is the real star of this episode which displays a tongue-in-cheek approach to murder (extending to the improbable twist ending) and much use of the genre's traditional hard-boiled dialogue. Isabella Rossellini (daughter of a former co-star of the real Bogart) is perfectly cast as a femme fatale; also in the cast: John Lithgow (slimy as ever) and Sherilyn Fenn (as the "dumb" good-girl type). Following the success of Zemeckis' FORREST GUMP (1994), the punning cryptkeeper host of the series appears dressed-up like him and – just as the character in that film – is made to interact with long-dead personalities, in this case Alfred Hitchcock!
