Standout Episode of an otherwise underwhelming series
I recall when Two Twisted first appeared on television here in Australia. My family and I have always held an interest in horror, and myself an unfulfilled craving for that of an anthology format - akin to the likes of Goosebumps or Are You Afraid of the Dark of which I enjoyed as a child
This episode revolves around three characters: A downtrodden barber who is constantly put down by his abusive wife played by Roy Billing, his best friend, fellow stamp enthusiast and neighbouring collectible store owner played by Sam Neill - and said abusive wife, who used to be a popular model of some degree.
The dynamics between these characters are not only what drives the character establishment but the plot progression itself, as the constant harassment by the wife towards both men is what drives them to escape further into their unified desire to collect the titular Von Stauffenberg's Stamp.
I will not discuss any further as this stories only real flaw is how easily it can be spoiled.
Seriously, go find this episode and watch it. Top quality direction, writing and performances. A stand out episode of an otherwise underwhelming and mixed series.
