The bad news is that if you're expecting earth shattering, ground breaking amazingness that the John Waters and Court TV pairing brings to mind, you won't find it. Also bad news if you're my friend Laura and you thought this was a show where John Waters shows up at weddings to mess them up.
The good news is if you're a fan of HBO's Tales from the Crypt, your birthday just came early this year. It's impossible to think the similarities are unintentional, after all, Waters is playing the “Groom Reaper”. He initially thought the role was a bit different: “When they first asked me, I thought they said the Groom Raper. Either way, I would have said yes.”
The actors are from the same stock casting pool used for TFtC, minus the celebrity guests. Note to Court TV: phone Delta Burke and Dave Foley, I'm sure they'd love to make an appearance. The show tells true tales of marriages that end in murder. I have a feeling this weird gem might end murdered itself–if you call its cancellation by the Court TV execs murder, so help its ratings and watch now. So stick around bores and ghouls, because if they pull the plug on this show, what will happen to the state of holy deadlock [now imagine the crypt keeper laughing hysterically].
