Fear Itself: In Sickness and In Health (2008)

Directed by John Landis.  Written by Victor Salva.  Starring Maggie Lawson, James Roday, Marshall Bell, William  B. Davis, Sonja Bennett and Christie Laing.

Plot: a bride recieves a note on her wedding day warning her that the person she’s marrying is a serial killer


The first few weeks of the show were anything, but fun.  However, I had high hopes for this one since both John Landis and Victor Salva were attached to it.  And for the most part, I liked it.

Maggie Lawson plays The Bride while James Roday is The Groom.  And yes, I liked that little Psych reunion.  It’s the wedding I always wanted to see.  But there’s always a catch.  In this, it’s that The Bride gets an anonymous note that says “The person you are marrying is a serial killer”.  Hearth thumping, she tries to find out what this note is all about.

My brother saw the twist coming first thing.  Kinda ruined it for me.  But he was right.  There was a twist and it was pretty easy to find out if you paid close attention to details.  DJ thought it was uneven storytelling though and he didn’t like any of the characters.  What was even the point of the Marshall Bell character? To distract us from reality.

It’s not the best of the series, but I still recommend it.  DJ doesn’t.

My score: 51.  DJ’s score: 28.
