Carolina (Dorothy Lyman, Naomi from Mama’s Family) does Tarot card readings and is popular with her customers, as she always brings them the best of news. Once her competitor — Madame Marlena (Carmen Matthews) — switches out her deck, the fortune change to be filled with death. The cards can’t be destroyed, but can Carolina change her fortune?
The one good thing I can say is that this episode sticks to being horror and doesn’t veer into the silly side of the darkside. I’m such a grump, I realize, but the more jokey these episodes get, the cringier they become.
Based on a story by Carole Lucia Satrina (who wrote three of the Cannon Movie Tales Beauty and the Beast, Red Riding Hood and Puss In Boots), this was directed and written by Theodore Gershuny, who directed and wrote Silent Night, Bloody Night (and was once married to Mary Woronov).
