Trivia

The film was originally produced as three episodes of an unsold anthology series of the same name, which would have followed the same format as Tales from the Crypt (1989), but focused on EC Comics' adventure and war stories, rather than on horror. When "Two-Fisted Tales" was not picked up, the three episodes were aired as a TV movie, as well as edited into three episodes of "Tales from the Crypt" despite the fact that they are not horror stories.

Brad Pitt - not his best
28 May 2001 | by bonniecatSee all my reviews

Thought I would write about this further to the comments of another writer, who suggested it was impossible to get hold of.

It was screened on UK TV on the SciFi channel on 28th May 2001.

If you are desperate to see it - it's still out there. I wouldn't recommend it if you are a Brad Pitt fan though. Film is awful, and he doesn't look his best.
