Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed
True life tales of wedded woe.
Get out the confetti, the wedding cake, and the hearse. John Waters (Hairspray, Serial Mom, Pink Flamingos) stars as the Groom Reaper in Love You To Death, the 13-episode, half-hour, anthology series featuring stories inspired by true crimes involving married couples whose once wedded bliss ends in murder.
As presenter and narrator, The Groom Reaper, he brings his macabre sensibility and wry comedy to a series of dramatised stories which reveal the real life cases of ill-fated relationships, what they did, why they did it, and how they covered it up. Recalling great anthology series like Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Twilight Zone, each episode of this dark, edgy, and unique series has a happy ending, John Waters style, with the guilty spouse getting caught in a way he/she never expected.
"Such good sickly fun." - The New York Times

The series takes real cases of marriages gone bad...REAL bad...like as in death bad...and turns them into short morality plays. Each episode runs in the half hour mark and puts forth a tale of murderous matrimony. Yes the stories all end with one spouse or the other clearly deceased.
As with most anthology shows, this one has a host all its own. Director John Waters (the original HAIRSPRAY, CRY BABY) stars as the Groom Reaper. Each episode begins with a brief look at the happy couple as they are married only to have the Reaper in the background filling us viewers in that wedded bliss is not to be in the near future. Someone is headed for the grave.
This first season of the show features 13 episodes of marital mayhem ranging from older man meets younger woman to a donut king who finds marriage can't fill the holes of his life. Yes these stories may seem over the top but the series claim that they are all based on true events with only the most minor of alterations.
One thing that makes this series work is that none of the actors are name above the title celebrities whose big screen image baggage would hinder what unfolds in each half hour. Instead we have a collection of actors you don't recognize but who give above par performances compared to some of the lowest B movies released to drive ins across the land.
Waters stands out as the Groom Reaper, adding just a touch of the macabre in his style and a ton of wit in his delivery.Read more ›

John Waters is god! Or, at least he has god's wicked sense of humor. He is a very funny man and I wish him all the bleakness in the world. Read morePublished on January 11, 2014 by J. P. MCGETTIGAN
Waters' appearances are well worth the purchase, but the stories presented are mostly second rate. Good for a few laughs if John is your cup of tea.Published on February 16, 2013 by Sandman
The DVD's came in a generic solid black case (no picture). There was no indication that this was a used product, but even if it was, I would not have minded if it came in the... Read morePublished on November 29, 2011 by bandita
