Overview
Top comedic talent hits new heights of zaniness in this three-episode parody of classic sci-fi shows like The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits. Joe Flaherty (SCTV, Used Cars) hosts this wonderfully clever, bizarre and delightfully funny Really Weird Tales.

"Cursed With Charisma" — In the failing town of Fitchville, a mysterious stranger (John Candy, Delirious) stirs things up with a no money down real estate boom, but in his wake come two aliens with plans of their own for the place.

"I'll Die Loving" — Catherine O'Hara (Home Alone) portrays a woman with a serious problem. Everyone she loves explodes. Will she find a cure, or will all her romances literally go up in smoke?

"All's Well That Ends Strange" — A third-rate lounge performer (Martin Short, ¡Three Amigos!) thinks he's made the big time through his friendship with a girlie magazine publisher, but soon he discovers what s really behind those buxom bodies and sexy smiles.
