    I had very fond memories of this movie as a kid. After re-watching I don't really know what I was thinking. The first story is pretty good but the last two stories were long and insanely boring. Savini puts in some great gore but those are the only highlights of this one.

    Regular portmanteau film with no really memorable stories, the best one probably being the final one starring James Remar and Rae Dawn Chong

    During which my mom gave me a lecture on safe sex and condom usage (or your one-night stand might turn out to actually be a gargoyle. I'm pretty sure that was her point anyway).

    The best part hands down was in "Cat From Hell", when we see the (fake) black cat climbing all the way INTO David Johansen's (real) mouth, and then the (real/bewildered) cat struggle to climb OUT of Johansen's (very fake) mouth.

    "Tales From the Darkside" was a fairly entertaining horror program in the 1980's, so it was only a matter of time until we saw a feature film, especially since anthologies were a hot medium at the time. The name is the only connection to the series, as everything else is completely unrelated, and despite the amazing amount of talent behind the scenes, the film is shockingly ordinary.

    The first story, "Lot 249," written by Michael McDowell, is your standard revenge…

    I loved these anthology shows in the 80s and 90s while growing up, so the first two stories as well at the wrap around story are fun but forgettable stories but the last story "Lover's Vow" is awesome, reminds me of something that would've, could've, should've been in The Twilight Zone. "YOU PROMISED YOU'D NEVER TELL!!!"

    A fun anthology Horror movie....my favorite is the final segment with the killer cat although I enjoyed them all. Deborah Harry's between segments are also good with a bit of humor.

    As an owner of a cat who likes to shit in my bed whenever I make him mad, the cat story literally had me in stitches.

    Anthologies are always tricky, but I had seen this as a kid, and the final piece always had an element that stuck with me as being truly scary. I think it hits on the idea of how people change, you can build a life with someone, and one day it can fall apart. Still the other two stories are kinda weak.

    I can't fucking believe my wife doesn't think 1990 Christian Slater is cute. I'm getting a divorce.
