    Wrap-around: ****1/2

    Lot 249: ***1/2

    Cat from Hell: ***1/2

    Lover's Vow: ****

    Overall a pretty good horror anthology flick with one of the best wrap-around segments of the genre.

    As with any anthology film, you're more likely than not going to get a dud or two. However, the final story really sold this one and put it over the top.

    Extra points from me for casting Debbie Harry as a camp drenched witch that eats children.

    Despite being more than 25 years old, this is a horror anthology that still offers plenty to its viewers. More than anything, this movie succeeded because it featured an incredibly talented cast, great writing, and good direction.

    This movie was filled with cheesy horror. I will probably end up watching this movie over and over again.

    We open to a beautiful town. Music full of beauty and whimsy. A woman driving home with groceries. Peace... Until that woman prepares a kid as a meal. This wraparound story is the basis for three other tales from the darkside. All with its different qualities.

    Story #1. A bunch of college yuppies compete for a stupid scholarship. How does Steve Buscemi's Edward get ahead and get revenge? Work hard? Pfft, fuck that! You buy a mummy, summon it and…

    Saw this anthology horror favorite introduced by the director at a Friday Night Frights event at The Cinefamily at The Silent Movie Theater.

    My better half fell asleep on me, this passed the time until she awoke. What a cast! Blondie, Christian Slater, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore, James Remar, and Rae Dawn Chong. That's how you do it. Decent practical FX as well

    Similar in spirit to the Creepshow anthology horrors, but not quite as fun. Although, that said, I thought it was more well balanced than the usual fare.

    Basic anthology flick with three short stories and a wraparound that see's Debbie Harry as a Witch preparing a young kid for dinner, whilst he tells her the content stories.

    At one point in time there was going to be a Creepshow 3. Also there where plans to make a TV serial of Creepshow. That never happened and we ended up with Tales from the Darkside TV-show instead. It did quite well, and naturally that lead to this anthology feature.…

    Some nice effects but suffers in comparison to Creepshow.

    Oh has this dated. Though I don't think I can remember watching it when it came out. Neither scary nor funny enough. Like it was made for kids. Better off watching the original Creepshow again.

    ★★½ Rewatched by Marty McKee 15 Nov, 2015

    Typically uneven dark-comic horror anthology...basically a CREEPSHOW 3. Only the final segment shows signs of life, though all three showcase impressive KNB effects. Take off points for a total waste of Robert Klein.
