    After a long weekend I was looking for a movie that I wouldn't need to think too much about - this did the trick. It was pretty predictable and that made it a bit boring. It had a great cast and some outstanding effects.

    I bet given how well received those fake trailers were during the Tarantino/Rodriguez Grindhouse film - that an anthology horror film such as this would really succeed - given the right talent of course... Or is…

    Blondie wants to cook a child and gave it a story book to pass the time before cooking. Apparently she forgot the stories and so the kid tries to distract her with said stories, like Scheherazade.

    I’ve never seen the TV show that inspired this Creepshow spiritual successor, mostly because I was too young and didn’t know English then, and I’ve never gotten around to finding copies of the episodes since. So I’ll review it as its own entity and…

    Tales From the Darkside: The Movie is an anthology Horror film that collects 3 unrelated Horror shorts. The format is exactly similar to the Creepshow films, and rumour has it that this actually began life as a Creepshow movie. Considering Stephen King and George A Romero were both involved in the writing process, this rumour starts to ring true. And if you've enjoyed the Creepshow films I'd say this one is definitely worth checking out.

    The 3 stories are framed…

    I was pretty disappointed with this. I usually love horror anthologies but found Tales From The Darkside to just be mostly dull and boring.

    The three stories didn't have enough to them to warrant an entire film. The middle story about a hitman trying to kill a cat definitely felt dragged out and had an incredibly underwhelming ending. The first story about a reanimated mummy was bland and had an odd cast including Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore and Christian Slater.…

    Film 2 of the "Scavenger Hunt #5" Challenge!
    Task 20. A movie starring a rapper/singer
    Jayce's August Scavenger Hunt

    This film was not my first choice for a movie that stars a singer(that honor goes to Trick or Treat, a movie starring Ozzy Osbourne and Gene Simmons), but a movie that stars Debbie Harry(who has never been called Blondie) as a witch cooking a child is definitely one I would watch as well. The child then tries to keep her…

    This was enjoyable enough for a lazy Sunday afternoon. I especially liked the POV cat-cam from the second story. All the stories are a bit weak, but with some good character actors and just the right amount of cheese, they are quite entertaining.

    The "Seasons of Belief" TV episode with The Grither was way better than all three of these segments combined.

    Another anthology! Let's look, per usual, at the shorts:

    Lot 249- This short was the weakest of the bunch. It was a great start to the movie though! It wasn't terrifying, but it wasn't boring either. The creature was well done and the plot actually was really interesting. And hey, it's Julianne Moore's first time being on screen! ★★½

    Cat from Hell- The atmosphere was amazing! It just oozed out dread! Who knew that a little cat could be such…

    The movie's all right and there are some cool effects but, MAN is the music in this terrible.

    This was actually really enjoyable and the third segment trumps all three segments.

    I love anthology films and this was just an over the top horror film and I fucking loved it but it's not as memorable as Creepshow.

    The involvement of King and Romero mean this is the actual Creepshow sequel. Outside of the very fun wraparound story (helpfully titled "Wraparound Story" in the credits) there isn't a ton of inspiration here, but it's incredible what some strong craft and real actors can do to elevate simplistic little spooky stories like this. Harrison takes the material just the right amount of serious and KNB were at the height of their powers, putting in some truly wonderful and grotesque…
