    Super 8 Horror anthology shot in 1989 and completed in 2010 is like most anthologies, uneven. I liked the second story the best, a riff on "A Christmas Carol" about a teacher who hates Halloween, and more specifically, the kids who enjoy it. All in all, this had it moments, and a lot of impressive homemade effects.

    The Claudia Jennings show! It's almost as if she is acting in a different movie, a better movie. This movie though has a lot to offer, really lively cinematography, an excess of 70's flair, and a lot of charm. For all the goofy voice-over work and fun montages set to 50's Rock N' Roll, there are at least 3 dramatic scenes that really illustrate Jennings' chops. All in all, this is a really charming movie.
