The first story is about a pack of high school football creeps trying to bully the janitor---who just happens to be an escaped mental patient. I think my little sister could take any of these football players in a fight---one at a time or simultaneously. It's really easy to hate and ridicule them. They chase the janitor into the woods, he ends of stalking and killing all but one of them, then the last one, the ring leader, gets pinned down to a chair and ostensibly butchered. This is the kind of crap that wouldn't even make the cut for an episode of Tales From The Darkside.
The second story is the worst, involving three lowlife creeps that like to hang around and roll the old folks. They set their sights on an old Indian, follow him to his place out in the woods. Then they kill him, steal his magic weed and begin smoking it. They have really lame Ronny James Dio type hallucinations, and then, they begin turning old, realizing that the magic weed sucked their life force and put it into the Indian. Blah blah blah. I know it's that literary device where, in the interest of justice, God assumes the form of a greater evil to consume the lesser one. It's cool when it's done correctly, but in this case it was just kind of flaccid.Read more ›
THE FIRST STORY IS ABOUT A DERANGED HANDYMAN WITH SHINY NEW SHEARS. IT IS NOT SO BAD, THE CHASE SCENES ARE PRETTY GOOD.
THE SECOND STORY IS ABOUT BAD DRUGS OR SOMETHING, THIS STORY WAS SO BAD I JUST SKIPPED THROUGH IT AFTER 5 MINUTES.
THE LAST STORY WAS THE BEST OUT OF THEM ALL. A WOMAN FEARS SHE IS BEING STALKED, AND WHEN HER FRIENDS TURN UP DEAD, HER FEARS BECOME A REALITY.
TWO OF THE THREE STORIES ARE PRETTY GOOD BUT THEY ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO BUY AT AN EXPENSIVE PRICE. I BOUGHT MINE FOR 50 CENTS AT A GARAGE SALE ON DVD. THE DVD ONLY HAS A TRAILER WHICH IN MY OPINION WAS NOT EVEN GOOD. IF YOU SOUND REALLY INTERESTED IN THIS THEN RENT DON'T BUY, BECAUSE THIS IS NOT WORTH YOUR MONEY.
If you want to know how much it sucked then read this one. I think all the other reviewers were really too generous in their praise for this film. One of the reviews says watch this movie if you are bored. DONT it will increase your boredom. The stories are rediculous and badly acted [not in that great b-horror shlock kind of way either...if you want that then get killer Klowns from outerspace].
I'm not a buff by any means, but I do love horror, all kinds of horror, good bad, great, gory... you name it. But this movie is none of that...it's just boring and disapointing.
Don't buy this movie. Please. If you must then rent it.. then write a review like mine and tell everyone how bad it was.
i thought there are many parts that are lame, but i dont think the film set out to be the most terrifying thing either, so given that, it does pretty well
like many other movies like this, it has about 4 different short stories that are strung together through the the storytelling of a park ranger
i found each of the stories a little bit too simple and easy to give them much credit in originality, but they at least held my intrest long enough, all in all i'd say worth watching and worth renting if you are looking to watch some campy scary stories, especially if there are youngsters with you, as the stories are not too scary
