Suffers from being a very grim and bleak anthology film with a narrative structure that never lives up to the innovation of "Creepshow."

This is just another miss along the lines of Creepshow and Twilight Zone: The Movie.

This group of tales is perfect for your low-calorie horror midnight snack.

Harrison never quite transcends the inherently limited format.

Not nearly as cool as Creepshow, but a lot better than...Campfire Tales? Deadtime stories? Tales from the Hood? Creepshow 2? See, there just aren't enough cool horror anthologies out there.

Horror fans-particularly those who enjoy the Tales From the Darkside TV show-should be content with this two-out-of-three.

A Creepshow ripoff that wallows in the fact.

Offers the kind of variety and creative opportunities that help paper over the movie's weaker narrative aspects.

hanks to casting that is savvier than the horror norm, and to direction by John Harrison that is workmanlike and sometimes even witty, at least it's fun.
