Dead of Night Reviews
The three stories are pedestrian at best and more of the blame can be placed on Curtis than Matheson. It feels like the stories are good but the acting and direction are lacking. All of the stories are also cursed with that TV movie cheapness and have that late-70's softness to the camera work. It's a soft, filtered look. Kind of like what they use to try and make Barbara Walters not look as old as the hills when she's on camera these days.
Anyway, none of the stories are scary in the least. The first is a melancholy time travel story. The second leads us to believe there's a vampire on the loose and the finale is a tale of resurrection by satanic ritual. It's fair to say the final shot of the movie shocks you and is unexpected but it's not frightening. It's a jump scare more than anything.
Overall, this isn't worth watching unless you have a hankering for cheap 1970's Horror.
