    Jings. Having the great John Carradine narrate the linking sequences can't hide the fact that this film is pants. And pants out of the bottom drawer at that. A portmanteau horror film with the same actors appearing in each segment would be passable if the actors were any good. They're really, really bad. In addition to acting so wooden I thought I could discern traces of Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus (ash dieback), there's cardboard scenery and footage recycled from Corman's Poe adaptations and a script that could have been written during an episode of Loose Women (with the author going out for a fag during ad breaks). No cliche is left unturned. F***ing hell!

    Notorious turkey has nostalgic followers who saw this on TV, but I didn't have the pleasure. Laughably inept and best viewed with a group. The short stories are bad to horrid and the ludicrously titled "King Vampire" has become an in-joke at our house. Carradine pads the running time with endless introductions to each story. The sight of a bloated, disspirited Lon Chaney, Jr. is just sad. Only for those who love good bad movies.
