Movie Info

Three purloined video tapes create all sorts of problems for the two teens who stole them in this horror trilogy that was originally made for television. The tapes they swiped, so they could have movie night with their girl friends, are "Killer Punch," featuring a cruel puppeteer using his craft to torment his family; "Scream House," about a young couple living in a house haunted by the spectre of a deranged killer; and "Garden of Blood," a chronicle of two hapless gardeners assigned to tend a haunted yard. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Screamtime


A British horror omnibus/anthology film, Screamtime has the somewhat intriguing premise of two guys stealing videotapes from a store and then watching them as its set-up. The tapes, of course, may or may not begin to bleed into their lives. Crappy, derivative, and unoriginal tales make this a film that will pass the night for a horror fan who has seen everything else, but none of the stories are very memorable, scary, or stylish.

64% First segment was garbage, second was better and if the whole film had been like the third peice I would have really enjoyed it.

Very light 80's horror anthology, nothing terribly great, but good Saturday afternoon nostalgic fun.
