Branden's Review of Tales from the Darkside: The Movie
Truly the third Creepshow of the trilogy, Tales From the Darkside is an underrated classic. The first story, 'Lot 249', features a young Steve Buscemi, who upon obtaining an antique mummy, summons the mummy from the dead with magic. The other stories are true horror stories in the purest sense of the term. The Creepshow franchise is one of the better horror trilogies of the past few decades, taking its inspiration from 50's E.C. horror comics and traditional short story horror tales in the vein of Blackwood, Poe, and Lord Dunsany. The stories are bookended by a Hansel and Gretel-esque scenario, led by Blondie vocalist Deborah Harry as 'the witch'. A true horror gem.
