Pretty Uneven
17 September 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A collection of short horror episodes where freak show proprietor Burgess Meredith invites a group of patrons to experience their own futures. The best, in my opinion, is the one with Jack Palance, who is a great admirer of Poe. He visits the private collection of the world's foremost collector of Poe memorabilia, only to find the true source of the collection.

Another character has his comeuppance, tortured by a cat--payment for his greed, irresponsibility, and impatience.

In another, a greedy, ambitious young woman plays her cards too well, but overlooks something which proves here undoing.

In the silliest, a young blonde gets between a man and his love for his "killer" piano. As a matter of fact, as killer piano movies go, it's one of the best.

The stories are uneven in quality, but are well produced and interesting. I would give this a marginal recommendation. It has a very good cast and reasonably good script.
