Storyline

A collection of short stories. In one a woman who leaves her house late at night to drive to the store while a killer is loose encounters some problems. In the second an arcade whiz kid's obsession with a game leads to deadly consequences. In the third a small town priest loses his faith and decides to leave town, but in the desert is stalked by a mysterious black pick-up truck. In the final story, a family's problem with a rat is larger than they think. Written by Parca Mortem <icy_shadow@rocketmail.com>

Trivia

These stories were originally written and filmed for the anthology series Darkroom (1981). They were deemed too intense by Universal and thus culled into an anthology film for theatrical release. See more »

Goofs

When Father MacLeod is saying the funeral Mass for the slain child, the Latin he uses is completely random. For example, during the ablutions (where he is washing his fingers presumably prior to the consecration) he is saying the "Hail Mary", which is not part of the Mass liturgy at all. Also, if the action is contemporary (as the cars being used suggest), the Mass would almost certainly be in the vernacular (i.e. either English or Spanish). See more »

Quotes

Bishop: Greetings, Earthling. I am the Bishop of Battle, master of all I survey. I have 13 progressively harder levels. Try me if you dare.

A fun trip back to 1983
12 November 2001 | by (Evansville, IN) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie very much, it's a perfect lazy Sunday afternoon flick when there's nothing to do. Although this movie really isn't that scary, not many were from this time period (The Shining excepted). Each of the 4 segments have their own charm, especially Emilio Estevez as the video game addict. 22 minutes of pure 80's nostalgia!! I would recommend this movie for a fun trip back to 1983, shag carpet and New Wave background music optional.
