Clips of terror in manifold
14 April 2014 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

What can I really say about a film that dedicates it's running time to showcasing clips from some of the scariest movies, intercepted, by two horror icons, sitting in a almost empty cinema, passing on their remarks. Not much. Why make a film like this, or what was the point to it? It's a money stealer, robbing people of their time and money, with endless clips from past flicks, who many of course, would of been familiar with, and they're not just horror flicks. May'be too, on the flipside, the film would have sold scenes to budding moviegoers, who hadn't seen that particular film, if enticing them, to see it. Whatever, the movie does work wonderfully to terrifying effect, with some thought provoking commentary, but it can't hide the fact, that all it is, is scenes from past movies, strung together, where as a films, such as Creepshow is a film, constructed of original scary moments. Although TITA (great title) does amazingly work, where these days it wouldn't, the best bits are the icons delivering their after words.
