excruciatingly inferior tripe
11 April 2003 | by (Pocono Summit, PA) – See all my reviews

As of this writing, the IMDb credited cast for Reel Horror is soooo misleading... Actually, this film consists of clips from eight different movies in which those people (among others) appear. This is called Reel Horror because the octet is horror (or thriller-type) flicks, which are horrible themselves. So we have parts of eight really bad pictures tied illogically together by excruciatingly inferior skits that allude to various curses that have befallen folks in the theatrical profession. It's hard to imagine that what happens BETWEEN the previously-made stuff could be WORSE than the older fare - but it is. Much worse. For example, sound so poor that I often missed what was said, in spite of my assuring ample volume. (I was the only living thing which would venture within hearing distance of the dialogue. I bet the plants wished that they could walk.) There is a cast of seven which should bear additional blame for the intervening nonsense. Also, consider this: there's a name among the closing credits for "eyepatches." The parts of the selected works have absolutely no other similarity. Having seen it on TV, my lost investment is pretty much restricted to my time. Somebody would be a robber if any money was exchanged for this tripe.
