The first segment titled "A Little Fishy" follows a fisherman, who ends up being the bait. "Coffee Break" follows a delivery man, who gets lost and ends up in the one town you can't get lost in... or leave. "Who's There" follows a man, who finds a baby Sasquatch in the forest, withe terrifying results. "Jonah's Dream" follows a widow in financial trouble, who finds a UFO in her late husband's mine along with something else. "Think Twice" follows a homeless guy, who gets robbed, but a strange glowing crystal he finds, allows him to dispense his own unique kind of justice. The sixth and final segment, "Hall of Faces", follows Matt again, who ends up in the place where Price is hosting from.

A Lot of Fun
12 November 2001 | by (united states) – See all my reviews

I liked this film. Not really heavy, just a lot of low budget fun stories. I have seen some of these stories on HBO, but it was fun to see them all together. If you want a light, enjoyable bit of entertainment, watch this.
