Sad that Vincent attached his name & image to this
21 September 2002 | by (Utah) – See all my reviews

It is sad to see the previously great Vincent Price attach himself to the front and back end of this amateurish production of silly & sad non-spooky shorts. He's in there briefly at the front, and briefly at the end, but the stuff inbetween was made by hacks.
