four stories
25 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

This looks like a made for TV movie or one that was for the direct to video market. Four horror/thriller stories each with a twist in the end. The stories are titled "See No Evil", "The Intruder", "Have a Nice Day" and "The Good Samaritan". There is no linking device and nothing supernatural so it is not like The Twilight Zone more like Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
