Pretty good, but then again...
10 October 2003 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

OK, it starts out with short stories, gory, yes. Gross, yes. Any good? Watch. Next we get to the main stories. The first one, scary, original, and funny. It's about a janitor who is really a monster and eats bad kids. The second story, long, stupid, wrong, sick, and boring. It's about Gordy Blecher who is in love with dead fly's. Good for the most part, and it is watchable, intil the end. *** out of ***** Good
