Uneven horror anthology.
18 February 2000 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

I found this for 4 bucks at a Pharmor when visiting some friends up in Ann Arbor, Michigan. At the time I pondered two things. 1.) How do cheap, made-for-video horror films end up in a pharmacy? 2.) Would the movie be worth my four bucks? Since that's about the price of a rental, and since I'm an avid fan of horror films and would probably rent it anyway, I figured "Why not?" I also noted that Gunnar Hansen (Leatherface from the original Texas CHAINSAW MASSACRE) and former Hammer starlet Veronica Carlson starred.

I suppose it was worth four bucks, but this is uneven, and at it's worst, flat-out unwatchable. The worst story (the first) is about a woman (Jennifer Peluso) who gets revenge (using witchcraft) after a cocky jerk drives her pregnant sister to suicide. The last tale is equally lame, about a man who trades bodies with a grotesquely deformed carnival freak for ten thousand bucks (!?!?!?!). Thankfully the middle segments are more successful, including a terrific tale about the ghost of a mummy wreaking havoc at a Halloween party via 1890. This is where Carlson comes in, and she gives a refined, strong performance as the bitter Grace Harmsworth. In worthless linking segments, Gunnar Hansen is around trying to scare a teen couple with the aforementioned tales. He just isn't as menacing without his Leatherface mask on.
