Goofs

In the "People Can Lick Too" segment, there is a scene near the beginning where the older sister hands the younger sister some money and says "I'm going out tonight, don't tell anybody". At the point where she begins to say "Don't tell anybody", the audio\\visual becomes mismatched, as her mouth is clearly saying something else. See more »

Worth a look
29 May 2002 | by (Twin Cities Minnesota USA) – See all my reviews

This is a gem of a movie I discovered by accident. It is a nice anthology horror film which contains four stories rolled into one. There is graphic sex which is a little distracting, though. If you like this one you should check out "After Midnight".
