A pair of shorts with a few extra legs.
1 April 2004 | by (california) – See all my reviews

Macabre Pair of Shorts.

It is not just two short stories as the title implies. It is much more! This little gem is packed with good ol' fashioned macabre Halloween funnery. When I first saw this I was giddy with the same feeling you got when you first put on your Halloween mask. Don't ask me to explain it. Its true. This film somehow affected the center of my brain that stores Halloween. M.P.S. is as fun for me as Mad Monster Party was for me as a kid. If ANY part of you enjoys Halloween you will love this anthology. I cant tell you how much I loved the Lesbian vampire segment with the umbrellas of Cherbourg touch. Ya cant help but love this film. Pick up a copy and enjoy a little bit of October any time of year.
