Nothing much here folks
19 January 2002 | by (los angeles) – See all my reviews

An anthology of three different horror stories, this movie is basically a poor man's version (or just plain poor version) of the Creepshow, or Tales from the Crypt, or Twilight Zone. The only "twist" that made this worth watching was an erotic sex scene with Francoise Robertson in the third story.
