It still haunts me...
28 July 2003 | by (Stockholm, Sweden.) – See all my reviews

As a young lad I had the opportunity to see this "film", and allthough it had nothing compared to Tales from the Crypt, or Twilight Zone - hell, The Hitchiker was better - but I still thought that the plot in each story still had an edge...just that it wasn't that sharp...and it still managed to capture and hold that strange feeling when you don't know if you should laugh out loud, turn it off and something worth while, or maby just see it for what it is - A movie that's very idea (as so many have) that it IS bad. After all, just about everyone likes to trash a movie now and then just for fun...
