Storyline

In "The Wrap-Around Story", after a man leaves his mistress in their motel room, his wife sneaks in with a gun and ties the mistress up and forces the mistress to listen to two stories and critique them. The first is "The Box," and involves three hookers arriving in a mining town to move into a theater they bought to be their whorehouse. The town's mayor is upset, as he governs all the morals in the town. He has a box with a "thing" in it that people are afraid of: bad news for the hookers. The second is "Thing in a Jar," in which a woman keeps having vivid nightmares and visions of her husband mutilating her. She has a friend who encourages her to leave her husband, but it may not be that easy. Written by Anonymous

NOT GREAT BUT NOT ALL THAT BAD
9 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pretty decent b-movie flick in the vein of Tales From The Crypt and Trilogy Of Terror although lots of gore makes this above and beyond in the blood department. Some bad acting but that is to be expected when you watch a feature like this. Dennis Devine is behind this who has also done Dead Girls which was a decent Rock N Roll Slasher from 1989. This movie is worth checking out as long as you are not expecting too much. Does have tons of gore and blood which was a good thing. Slasher reviewer gives this a thumbs up and says overlook it's faults and just sit back and enjoy the show!!!!!!!!!
