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

Definitely not the best horror anthology in the world but...
24 January 2002 | by (Scranton, Pennsylvania (USA)) – See all my reviews

I recently picked up a copy of this film for $6.00 at my local Hollywood Liquidators retailer. The film looked fairly bad and I knew I must have it! It's basically a horror anthology with two short horror tales told within a main story. This framework plot does come together in the end (quite unexpectedly too). It's a decent film but it's dragged down by low production values. The acting is pretty bad, except for a few of the lead ladies. The effects are amateurish at best and the nudity is less than you may have expected. Generally the title refers to the two fake and disgusting beasties seen in the film. You're better off seeing the Creepshow movies, the Trilogies of Terror, or the Willies.
