(at around 30 mins) The father is seen to be shaving and talking to his daughter. We see that his mustache is fully shaved; clean from shaving cream. 8 seconds later, we see cream magically re-appear on one half of his mustache and 6 seconds later cream disappears again, all without him doing anything at all.

I'm a sucker for John Ritter due to my longstanding love of "Three's Company," so when I stumbled across this flick while browsing through On Demand horror movies, I was quick to download it.
I wasn't expecting much, but I found myself laughing right from the opening credits, and I was thoroughly engaged during these "Tales from the Darkside"-type stories. I think my favorite was the second--I don't think I've ever seen a monkey as a horror villain!
The film satisfied both my love for Ritter and my love for cheezy horror, so I have no complaints. If you like Tales from the Crypt, Tales from the Darkside, the Twilight Zone, or any of the other myriad sci-fi/horror anthologies, you might just enjoy this little unknown gem. Worth a watch, especially around Halloween when all the other horror flicks are rented.
