Storyline

Two teens on their way to a backwoods party come across a beautiful young woman having car trouble. Their search for help only gets them lost, deep in the woods, where they meet Forest Ranger Bill with a penchant for scary stories. The campfire flickers long into the night as the ranger uses words to weave his tapestry of terror, filling their young minds with a host of horrific images that will be burned into your consciousness long after the fire's last embers have gone out. Insane doctors, Indian ghosts, bad drugs, a deranged handyman with shiny new shears - all that and more awaits anyone brave enough to stay until sunrise... if you live that long! Written by Schleppy

Not really so bad
15 October 2002 | by (Firenze, Italy) – See all my reviews

A direct-to-video (I think) trilogy of tales based on a comics book: the first story is a classic tale of a few stupid kids that goes after the wrong guy (an insane handyman) and pay for the disturb. The second tale is the story of three young criminals that try to kill an Indian but are punished with the loss of their young age. The third tale is a psychotic trip in a the deranged mind of a young girl. The movie is not great, far enough from it, but it's not really bad and it is good watching for the fans of horror anthologies.
