Three Reasonable Horror Tales, Presented by The Voice of the Retribution
26 June 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The Voice of the Retribution (James Earl Jones – his voice only, maybe the most beautiful one in the cinema industry) is the host in this VHS, presenting three different horror tales in the same way as, for example, the Crypt Keeper does in 'Tales From the Crypt'. The difference is that each character receives a delivery from hell and has to sign his name after the X in the receipt, starting his journey to hell.

First Tale: 'Heroine Overdose':

Alan Smythee (Jerry Anderson) is a very sexist and also addicted in heroine director of porn and sex-exploitation movies, showing no respect for women. While having a shot of heroine, he has a bad trip in a world based on his screenplays, but where the women prevail, exploring the men. This tale makes a joke with its title ('Heroine Overdose') in a double sense, since the character has a double 'overdose' of heroines (the drug and the female characters). The idea is good, but the cast is horrible and the story does not work well. My vote is four.

Second Tale: 'Pandora'

While driving in high speed, the anchor Angela Pandorus (Linda Carol Toner) hits a boy, who was crossing the street with a music box. She does not help him, afraid of losing her job, where she has just been promoted. She has troubles with her conscience, being haunted by the dead kid. This story is very tense and has a great atmosphere and special effects. However, the resolution of the plot in the last scene is not good. I felt sorrow, since this tale really hooked my attention. My vote is six.

Third Tale: 'Veteran's Day'

Eric Keller (J. T. Wallace) is a crap since he was a young man. Lawrence Novotny (Michael Hantson), his mate from the university, was sent to Vietnam and further declared missing in action denounced by him. His wife has just left him, since he beat her and their children. Novotny appears to him and takes Eric to Vietnam to experiment the same pain and tortures he had passed through. This tale is the best one. In some parts, it recalls 'House', but it is a good story. My vote is seven.

My vote in IMDb for this movie is six.

Title (Brazil): 'Terrorgram – O Telegrama da Morte' ('Terrorgram – The Telegram of the Death')
