A Cheesy Trilogy of Creepy Low-Budget Horror Tales in the Style of Creepshow that Entertains a Lot, 20 January 2014
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Three men find themselves forced to gamble blackjack for their souls with the Dealer (Mark Fickert) that is the devil. As long as they bet, the reasons why they are in that place is revealed.

"Cellar Space": The hoodlums Peter (Rocky Patterson) and his accomplice Fred (Charles Carroll) kill a man and they break into the basement to escape from the police, where the harmless Nickodemus (Gordon Fox) live. They give an abusive treatment to the old man and discover that he is actually a powerful demon.

"Blues in the Night": The lawyer and aspirant songwriter Phillip Barton (Kevin Walker) finds a demo tape of the unknown blues singer Samson Burke (Vincent Gaskins) in a garage sale and he becomes obsessed to find the man, affecting his relationship with his girlfriend Lynda. He discovers that Samson Burke is an obscure blues man that was forgotten by his family after his death, and Phillip decides to take the credit for his songs. But Samson returns from the afterlife to collect Phillip soul.

"Dark Dealer": Ray (Richard Hull, Jr.) meets the drug dealer Cracker (Jeff English) expecting to pay the debts of his addicted girlfriend Denise (Kim Frazier) that is forced to prostitute for Cracker. The drug dealer proposes that Ray steals the badge of his father that works in a pharmaceuticals laboratory and they break into the laboratory to heist drugs. Cracker takes an experimental drug and transforms himself into a lethal ball of lights. Now Ray has to gamble for his soul and try to save Denise that was dragged into the ball.

"The Dark Dealer" is a cheesy trilogy of creepy low-budget horror tales in the style of Creepshow that entertains a lot. I saw this movie for the first time on 24 February 2000 on VHS and I loved it. Yesterday I saw it again and I had lots of fun. This movie has a minimum budget, uses amateurish cast, the camera work and lightening are poor, but the stories are well-written and do not disappoint. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Jogo Macabro" ("Macabre Game")
