Good show.
18 August 2002 | by (City of Angels) – See all my reviews

"Tomorrow's Bacon" is a throwback to the good old days of thriller/noir movies when good writing was more important than cheap shocks and sledgehammer moralizing. Would make an excellent addition to an anthology collection of shorts in the same vein. The greatest thing about an anthology movie is that each story can get in, say its piece, and get out without overstaying its welcome. Even if a bad story comes along, you know you're not going to have to suffer for more than twenty minutes -- half hour tops. Compare that with a two-hour stinker. Tomorrow's Bacon, I think, may actually be too short!

It ended just as I was getting sucked in. 'Bacon' is a very professional looking product, and the acting is never embarrassing or self-conscious (sometimes actors in cheesy horror films act as if they are in cheesy horror films). The folks here seem to be giving it their best shot. Also, the concluding shot is effective and give the film more after the screen fades to black. In other words, this is 'old school' horror that will really strike a chord with the viewer, much like Rod Serling's 'Twilight Zone' or 'Night Gallery' episodes.
