Mermaids & Men
12 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

'Lindemann's Catch' - Stuart Whitman plays a cantankerous fisherman who one day catches a real mermaid, and falls in love with her. Due to a dirty trick of magic, his wish for her to become human comes only partly true... Well acted tale has a nice nautical feel to it and a tragic end.

'A Feast Of Blood' - Norman Lloyd plays a middle-aged man trying to romance a reluctant woman(played by Sondra Locke). When she rebukes him, he takes the rejection badly and sends out a nasty method of revenge... Scary if gruesome tale.

'The Late Mr. Peddington' - A woman plots her husband's funeral a bit too early... The sudden ending provides a real jolt and visual punch line. Quite funny if dark.
