more black comedy then horror
5 June 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

The strenght of the Masters Of Horror series is the fact that it can go from black comedy to ultra violence or a pure gorefest. This entry made by John Landis is one that can be watched by the whole family. There is no gore to spot or nudity and it never really becomes frightening.

George Wendt (Harold) takes the main lead as the ultra friendly neighbour but of course he's got a dark side. he is in fact a murderer and takes the flesh from his victims so he can add the skeletons in his house as family. When the new neighbours move in, David and Celia, Harold develops a crush on Celia. He wants her bones to give it a place in his house. But are the new neighbours there by coincidence?

Some parts are funny and the opening combined with the score is sublime. Okay, it's full CGI but it works. It's a pretty funny episode with some hilarious situations but to say it's horror that would be overestimated. It's not that bad at all but I can understand that the lovers of for example PELTS will turn this off. Family could have been a story for the Tales From The Crypt series.
