In the segment "The Range" Col. Cain, Billy, Skillet Bob and Isabelle run down the hill into camp. This comes directly from a scene in The Wizard of Oz (1939) when the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, the Lion and Dorothy are walking along the Yellow brick road. See more »
"Slices" is supposed to be some kind of homage to the "Tales Of The Crypt" short stories. There have been a lot of horror movies which features several creepy tales like "Creepshow", "Body Bags", "House On Terror Tract" and the recent "Trick 'r Treat". I liked them all, with the exception of the godawfull "Creepshow III". "Slices" is unfortunately just as bad as "Creepshow III": all of the five stories are different have a lot in common: bad acting, bad lightning, stupid stories. The budget must have been extremely low: there are no real actors and there was no money for special effects (well, it's meant to be a horror movie after all).
The first story is nothing more than a very uninspired and boring torture scene where the "story" makes no sense at all. The second one has a woman return from the grave thanks to an old type writer. The third one has vampires, the fourth one is set in the wild west. The final tale actually has some potential at the beginning but again; stupid and disappointing with awful bad acting.
Is there something remotely positive about this total failure ? Well, the artwork is good, unfortunately that's what tricks you into this mess (it worked on me..)
