Deadtime Stories Volume 1: An Anthology film presented by George Romero. Three stories are told. The first is "Valley of the Shadow" about woman searching for her missing husband in a remote tribe's land. The second story "Wet" is about a man who digs up a mermaid body part and is warned to bury it back the way he found it for his own safety. The third tale, "House call", is about a doctor being called to the home of a desperate woman who believes her son is a vampire. Written by
A lot of the users responded poorly to the anthologies, judging by only the reviews, with many chastising Mr. Romero for such a poor crafting of a horror movie. And justifiably so, if only the actors, writers, directors, et al were experienced and knew their jobs inside and out. However, I am given, more and more, the impression that these segments feel like a finals project for film school. In that light, what with many people lacking mostly in experience, I am delighted with the results and look forward to seeing some names again far into the future. So, I am going with a seven out of ten, just to encourage some of these guys to keep at it and to make more (and increasingly better) horrors! And to keep George Romero at the odious job of seeking out raw and undeveloped talent from the masses attending art academies everywhere and giving them a leg up by the use of his name.
