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
comes this steaming mound of rotten amateur bargain bin trash,Ed Woods mouldy angora sweaters could produce better,actually this pointless sack of garbage probably woulda been better done by ed wood,having criswell doing the intros from his coffin would be far better than watching a sad old has-been acting like a grandfather from a Stephen king novel,attempting to scare the audience with little skits whose only shock value would be to the writer of them,when on hearing the finsihed product would have to ask what dark and powerful demon has infested my mind and guided my typewriter to such mind-numbing lows.
Anyway onto the "dead-time"stories...
the first one is about some dumb chick who throws a hissy fit and gets her even dumber crew killed,its not even as good as it sounds in the second episode a fat guy digs up bits of a mermaid after being advised by an insane antique dealer not to do,the inevitable ensues..
the third story gets a lot of praise from most reviewers,god knows why,its not as eye-gougingly terrible as the previous 2,but crap nonetheless.
there is a ray of hope though,for all you would-be screenwriters out there,just look at dead-time stories,it actually got made,someone pointed a camera and financed it,and as mind boggling as it may seem..it happened.
