Better Than the First
12 October 2012 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

***I'm not sure what's up with the listing on IMDb but this review is for the second film in the two part series. Why IMDb has this listed as the first is beyond me (and you'll notice this "first" listed has a release date two years after the second film).

Deadtime Stories Vol. 2 (2011)

** (out of 4)

George A. Romero lends his name and image to this anthology horror film, which tells three different stories by three different directors. In "The Gorge," (Dir: Matt Walsh) three friends go exploring in a cave when they get trapped there. When two of them come out they are suffering from something strange. "On Sabbath Hill" (Dir: Jeff Monahan) has a married college professor thinking he's gotten lucky when the student he knocked up kills herself but this is just the start of his problem. "Dust" (Dir: Michael Fischa) has a laboratory creating a dust that can heal sick people and a security guard there uses it on his dying wife. It returns her to life and their sex life comes back but there's one major side effect. DEADTIME STORIES VOL. 2 is actually an improvement over the earlier film as all three stories here are quite interesting even if none of them are completely successful. The first film starts off a little uneven but it finally picks up thanks in large part to the very gory death scenes. It's pretty easy to figure out what's going on but even when you pick up on the twist the ending is still quite good. The second story is also quite predictable but it was still entertaining in ways. Once again we get some rather gory scenes that help keep things moving along and there are even a couple good twists along the way. Finally, the third film is pretty fun, although I think it might have worked better had it not taken itself so seriously. As it moves along you realize what's happening but this doesn't take away too much. Overall, all three stories are decent but none of them are going to rank up there with the best anthology films. The performances are about average for this type of film but the lack of any real scares is the major downfall. The saddest thing is seeing Romero obviously just picking up a paycheck with his really bad introductions and comments after the films. The one-liners are just really embarrassing and it's too bad Romero is doing this and unable to get funding for directing pictures.
