A movie that - in theory - could've passed muster as rejected Tales From The Crypt flick. The movie is three separate stories with an overall framing sequence set in a Bates Hotel ripoff The sequence doesn't really make sense though they obviously needed something to keep the movie organized. Each story itself would've had some redeeming quality but the director went with the cheap route going with blood, gore, and cheap SFX. The first one is probably the 'best' of the three. The second one shows its cards too early to be of interest. The last one is of the "kids run out of gas and find a place" variety which manages to throw a history twist and but then goes straight into the dumpster halfway in.
This movie could've been a WHOLE lot better and that's the real waste here (and why the movie gets only a 3).
