Storyline

Daffy undead gal Penny Dreadful, her smitten zombie buddy Ned, and lycanthrope Wolfboy relate three tales of terror in an old rundown movie theater: A young couple find themselves being stalked by a lethal jack-in-the-box in "Slash-in-the-Box;" mousy young lady Alice tries to figure out what exactly happened to her last night in "The Morning After;" and a group of friends encounter an eccentric backwoods family after their van breaks down in the middle of nowhere in "The Slaughter House."

You're invited to the undead movie party...
20 February 2014 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"The Penny Dreadful Picture Show" was essentially a snooze fest wrapped up in an interesting packaging.

This is not really a movie as per se, but more something in the likes of "Creep Show" - an anthology of short stories if you will.

The opening segment of "Slash in the Box" was just downright embarrassing to watch. The story was non-existent and it was just toe-curling to witness.

On to the second segment which is titled "The Morning After", it is a vampire story unlike most others. That being said, then it was lacking conviction, impact and turned out to be just plain.

The last segment is titled "The Slaughter House", and that was actually the best of the entire experience. It was a nice treat to have Sid Haig and Jeffrey Combs appear in this segment. This sort of was like a low budget parody on "House of 1000 Corpses", whether intentional or not, I do not know. It wasn't particularly outstanding, but compared to the other two segments, then this was a bright star.

What made it actually interesting was the intermissions with Penny and the run down movie theater. There was really a nice feeling to this and a lot of details put into this.

The overall experience was less than mediocre. And for an addition to the horror vault, then "The Penny Dreadful Picture Show" was a fairly weak addition.
