Despite the fact that "No Such Thing as a Vampire" is set in the late Victorian era, quite modern electric light switches can be seen in the interior of the house. While electric lighting does date back to the 1880s, the switches in use at that time looked nothing like the switches seen in this house; toggle light switches (as seen in the film) had not been invented yet.

You lied, "Mommy!" Bobby didn't drown by accident. You knew that. Bobby drowned himself to get away from you. You see, Bobby didn't want to come back, "Mommy." No... Bobby hates you, "Mommy!" So he sent ME instead!

From Dan Curtis the creator of the Trilogy of Terror movies comes another horror anthology movie and it's best anthology (Of what I've seen) that he did, though that's not saying much.
The first tale stars Ed Begley Jr in a car themed time travel effort which is perfectly charming but certainly isn't a horror therefore out of place here.
The second stars Avengers (1961) leading man Patrick Macnee in a tale called "No Such Thing as a Vampire" but is there? Fairly clever stuff, though nothing to write home about.
The third tells the story of a woman who using the dark arts resurrects her dead son, but he doesn't come back quite the same. Interestingly Curtis remade this for Trilogy of Terror 2 scene for scene and unless I'm too much mistaken used the same audio track for the kid.
If you like the Trilogy of Terror films you may enjoy this, for me I found it very underwhelming.
First story is charming
First story isn't a horror
Ridiculous blood color
