Somewhat Peachy/ Excellent
27 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

At the beginning of this film I noticed that title itself was part of the reason that I watched it. The first the story was about a young man(Ed Begley j.r.) whose auto mobile is stolen, but he later purchases another vehicle that is possessed.

The second story is about a doctor (Patrick Macnee) who takes care of a patient who has a brush with death. However to his assumption he believes that a vampire was responsible for the problem of his patient. He soon invites an old friend (Horst Bucholz). He drugs him and pits falsely accuses him of being a vampire which leads him to have a stake driven through his heart.

The final story is about a mother (Anjanette Comer) whose son Bobby (Lee Montgomery) accidently drowns in a lake but she makes a pact to have her son come back from the dead. He is revived, but he is not the child that he used to be.

The first story was kinda off, the second story was merely confusing, and the third story was very frightening.
