Plot Summary

Five tales of terror are presented. The first deals with a demented old man returning from the grave to get the Father's Day cake his murdering daughter never gave him. The second is about a not-too-bright farmer discovering a meteor that turns everything into plant-life. The third is about a vengeful husband burying his wife and her lover up to their necks on the beach. The fourth is about a creature that resides in a crate under the steps of a college. The final story is about an ultra-rich businessman who gets his comeuppance from cockroaches. Written by Todd A. Bobenrieth

Trivia While he was all business in his scenes, Leslie Nielsen had a fart machine in his pocket during the shooting. He would let it go off during rehearsals, and just before Director George A. Romero would call "Action!", causing Ted Danson and the crew to crack up with laughter. See more »
Goofs Before he is slapped in the Prologue segment, Billy (Joe Hill) already has red slap marks painted on his face. See more »
