In Chapter Three - The Benediction, a 1970 Chevelle Malibu 4-door sedan is used in several scenes (rear bumper with square taillights), and the car which is totalled before the segment ends is a 1972 model (rear bumper with 4 round taillights). The 1970 Chevelle used in the film has a front grille from a 1972 model, headlights from a 1971/72 (1970 Chevelles had 4 headlights up front), and turn signal lenses from a 1971. See more »

Thanks to good writing and excellent casting choices, this is (imho) the best of the "horror serial" movies popularized in the 1980's by films like "Creepshow." Some genuinely creepy moments and quality acting make for an excellent ride, although the first of the four stories is basically a throwaway. The special effects could be better, but this was the early 80's after all. Watch it at night after 1AM for best effect.
