NOT BAD...
10 January 2001 | by youngjacob_2000See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie,for a horror film it can pass as good.A little boy can't sleep,so his uncle tells him three scary bedtime stories.My favorate was little red riding hood,about a murderer that stalks this girl after briefly meeting her in a store.When she gets home she finds her grandmother murdered,and "Oh what big teeth you half!"she says.I thought the first and third story were boring.Scott Valentine stars in this movie and he's done alot better.He played Nick on family ties.Catherine De Prume played Goldi Lox.Like I said,this movie can pass for a good film.A little strange,but don't let that ruin your fun.Does anyone know why Michael Mesmer who played Uncle Mike has never made any other movies?
