User Reviews

The acting is scarier than the film itself
20 October 2002 | by sorannoSee all my reviews

This film succeeds....in being an excruciating exercise in testing one's amounts of viewing paitence. This 1989 MGM release is one of the few major studio releases in the horror anthology genre and one of the weakest too. Several past and future TV stars (including Marg Helgenberger from "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation") shine some light on some otherwise dark and dull proceedings. Helgenberger is the only bright spot here.
