Quotes

Prof. Edward Derek (segment "Allison's Story"): If I told you a monster would break through that wall and tear your heads off, that wouldn't frighten you, because a lifetime of experience tells you that couldn't possibly happen. But if I told you I was going to reach into my bag, take out a gun, put it against someone's head and blow their brains out, that would frighten you.
Russ (segment "Allison's Story"): Yeah, right.
Prof. Edward Derek (segment "Allison's Story"): That doesn't frighten you?
Russ (segment "Allison's Story"): Of course not! Because I know that THAT would never happen.
Prof. Edward Derek (segment "Allison's Story"): -removes revolver from satchel- Does this change the way you think?

The thing that makes this anthology movie stand apart is how the stories are done.
28 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

Not the best horror anthology in the world it is interesting in one aspect...using a class in fear be the set up for the stories. Basically, a professor with a very unorthodox way of teaching has to invite those willing to a special story telling event at his house or something. Been awhile since I saw this one, so I am not all that clear about the details. They mainly have to go to his house thanks to a very shaky first day of class where the professor proceeds to show everyone how nuts he is. Well they go and exchange stories, the first one being about a couple stranded near an old house that looks typical, but has the best ending of the three stories presented. The next story has these girls getting stranded in the wrong part of town and being terrorized by a guy and his Doberman. Granted, nothing really special about it overall, but it did make for the most tense story of the three and my favorite. The final one for the most part is highly forgettable to say the least. I only remember a woman who has some sort of answering service and there was no being stranded involved here, though the female did have a bum ankle. Then the movie wraps up in a somewhat interesting and somewhat absurd fashion. Not the best, but it is entertaining enough to pass the time quite nicely.
