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?

A slightly better than average horror anthology.
29 July 2013 | by michaelb84See all my reviews

Horror anthologies are largely a mixed bag. For every spectacular Tales From the Darkside or Creepshow there is a horrible (and often British) movie like Tales That Witness Madness to drag the genre down.

The first story is a mediocre haunted house tale that didn't really impress me.

The second was about four girls who end up in a bad neighborhood and terrorized by a gas station attendant and three killer dogs. I liked this story and felt that the characters were generally interesting and intelligent, bad choices aside.

The final story is about a telephone operator who is terrorized by a psychopathic stalker. This one was pretty good as well.

The wraparound story is interesting and generally more involved than most other anthologies. It is arguably better than the stories themselves, aside from the ending which I won't spoil.
