Very Entertaining Low Budget Film
26 March 2006 | by CMRKeyboadistSee all my reviews

It was many years ago that I saw this movie and I haven't seen it recently so I am working off of old memories here but I seem to remember that this was a fairly gory, low budget, short story movie with Gunnar Henson (Leatherface) telling the stories. The first story is an old classic about a guy and a girl in a car going out to a lovers lane type place. They get attacked by a man with a hook and you can probably guess the rest. The second story is about two guys who smoke too much weed and end up falling apart because of it (litterally). The second story is about a killer Santa Claus (always hilarious) and the last story is about a pirate looking for lost gold on an island filled with zombies. This was a rather entertaining film even if it is blatantly obvious that it was on almost no budget. I enjoyed it and I am sure if you took the time to look the movie up you will enjoy it also.
