Very cheap, but entertaining
25 October 2002 | by Hellraiser-1See all my reviews

When I watched this movie three years ago at TV I thought it was going to be a turkey. that´s was perhaps the reason why I enjoyed it. This extremely cheap but effective movie is divided in several stories and I can remark specially two of them: "Satan Claus" a terrific Christmas story and one chapter in which a guy arrives to an island searching for a treasure and becomes the victim of a group of pirate zombies, but the other two stories are also funny and you can watch some gore here(not very much), so, what more can you expect? If you are a fan, rent it and you will have a lot of fun.
