Downhill after the first story
30 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

Late 80's anthology that has a woman telling scary bedtime stories to her young daughter. The first story follows a small platoon in the jungles of Vietnam as they encounter a horror other than the war. The second tale involves a group of college friends who decide to play a prank on a prudish girl they know from school. The third has the woman telling her daughter about what happened shortly after she and the girl's father were married.

The Vietnam segment is easily the best. It boasts a thick atmosphere and solid performances from it's four principle cast members (including Glenn Morshower of the cult comedy, "Drive-In"). It ends on an anticlimactic note, but is quite enjoyable otherwise. The second story starts off with a game of strip poker. That's pretty much the highlight, though, go figure, the hottest of the girls isn't the one who gets naked. The séance prank these geniuses come up with is poorly thought out and wouldn't fool even the most naive of idiots. As expected, the gag goes wrong, but in a really lame way. Bad special effects and a ridiculous ghostly voice further help to sink this segment. That said, the third bit is the weakest of the lot, as it tries it's hand at silly comedy. All of the jokes are incredibly obvious, so you'll see them coming a mile away. The finale is laughable, though not in the way intended.

Overall, a lower tier anthology effort. Not horrible, just nothing remotely special. The first story had potential, but the ending hurts it. The film itself starts with a rock band being approached to do the music for a horror movie, and we get various annoying musical interludes throughout, as well as that old cliché, outtakes during the end credits.
