I'm kind of ashamed I liked this one...
22 February 2001 | by venuswickedSee all my reviews

Okay, so I watched it because the Masterson brothers are too cute for words and Eric Roberts is always a believable psycho (deliciously so) but I actually liked it!

Not entirely original (some of the stories were quite predictable) but fun nonetheless. The last story with Judd Nelson was definitely the best...and that ending actually made my jaw drop!

Might have been a bit edgier (and less predictable) if done by another channel (ahem, not necessarily MTV) and the reference to "Behind the Music" was pretty shameless, but overall an entertaining way to spend 90 minutes. Would probably make a good weekly series if they could push the envelope a bit more.

As a fan of "The Twilight Zone" I was impressed with how they put a rock and roll spin on some "classic" spooky stories and intriguing ideas about human nature and the supernatural.
