When a trendy young couple enter a quaint-looking antiquarian bookstore seeking a present for their friend, they find more than they bargained for. A mysterious shopkeeper takes them into the world of his books, leading them through four amazing stories. What happens next they could never have imagined!Written by
I saw this movie at the Temecula Valley Film Festival and I was truly blown away. Adam West was charismatic yet creepy as the bookstore owner and the segments each had their own unique flair. In addition to solid acting and directing, the movie had an impressive score, sets, wardrobe and cinematography, which added to my shock of the shoestring budget. The film's title conjures up images of such cult classics as "Tales From The Crypt " and "Tales From the Darkside," from which it does contain elements, but I'd say it felt more like a series of well-crafted psychological dramas with a paranormal twist. With a bevy of time travel, bizarre dream sequences, and even a touching story about a prizefighter, this flick's definitely got something for everyone. Looking forward to seeing this thing again on DVD, TV, or theaters soon.
