All Three Are Fun
17 November 2016 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I've seen too many of these things, so I am not easily surprised. These are pretty average. The first involves a man who successfully plots to kill his uncle, but the uncle is a dabbler in black magic and, well, you know things are going to be tough at best. The second involves a man who is drawn to a kind of fin de siecle casino where he wins a fortune. Unfortunately, the people who run the place are not very friendly to big winners. The third involves a man who has a secret, a violent secret. He ends up in a kind of wax museum and spends time with the curator. There is the obligatory twist at the end of each. It is remindful of the series "Night Gallery," where Rod Serling would introduce paintings that told a brief story. Sometimes there were as many as four separate offerings. There are several wonderful character actors here and though predictable, it is quite atmospheric and well crafted.
