Basic no frills horror tales
17 January 2020 | by omendataSee all my reviews

Interweaved tales of horror with not much imagination or scares to be honest.

I am still waiting for someone to bring out a series of tales as good as they were done by Hammer horror studios 50 years ago but it seems with the oodles of CGI and money we just do not seem to be able to accomplish what we did all those years ago.

Where are the writers with imagination and directors who know how to weave the stories together - Tales Of The Unexpected and Tales From The Crypt still have 100% more imagination, scares and a twist in the tale than anything I have seen lately and this movie whilst filmed well and has a few moments just sinks into the mediocre minefield of stinkers - Best walk around and avoid this one!
