The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Horror legend Tom Holland (Child’s Play, Fright Night) dares you to join him for nine nerve-shredding, totally Twisted Tales. Serving up a mind-bending assortment of the macabre, it’s an anthology fine-tuned to keep you on the edge of your seat. A new drug offers users a glimpse of the future… with beastly consequences. A murderous husband is stalked by his own cell phone. A jilted lover wreaks satanic vengeance. The nightmarish action then leads to worlds haunted by dark magic, demonic possession, vampires, witches and more in this seriously freaky festival of fear. Features favorite genre stars including Danielle Harris (Rob Zombie's Halloween), William Forsythe (The Devil's Rejects, Boardwalk Empire), Ray Wise (X-Men: First Class), Sarah Butler (I Spit on Your Grave), A.J. Bowen (Hatchet 2) and more!
"Tom Holland's Twisted Tales" was originally a series that premiered on the internet last year not all ten episodes are put to DVD as an anthology.
With any anthology you are going to have some good stories and some not so good stories and the chances increase when you have an anthology with so many episodes like this one.
The list of stories is as follow:
Fred and His GPS
To Hell with You
Mongo's Magic Mirror
Pizza Man Part 1
Pizza Man Part 2
I am not going to go through each episode here because I do not want to ruin the film for those wanting to see it but in my opinion the film misses the mark. My two favorite episodes and the only two that stick out hours after watching them all is "Boom" and "Shockwave." There are a few others that are decent but with all the talent behind this I was expecting better. I do hope they do another season and bring on board some more notable actors because several of the stories suffer because of the poor acting.
There is enough good stuff here for me to recommend a look it to fans of horror but do not expect a whole lot going into it. This is average fare that could of been so much better.
You can order the DVD HERE.
