Editorial Reviews

The directorial debut of 15-year old horror sensation Johnny Dickie, Slaughter Tales is a loving tribute to the no-budget horror video revolution of the 1980s. A teenager steals a mysterious VHS tape and finds himself tormented by the spirits that are trapped inside the tape and the horrible film within. Ignoring all warnings, he pops the tape in. What follows is a 90-minute fever dream horror anthology, where each story is worse than the last. But is this teen living out the worst story of them all? Slaughter Tales is more than a bad movie, it is a video nightmare you can't escape!

Slaughter Tales is a very indy release, but it has heart. It's an anthology horror on the lowest budget available. Give it a chance if you like shot on video horror and if you can take a lot of swearing.

This no-budget feature from writer-director-star Johnny Dickie begins as we meet a young boy who steals a VHS tape and heads home to uncover the ghoulish delights. A horror fan, he expects this to be the worst horror movie he's ever seen. He might even secretly HOPE this is the worst horror movie he's ever seen.

Before he can pop the tape into his VCR, he is confronted by a ghost that warns him about the tape. After being scared for a second, he pretty much tells the ghost to leave and begins the decent into horror movie badness. What follows is an anthology film unlike any anthology film I've ever seen. Filled with fake trailers, some amusing Grindhouse nods, and some of the strangest horror tales this side of the 80′s...

Slaughter Tales is...umm...interesting. This is the kind of strange SOV style horror that just isn't made today. I admire the passion behind the production from Dickie who does just about everything in this production and it is obvious from beginning to end that he is an extreme fan of the genre. Some of the tales work better than others and, at 91 minutes, the film does feel a bit on the padded side. Nonetheless, the Troma level of energy and excitement kept me consistently entertained. Filled with just about every bodily fluid imaginable, it is never anything less than cheerily revolting. I wouldn't be surprised if this is the best worst movie I see all year.

Slaughter Tales isn't going to be a film for everyone, especially those who have little to no knowledge of the SOV horror titles it takes inspiration from. But, the film is a perfect example at how dedication and enthusiasm can overcome limitations caused by a shoestring budget. I can honestly say that with the state that horror is in these days, Johnny Dickie's horror opus offers more originality and a true admiration for the genre that is lacking in the horror films released by major studios these days.
