Tales From The Dead
Top Customer Reviews
Less is More was particularly gruesome at the end as a woman who was always obsessed with being an amputee gets her wish. It made my stomach a bit queasy.
Wolf Cry was my favorite. A 19 year old wannabe filmmaker who lives in his head and sees everyone and everything around him as monsters and other scary creatures is forced by his single mother to do better in school and get a job. As this short story progresses he can't seem to control his imagination and everywhere he looks there are ghouls after him. In the end it has some deadly results! Since I tend to have a very vivid imagination I could really identify with this young man in some ways.
In the final part of the film, Cromwell's Curse, the group talks about a local haunted house and the curse centered on it. Is it all just fiction? Or could it be real? The group soon finds out...
"Tales of the Dead: Grim Stories of Curses, Horror and Gore" is an exploration of suspense. Divided into four vignettes, the film offers a variety of Halloween pleasures--each certain to impress those craving more than the standard cinema fare.
In this meet of multiple genres (each story chronicles a different element of horror, from the paranormal to the all too real) viewers will be offered a relentless pace and satisfying conclusions. The film does not falter as it changes tones and characters. It instead generates intrigue. This marks it unique among the typical plots. There are no tedious interludes or wasted moments. There is instead simply tension. It allows each individual to remain captivated; and this is a rarity.
What is not so rare, however, is the one flaw "Tales of the Dead" bears: its special effects. Like so many of its kind the film is limited by a too tiny budget. This forces occasionally laughable results and poorly constructed attempts at terror.
Those attempts are not enough to ruin the experience, however. While they may cause the viewer a momentary regret, they will still be countered by efficient storytelling and convincing acting--which offers far more than mere effects.

This is a cheesy, B-movie-style collection of scary stories, the kind told around the camp fire or while waiting for the next batch of trick-or-treaters. Read morePublished on October 31, 2010 by Elaine
