Format: DVD
This DVD has a five short films. Think British-Indie-B-horror-movies. A group of friends each tell a different horror story, each declaring their tale of gore is even worse.

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...

Fright fans, rejoice: thrills have been found again.

"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.

A lot of great horror stories here in one neat package. I watched one every night, and had great fun doing so. My favorite one is about the girl who has to be an amputee to feel like a whole person...now THAT's crazy.

This is a nifty little horror film that consists of several shorter films framed by a group of British young adults getting together on Halloween night to party and scare each other with DVDs they've brought--sort of a Canterbury Tales of blood, gore and fear. There's a great deal of energy and inventiveness here, but nobody will confuse these shorts with the slick Hollywood variety. On the other hand, the filmmakers have obviously seen a lot of films, and aren't shy about borrowing. If you're a big horror buff, you'll appreciate the references; if not, you may just have the vague feeling you've seen this before. The tales don't exactly have conclusions sometimes, just endings, which was an interesting, non-traditional choice, I think. I recommend this as an example of what you can do on a limited budget with an ensemble group of actors and filmmakers and a ton of effort and imagination.
