This movie was really cheesy, the acting was pretty bad, but it's fun. I am not a GND fan, but I love a cheesy horror. There were three stories. The first is about a guy that brings home a scary homicidal doll that forms an infatuation on him. In the next story, Bridget Marguardt plays an over-the-hill actress who encounters a horrible fate when she tells her agent that she will take the last roll on Earth as long as the check clears. The third story reminded me of some of the older slasher movies that I grew up on such as When a Stranger Calls. It involves three girls that make prank phone calls and overhear a murder. Because they forgot to block their number, the killer called them back and told them that he would kill them if they went to the cops. There isn't a lot of gore, it really isn't that scary, and the worst acting in the movie came from Bridget and Holly.

Upon reading the synopsis for the movie and watching the snippets featured in GND, I was hopeful--if still somewhat dubious given the cast of pretty women I have never heard of--that this feature would entertain me for the 100 minutes it promised. It has the potential to entertain if you: a) Don't take this seriously. b) Are not a horny male idiot expecting to see all sorts of nekked pseudo-lesbians "goring" themselves with sex (there is none) and c) Are not bothered and/or offended by some of the cast members' "bunny" affiliation. If that describes you, do read on! This movie was filmed on location at the Playboy Mansion and the Hollywood Castle with a good camera, so you do not have to endure 90+ minutes of crappy homemade video footage that you could have made yourself. The acting is what you would expect from a movie of this caliber. Some of the women really show potential to act in bigger movies (ex: Rebekah Kochan, Jean-Louise O'Sullivan) while some of the others (i.e. Bridget Marquardt and Jessica Lowe) should stick to being cute. The three plots are interesting, and the one featuring Bridget is certainly pretty to look at. There is a good twist at the end. With all said and done, this movie is not amazing, but not terrible, and much better fare than most low budget horror films. I would recommend renting it before shelling out the money if you're still uncertain, but if you're willing to take a chance and have a couple laughs at some one-liners ("she burned my hand... ON PURPOSE!!!" "We may be dead but you'll still be a loser!") then go ahead and buy it. Cheers.

Great production value but very disappointing with no nudity. How do you have a film with playmates and no nudity. I saw more nudity in the behind the scenes footage of the the making of this film on the "Girls next door" dvd.
Should have been a flesh fest but wasn't.

The Telling is a horror anthology that consists of a group of girls telling urban legends so they can be in an exclusive sorority of some sort. I was surprised at how good this movie is, but it wasn't amazingly good. The stories are surprisingly entertaining and quite original. The first one is probably the best due to the great acting, while the second one fails to entertain and the third is filled with cheesy suspense taken from an urban legend from the 60's but with a twist. If you're interested in this film to see Holly and Bridget then know that their acting was the worst in this film, especially Holly, which actually gets distracting. But for the most part, the movie isn't bad and deserves a rental.

Holly Madison and Bridget Marqueadt (both from E!'s THE GIRLS NEXT DOOR) star in this decent 2009 horror anthology. It is nowhere near as good as George A. Romero's CREEPSHOW, John Carpenter & Tobe Hooper's BODY BAGS or Roger Corman's TALES OF TERROR. Nicholas Carpenter and an uncredited Jeff Burr (LEATHERFACE: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE PART III, STEPFATHER 2, PUPPET MASTER 4 & 5, THE DEVIL'S DEN and PUMPKIN HEAD 2: BLOOD WINGS) direct this "different" kind of horror anthology. One story tells of an evil doll, the second story tells of an actress who will go to the extent to keep her youth and the third story telling about a group of girls pulling prank calls. My personal favorite part is the opening scene and the revenge at the end. I will keep it short and simple. I like the movie but I don't love it. 5 out of 5 star rating!

A horror movie filmed largely at the Playboy Mansion - and starring "Girls Next Door" babes Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt? Obviously, The Telling did not fall in my list of movies to be avoided. Somewhat to my surprise, though, the film turned out to be a real attempt at making a horror movie and not a flimsy excuse to show hot babes in various states of undress. In fact, there is no serious nudity to speak of - just some young women in bikinis and other quite flattering outfits. So, is The Telling scary? Not in the slightest. That being said, though, it really isn't all that bad of a movie. Some of the girls can actually act to some degree.

Due to a most unfortunate event that took place during the previous year's sorority initiation process, whatever school this is has applied ample brakes to the whole hazing process. It's just as well, as this year's crop of pledges to Omega Kappa Kappa is somewhat inferior. This sorority, you see, is made up of the most beautiful-and-we-know-it girls on campus, as personified by the sorority president, Stephanie (Holly Madison). This year's final three wannabes are, sadly, rather plain. Still, each of them has her shot at becoming a part of the Greek society devoted to "perfection without exception." All they have to do is tell a scary story that will send chills down the luscious spines of Stephanie and her horror-loving sisters. What follows are stories about a creepy, possessive little doll; an aging B-movie starlet babe who accepts a most unfortunate film role purely for the money; and three teens who hear something they should never have heard while making prank calls one night. The story of the sorority initiation process itself makes up a fourth story.
