Trivia

Revenge of the 80's: The very bad horror films.
1 July 2004 | by Captain_CouthSee all my reviews

Deadtime Stories (1987) was an omnibus of tales. A very cheaply made film "starring" Scott Valentine. The tales aren't all that (two of them reek whilst the other was trying to hard to be a black comedy) and the wrap around segments felt as if they were hastily put together. Maybe if the writing was better and the acting wasn't so mediocre, it could have been something (i.e. entertaining). As it stands, it's an okay movie. I wouldn't go out of my way to watch it. However, if it's showing on t.v. late at night and you're having a hard time trying to catch some zzzz, give this one a chance. A hit or miss film. You'll either enjoy it or curse me the day I ever mentioned it.

Fair.

Check out red riding hood. She's a real hot number!
