Sometimes you just need a little silly. And this will fill that need. OK, a bit of squishy-silly. Tales From the Crypt was an entertaining, if predictable show and this movie offering is cut from the same cloth, though with upscale f/x. They even start with a new level of tongue-in-cheek.
The story is nothing particularly surprising, or worth writing about, but the cast is a collection of folks, several of which hadn’t quite hit their popularity. There is even one uncredited cameo that was a hoot. To a one, the cast commit without reservation to the story and the style, which is what makes a movie like this work. Zane is especially fun in his role.
For a distraction on stormy night with a bowl of popcorn–or even an afternoon when you need to laugh and grimace, you can’t go wrong.
