10 short Halloween stories by various directors all linked together by narrator / radio host Adrienne Barbeau in a nice nod to her character in John Carpenter’s The Fog. Highlights for me include the first story in which the babysitters tell a young kid a horror story. Don’t eat all you candy always leave some for Sweet Tooth. I also enjoyed the two neighbours trying to out do each other with their displays only to end badly.
The titles of the stories are:
- Sweet Tooth
- The Night Billy Raised Hell
- The Weak and the Wicked
- Grim Grinning Ghost
- Ding Dong
- This Means War
- Friday the 31st
- The Ransom of Rusty Rex
- Bad Seed
I won’t go through them as I think it’s better to simply watch them as they are after all short stories. All done in a nice comedy way meaning if your not keen on one you will probably like the next one.
Decent acting ensures you will enjoy at least some of these Halloween tales.
Direction / Style
Hit and miss but there’s something for everyone, so a pretty good effort.
The main theme is by Lalo Schifrin and is perfect for the comedy nature they were clearly looking for.
Conclusion – Tales of Halloween Film Review (2015)
This is a very easy light hearted series of Halloween tales nicely put together. I’m sure you will find something here you will enjoy. It all moves along at fair pace.
