With its trio of warmed-over stories (a killer eye, some killer hair, even a boring old serial killer), this is an attempt by a pair of one-time horror auteurs to emulate the successful Tales from the Crypt formula, only now it's nowhere near as happening. Not content with exposing his directorial shortcomings in two of the segments (Hooper directs the third in equally average fashion), Carpenter also inflicts a half-assed imitation of Michael Keaton's Betelgeuse on his audience as he presents all three parts from a morgue. Made for cable with many has-beens from hell.
