Written and directed by Jim and Ken Wheat. Starring Marg Helgenberger.
Plot: A college professor discusses the psychology of fear with his students by telling them a few scary stories.
First story: The Old Dark House – A couple gets stranded on a dark road and a big surprise is coming to them. DJ said that this is the reason he doesn’t like surprises.
Second story: A Night On the Town – It’s a dog eat people kind of world sometimes. Message: don’t go into a bad neighborhood and act fucking stupid.
Third story: All Night Operator – A telephone operator gets really creepy phone calls from a stranger. It’s sort of a “When A Stranger Calls” like story, but we think this ending is cooler. This was our favorite story of the three.
The wraparound story, Allison’s story, unfortunately sucked. They gave us a few decent horror stories and then they tie them together with bullshit. It’s a shame. It would have received a higher score if it was done more successfully.
It was a decent movie. Nothing spectacular, but worth a watch if you have some time to kill.
We agree on this score: 54/100
