Tom Holland's Twisted Tales


Production Year: 2013
Release Date: 03/18/2014
Studio: Image Entertainment

Tom Holland is responsible for one of the best vampire flicks of the 80's.  Fright Night would easily make my top ten vampire flicks of all time and while not quite as favored by yours truly, something must also be said for Child's Play and it's success.  Tom Holland is horror royalty and sadly Twisted Tales is his latest release.

During 2013 and in conjunction with FEARNET the director helmed 9 horror shorts that would eventually air on the horror themed network.  Thanks to Image Entertainment these 9 films are now available on DVD for the first time.  Presented as an "anthology" this time around, if you pop this release in be sure to have your remote within an arm's reach as you might have a bit of trouble getting through all of them.  While there are a few winners in the pack, the quality really varies with a majority of them being on the not-so-good side.



What's that?  Sure, I'd be more than happy to break it down for you.

The Good

Shockwave
The Pizza Guy

The Bad

Fred & His GPS
Cache
To Hell with You

The Ugly

Mango's Magick Mirror
Bite
Boom
Vampire's Dance


Each short is a mixed bag typically filled with cliches and bad acting.  Bite was one that started off interesting with a good concept but it soured pretty quick...The bad CGI, that was just the cherry on top.  To Hell with You was one that should have been much better.  Sporting the talent of William Forsythe and Danielle Harris it should have been great, but unfortunately it was just hard to watch.  Of the pack it was the incredibly campy The Pizza Guy that held my attention.  Featuring a demonic book and a surfer-dude pizza delivery guy that might be an evil jinn, it was a fun ride that kept me guessing.  The other one that held my interest was Shockwave which had a pretty good performance from horror regular Angela Bettis.  The rest of 'em?  There is unfortunately not much to talk about.


The disc does feature a handful of extras, thankfully two of them are dedicated to the best shorts.

The Making of Cache (06:56)

The Making of the Pizza Guy (15:36)


If you happened to catch The Pizza Guy and Shockwave when they ran on FEARNET you've really got no reason to track down this release.  It really pains me to say that too, Holland is a viable genre director who is responsible for some true classics;  The shorts however, they really miss the mark.
