Firstly this was a made-for-tv movie which is rather surprising if you've actually seen the content within. The first tale reads like an ordinary Twilight Zone episode that isn't very exciting, it's about an old car that gets restored and takes the driver back in time. Nothing much really happens and it's far from a horror tale, just sort of whimsical I suppose. The next one was rather adorable, it was about a Woman who was afraid of Vampires. She was convinced they were biting her neck, and nobody seems to be able to find the culprit. Of course something bigger is going on but I'm not about to spoil it for you! Lastly is the reason for watching this, the real horror piece and one heck of a memorable story it is! A woman's son is drowned, so she goes through some demonic ceremony and demands her son's return. Of course she doesn't get what she bargained for but it is one memorable tale that every horror fan should see. Fortunately this anthology has recently been put out on DVD so hopefully this gets rediscovered by horror fans, it's definitely worthwhile!
