This is a fun "Creepshow" like series of short stories, most star people you've seen before in other movies or what not and each of the stories are pretty adorable. The main story is about Debbie Harry who's a witch who's kidnapped a young boy (Lawrence). She's fattening him up (to cook him) and to stall he reads her stories which of course are the other three tales within. The next take is about a mummy exacting revenge which is more fun than the actual "Mummy (1999)" movie I think. The next is about an old man who puts a hit out on his cat, but the cat isn't about to take that sort of nonsense. Lastly there is a story about a gargoyle and an artist, it's pretty cute but likely my least favorite of the grouping. This was really fun to watch and I think it would suit both kids and adults seeking an easy to digest little series of tales.
