So this is pretty much the sequel to "Tales From The Crypt" and again it's based upon the comics and the comics titled "Vault of Horror". This time we have another five tales that are relatively entertaining but they just can't compare to the other film I'm afraid. This time a group in an elevator drops down to this strange table set up with drinks. They all sit and reminisce about their disturbing dreams together. One is an odd tale about a jerk who winds up in a vampire bar. The second is about a neat freak who annoys his wife to the point where she gets revenge. Then we have a tale about an insurance scheme to fake a death, and the other friend was to bail him out. Of course things don't go quite as planned. Lastly there is a tale of voodoo and an artist's revenge which was definitely the best in the lot. Easy enough to sit through but the tales just aren't as awesome as they could have been.

Availability:  On DVD
