The first has a necrophiliac (Return of the Living Dead’s Clu Gulager) who gets a surprise nine months after he rapes his co-worker’s corpse when her zombie baby comes looking for it’s “daddy”. In the second tale, a criminal (Weekend at Bernie’s Terry Kiser) forces a simple swamp dweller into giving him the secret of eternal life, but of course there’s a price to pay. In the next story, a glass eating carnie tries to find happiness with a young girl, but their love is put to the test when the evil carnival owner/voodoo priestess (Rosalind Cash) makes all the glass, screws and razors he ate over the years rip out of him during a make out session. (Talk about coitus interruptus!) In the final tale, Cameron Mitchell (also in Night Train to Terror) stars as a Union soldier during the Civil War who gets captured by some cannibalistic Confederate kiddies who like to play “Pin the Arm on the Torso”.
Director Jeff (Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3) Burr lets the tension build slowly and manages to give each tale a satisfying payoff. The seasoned cast (especially Price, Gulager and Mitchell) really sell it and there are a few memorable scares. Producer Darin Scott also produced the equally fun horror anthology movie, Tales from the Hood.
AKA: The Offspring.
