Director: Michael Gornick
Main Stars: George Kennedy, Lois Chiles, Domenick John, Tom Savini, Dorothy Lamour, Daniel beer, Stephen King
Storyline: Another set of three tales of horror
Review (Spoils): Another set of horror tales from the comic book brought to the screen and lead by the crypt keeper. The first tale is called Old Chief Wood’nhead. This about a tale of a couple who owns a store in the desert near some native territory who are not doing so good with business. They keep a close relationship with the natives and they have a large wood statue of chief on there front porch. When the chief of the nearby tribe rewards them with special jewels the statue comes to life and becomes a protector. We learn this after a group of teens try to break into the store and we have hatchets and arrows flying.
The second tale is the best one of the series called The Raft. A very simple story of some teens who head out to the lake to smoke dope and come across a floating tar like spill that just happened to enjoy human flesh. A fun blob like story that involves some serious stickiness.
The last and final tale is called The Hitchhiker. This story is based around a woman who is not afraid of affairs and when racing back home to her husband she hits a road worker and leaves him for dead. Well it turns out he returns to haunt and thanking her for the ride.
Rating: The film itself could have used another story, three seemed a bit too short. The second tale is the best one which I believe was a Stephen King short to begin with. We have some nudity and we have some gore so cannot really complain.
