Dialog
Plot
Tales from the Darkside: The Movie is based on the anthology television series Tales from the Darkside. It is a collection of three supernatural horror stories all equally entertaining and all equally frightening. Being directed by George A. Romero, this could’ve easily been intended as Creepshow 3, which, at some point, has been rumored but never confirmed.
Segment one tells the story of three graduates who meddle with an old enchanted sarcophagus on campus and awaken an evil mummy. Segment two is about an old man who hires a hit man to take care of a black cat that has been terrorizing him for years. The last segment is about a man who meets a gargoyle-like monster that forces him to swear he’ll never tell anyone about his encounter.
The wraparound segment is shocking but oh so amusing. It is about a paperboy who was kidnapped by a cannibal woman, as we learn, and tells her stories from a book; the three segments, in order to delay supper time. Tales from the Darkside: The Movie is one of the best horror anthology films out there. It has significant production value and it is written and directed with great talent.
