Horror Flick of the Week: ‘Tales from the Darkside: The Movie (1990)’

I feel like maybe a lot of people would disagree about this, but honestly…I enjoyed this movie a lot more than Creepshow. Don’t get me wrong, Creepshow is awesome, and the framing structure with the animations were pretty freaking cool. Yet…as a kid…Creepshow didn’t put me through the roller coaster ride of emotions this movie did. Each story really does have its own awesome appeal, the cast is great, the writers are awesome…

The fact that the framing story to this is a Hansel and Gretel-esque tale with a witch preparing to cook a little boy to serve at her supper party makes this an absolutely delicious watch for the Halloween season, and I think it does the series it’s associated more than justice (in fact, it’s actually considered a spiritual successor to Creepshow, too.) I can’t praise this movie enough. For the love of god, if you haven’t seen it yet, watch it this year as soon as humanly possible.
