Screamtime (1983)

1st View
Format: Netflix WI
Venue: Rivendell

The Good: It always makes me happy to discover an unseen anthology horror film, even if it's as bad as this abomination. In the first segment there is some creepy sound work...that's about all I got.

The Bad: Take your pick. The framing device is a couple of doucebags from Brooklyn stealing videotapes from a store and watching them, the segments are all half-assed and terrible, the lighting consists of one guy with a standard size maglite, etc, etc, etc.

The Weird: It's weird that someone actually handed over money to make this film. But to be more specific, there is a moment in the final segment wherein a man is attacked by a dwarf dressed as a lawn gnome. Yup.

Rating: 1/10 Atkins
