Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Not an anthology in the fondly remembered tradition of Amicus, the company that brought us the original Tales from the Crypt, just one duff story ripped off from Night of the Living Dead. Billy Zane is the evil force who hounds an assortment of misfits trapped in a Texas motel in his search for an ancient talisman containing the blood of Jesus Christ. Crude sight gags and slimy schlock are accented over mordant humour in director Ernest R Dickerson's eager-to-please but flimsy fright-fest.
