The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Tales From the Dead (2008)


Director: Jason Cuadrado

Premise:
An anthology film with four stories focusing on how greed can lead to evil which follows us into death.

My Take:
Above all else I found this movie a boring. Perhaps on a different day it would have been better as the acting was decent and so were the stories. 
The wrap around story deals with a  hitchhiking medium. 
The first story is about a family who purchases a house, haunted by the spirits of a murdered family with a connection them.
The second story is about an accountant who attempts to take money from the Yakuza.
The third story has a salesman offering more moments in time with a past lover to a loser in exchange for a contract taking time away from his life.
The fourth story is about a group of wives who murder their wealthy husbands.

Rating: Warning (but watchable)
