• I loved this movie. I am a big fan of the whole "tales" type of movies and i thought that this film had a great way of taking four horror stories and giving them an urban twist. Clarence Williams III is hillarious and spooky as mortician Simms and David Alen Grier who is mostly known for his comedic talents gives a frightful performance as an abusive stepfather. Of the 4 tales told int the film i mostly enjoyed "Boys Do Get Bruises" which offered an interesting way of dealing with child abusive by showing how a "monster" doesn't necesarily look like one. The other story i enjoyed was the final one: "Hard Core Covert" which gives an eerie look at racial and gang related violence. The other two stories which mostly dealed with racism and corruptness were good although predictable and kind of slow but were still entertaining. A somewhat suprise ending was well done and this remains as one of the best horror films of the "teen slasher" filled 90's genre. FINAL RATING: ****/*****
