R | | Comedy, Fantasy, Horror
An anthology which tells five terrifying tales inspired by the E.C. horror comic books of the 1950s.
In "The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill", the movie playing on Jordy's television in the background is A Star Is Born (1937), according to George A. Romero's commentary on the UK DVD special edition.
Where's... my cake? I... want... my... cake! Where's my cake, Bedelia? Where's my Father's Day cake? I want my cake you dirty BITCH! I'm going to have it!
Nathan Grantham: BEDELIA! It's Father's Day! Where's my cake? You promised me my cake! Bedelia, I'm your father ...
In the segment "Father's Day", Sylvia tells the other family members that every Father's day since Nathan Grantham's death 7 years ago, Aunt Bedelia comes to visit his grave. Now supposedly the events in this segment take place in 1982. This should put Nathan's death in 1975. However, the date of death carved on Nathan's grave stone says 1972, a full 9 to 10 years ago depending on the exact date of death.
The directorial credits are shown twice: During the opening credits and again during the closing credits.
One version aired on cable eliminated the 5th segment (They're Creeping Up On You) thus making "Special Guest Star" E.G. Marshall's credit a mystery.
