| Mixed bag
Three stories courtesy of John Carpenter and Tobe Hooper, sounds like it can't miss, right? The results are mixed, but pretty interesting all the same.

The Gas Station is vintage Carpenter. Here he maximizes the effect from a truly simple premise and creates a genuinely scary story. It's simple, but the final minutes are riddled with tension and general uneasiness. The best of the bunch.

Hair is a truly funny story with a terrific performance by Stacy Keach. It goes way over the top towards the end, but still, it's highly amusing for the most part.

Eye, the weakest of the three, due to it's complete and utter predictability and complete failure of generating any real chills. It's fun to see Hamill and it's pretty gory but that's about it.

One terrific story, one pretty good and one pretty bad, all in all, it's worth watching but it's nothing spectacular.

Trivia

The last story in The movie "Body Bags" is entitled "Eye," and the story has a particularly strange personal connection to both lead actors Mark Hamill and Lesley Lawson (better known as the model "Twiggy"). In "Eye" Mark Hamill is a minor league baseball player who crashes his car and loses his right eye, and Lawson plays his wife. In 1977, Hamill crashed his car in real life and required seven hours of reconstructive surgery to his face, leaving his appearance noticeably changed in the movie "Return of the Jedi." Lesley Lawson's first husband In real life was actor Michael Whitney. Before he started his acting career Whitney played for the Hornell Dodgers and the Great Falls Electrics, both minor league baseball teams.


Quotes

The Coroner: Natural causes... Natural causes... Natural causes... I hate natural causes! Give me a big stab wound to poke at and then I'm happy.


Goofs

When the dead Coroner is being cut open by one of the Morgue's attendants, he lifts his head up in a comical spoof. Yet the other attendant who fetched the coffee was coming back, and despite looking at his direction didn't see the coroner move.


Alternate Versions

The English VHS Tape from "Polygram" is 100% uncut. The "4 Front Video" Version is cut (Bill gets crushed by the car scene).
