No. Not Scary.... Or Die Of Boredom
When it comes to horror movies (be they low-budget, or not), Scary Or Die (SOD, for short) was just plain dull & dumb! (And, it certainly wasn't in the least bit scary. No... But, gory? Yes!... But, not scary!? - Ha! Don't make me laugh)
And, speaking about having any potential racial barriers, SOD appeared to have none.... OK! Let's see - In the city of Los Angeles there were both Black & Mexican blood-lusting zombies - There were dead-faced Chinese ghosts and blood-thirsty Oriental vampires - There were re-animated Caucasians (as pieced together corpses) - And, last but not least, there were Black psycho-clowns with infectious bites.
(And, I still don't understand why the hell Emmett didn't go to a doctor after he'd been bitten)
I found SOD to be the sort of typical, brain-dead slop from the horror movie genre that comes across like its stories were all made up as they went along (which they probably were), and that goes double for all of its dimwitted dialogue.
If you ask me, when it comes to the likes of these horror story anthologies, SOD made 1982's Creepshow look worthy of an Oscar comparison. It really did!
Yes. Indeed. SOD was a total dud from start to finish. If this is supposed to be the direction in which horror movies are going, then all I can say is "#%&@#!!", or, better yet "Zzzzzzzz!"
P.S. - SOD also lost itself some major points for its blatant product placement of "Marlboro" cigarettes.
