Tales to make you fall asleep...
I had hoped that "Twisted Tales" would be something similar to the classics such as "Creep Show" or at least in that area. But I was in for a sore surprise.
While "Twisted Tales" does follow in the likeness in terms of short stories, it was just about all that was reminiscent of "Creep Show", "Tales from the Dark Side", and the like.
The stories told in "Twisted Tales" were quite far from being interesting, much less actually being scary or twisted in any real sense. The stories were rather superficial and uninteresting. I managed to sit through about halfway through the movie before I fell asleep, were awakened by a sound from the movie, then got up and turns it off.
From what I managed to sit through, before passing out from sheer boredom, then I will say that "Bite" was the most fun and interesting of tales portrayed and told in "Twisted Tales".
The best part about "Twisted Tales" was that the casting people had managed to get some good enough talents to be part of this. Not award-winning performances, mind you, but there are people that you will recognize from other movies or TV shows.
I wouldn't really recommend "Twisted Tales" unless you have absolutely nothing else to watch or do, because there is really nothing overly appealing to this.
