| A long haul movie, falling short on a few vital ingredients
In this review I'm including part 2 as well. As a gore hound to this so called Asian horror fest, I was let down for quite a while as there's much more humor, instead of slashings, decapitations, what have you, to these six small tales of the bizarre, that constitute a movie of over three hours running time. I didn't find it that much scary as I thought. As with Evil Dead, to a smaller extent, again my expectations were held too high as I thought it would be full bore. There are a couple of moments where you'll jump thanks to the dark and deafening nasty music score, that preludes that moment of surprise or shock. The nasty score at the start gave the impression this was to be a really scary sick flick, but it really disappointed me on that number as did the gore. The most sickening gore scene is the one in the last shorter tale involving a prostitute who gets her just desserts. Although Tales in The Dark is very smart and invented story wise, no denying that, what we've got in between is a lot of drone time, flatness, the story telling cuts too deep, weighing the film down, until the next shock, although the humor, compensates for quite a bit of it. But for the reasons stated earlier, I was just expecting a more scary vehicle. One asset was story 2, which starred Tony Leung, one of the best Asian actors of this generation, if not the best. And what would a multiple horror tale film be, without one including revenge. Not without interest, just some of you, you expectations will fall short.
