We had never heard of this film before, but gave it a go because Bill Paxton was listed as featuring in one of the stories, and to be honest, it's not amongst his better performances, but that's probably due to the material he had to work with. The film looks like a compilation of episodes from a TV series such as The Twilight Zone (but nowhere near as good), with a few wraparound segments tacked on just to create a "Horror Anthology", although comedy horror might be a better description, but with not much comedy or horror included.

The film doesn't really have a lot to keep you interested in watching all the way through, however, it was good to see Bill Paxton as Vince (a room-mate from Hell), which reminded me of his character Severen from the 1987 movie Near Dark.
