A pirate finds his very personal treasure chest: A collection of four horror VHS-tapes ...

  • Rotten Classmates: A nerdy student is constantly by a quartet of punks (Julia Byrne, Tuji Randriansolo, Martin Melcher, Doug Waugh) ... however, there's a kid sitting in the back of the library who just can't have such behavior - so he turns into Gas Mask Man, the avenger, a superhero who kills bullies with all sorts of school and household utensils, and brutally so ...
  • Vampire's Lust: One day when walking home, Tobias (M. Kelley) is bitten by a vampire bat, which - duh - turns him into a vampire. He soon wants to suck the blood of his best friend (Shawn C.Phillips), with whom he usually hangs out to make horror movies - but then they figure with him being a vampire, their horror movies might appear all the more real ...
  • Resident Emo: Ernie (Dan Pavlik) is your typical emo who seems to be living for nothing other than cutting himself. Then he cuts himself with a haunted blade and turns into a zombie, and soon he zombifies the entire emo-population in school. Lloyd Kaufman's in this one.
  • Mama it's a Mannequin: For her 18th birthday, mom (Melody Mathews) buys Patty (Saree Waugh) a mannequin - but the mannequin appears to be cursed, and starts killing people at Patty's birthday party ...

Always make sure of DVD-compatibility !!!

A collection of very low budget horror shorts that might not exactly reinvent the genre or even show its directors in full bloom yet - but it does show works of love from people who like to have fun with the genre and who dare to commit their crazy ideas to film. And somehow their enthusiasm is totally infectuous.

No masterpiece maybe, but more than enough fun to make a great party movie!
