Young Matthew Wilson (Todd Fulton) receives a videotape he hasn't ordered, but he decides to put it into his VCR anyhow and finds out it's an anthology movie hosted by Vincent Price, who promises six horror stories:

1) A fisherman (Jerry Grisham) catches fish just for sport. One day, he finds an apple next to where he's usually fishing, picks it up and takes a bite ... and suddenly finds himself on a hook.

2) A delivery driver (Michael Patton Hall) in the middle of nowhere asks for directions, but all he's told is to stop and have a coffee. The driver tries to get back on the main road on his own, but no matter which route he takes, he returns to the same café - until he finally does stop to have a coffee ... and he'll never again leave the place.

3) A bunch of creatures have escaped from a biogenetics lab, and they soon start to mercilessly chase an overweight jogger (Ken Thorley) - but when they catch up with him, it turns out they only have picked him to play tag.

4) Mary Tucker (Shirley O'Key) has lived a lonely life for years, digging for gold on a hill her deceaased husband has once claimed. But the vein she is exploiting seems to dry up and she's just about to give up - when a UFO blows up her barn and reveals an incredibly rich vein beneath.

5) A bum has some sort of stone that fulfills all his (modest) wishes. When a mugger (Rocky Capella) finds out about this, he steals the stone, but is then run over by a car. The bum gets his stone back, uses it to bring the mugger back to life - but also sees to it that he's arrested for another crime.

Now these were five stories, but where's the sixth that Vincent Price has promised? Well, this one stars Matthew Wilson himself, and now he's threatened by all the characters from the other stories ...

 

Oh well! This film is best described as a poor man's Twilight Zone, with the individual stories ranging from boring to just about average, but all directed in such a boring way they simply can't deny their made-for-television origins. The best thing about this film next to Vincent Price - who turns in a competent job, much as expected - is actually the expressionist sets he appears in ... which are sadly enough no indication on any level to the stories that follow.
