Our host Scarlet Fry (Walter Ruether), a character sprung from a comic magazine that makes people kill one another, treats us to seven tales of terror:

  • The Old West: Three outlaws (Keith Jackson, Geno Dellamorte, Walter Ruether) find a meteor o0ut in the desert and decide to make it into money. But one of them figures killing his friends would be a good way to maximize his profits. Unfortunately though, the meteor has the power to raise the dead, so the two dead outlaws come back to life to kill their killer. Then hit the next town to do a bit more killing ...
  • A man (Sean Magee) kills hitchhikers because he believes he's possessed by a stuffed rat. Then though a hitchhiker (Daniella Saada) puts up a fight and kills the killer. Only now his stuffed animal wants to possess her ...
  • A guy (Brian Carr) can't stop cheating on his wife (Christina Chavez) with girls primarily picked up from the internet. Then though he hooks up with a homicidal monster ...
  • Misty (Tara Carlton) picks up Luigi (Scott Boyd) and takes him back home - where her husband (Danny Marianino) catches them. And while Luigi makes a hasty escape, Misty goes ahead and kills her husband. Then she invites Luigi back, drugs him and feeds him hubby to get rid of the evidence and teach him a lesson for his cowardly behaviour ...
  • An openly gay guy (Jared Leve Squee) tries to pick up a dangerous-looking young man with homophobic tendencies (Dez K.Devar) in a rather agressive manner - until that man kills him, but not because he was gay but because of the gay porn mag he was carrying ...
  • Damone (Vincent Bocchini) thinks he's the greatest artist alive. Unfortunately, nobody else thinks that, least of all his wife (Tana Satana), whom he ultimately kills in a row. Surprisingly though, as a ghost, Damone's wife becomes his muse, and a picture painted in her blood makes Damone a small fortune. Then though the ghost wife makes him make a sculpture out of her skull, which only terrifies the art world, and ultimately she makes him commit suicide ...

  • A Jack the Ripper exhibition is in town, and somehow it has brought the ghost of the Ripper (Mykel Sane) with it, who soon goes on a killing spree. Three girls (Anika Erickson, Liz Marcoline, Danielle Schultz) are next on his list. They try to report everything to the police, but the police only thinks it's some kind of students' joke or a publicity stunt, and thus the three girls become the Ripper's next victims ...

A fun little anthology movie that finds just the right balance between horror and humour to keep its audience entertained throughout. And while the stories pretty much lack a common theme, they are fast-paced and well-told enough to make up for very entertaining 75 minutes.
