Tales for the Midnight Hour

review by
Mike Haberfelner

"The Reaper" (Joel D. Wynkoop), who thinks he's much scarier than he is (and hilariously so), takes us through a quintet of horror stories:

  • Trick or Treaters: A girl (Emily Christina) who's really not into Halloween sends away a trio of trick-or-treaters (Seth Zelch, Noah Zelch, Ella Grace Baker) - but they're not shaken off quite that easily ...
  • Elimination: A woman (Donna Hamblin) persuades her boyfriend (Mark Gordon Buckley) to kill her husband - and all ends well, that is, until things start to backfire ...
  • The Experiment: Phil (Jack Thurber) agrees to do a social experiment, which seemingly just involves to have sex with the person in charge - until ...
  • Strangled Friends: Two women (Tina Krause, Debbie D) are fighting over a man - until one of them is killed. But supernatural forces insist on even the score ...
  • Tangled Web: Benny  (Joel D. Wynkoop) finds out his wife Judy (M. Catherine Wynkoop) has been cheating on him with his brother - and strangles her in a fit of rage. Then he hides the body in the woods ... but leaves the cellphone with her and now he calls Jimmy (Phil Herman) to find the body and get rid of the phone - his brother Jimmy who Judy had an affair with ...

A fun little piece of anthology horror that has a little bit for everybody, from the macabre to the erotic, the suspenseful to the comedic, and everything in between, with the film's varying wildly in style and production value, but all held together by a rather hilarious wraparound segment. And despite some unevenness between the segments, none is an actual let-down and each manages to entertain on a different level. And while some might dislike the film for being a bit on the hodgepodge side, others will probably embrace it for just that, giving us a wide variety of scary stories for the price of one.
