Doug Ullrich, USA, 1993, AGFA + Bleeding Skull, Horror

“A gloriously cheap SOV triptych, all wood-paneled basements and fluctuating room insanely dorky, ambitious bit of stupidity.” -- Matt Lynch, Letterboxd

A hooded figure with glowing eyes appears in a dense plume of mist. He’s encircled by silhouetted children who wait for him to read from an ancient tome. So begins a three-part, shot-on-video horror anthology from 1993, which by all appearances is a period piece that takes place in 1985. Drunk dads play darts, blaring ponytail rock drowns out middle-aged profanities. This is followed by demonic possession, bathtub nudity, wide-scale slaughter and a man fighting medieval dwarves in a field outside of Baltimore.

Bleeding Skull's release has been meticulously pieced together from the original S-VHS master tapes, making it the best looking-and-sounding version of SCARY TALES that has ever been available.
