bunch of kids return home in their car
after a rock concert driving recklessly
and then they crash their car on a
They then build a fire to wait for help
and decide to tell campfire stories to
scare one another convincing each other
that all of this really happened but each
tale is more terrifying each time.
first story is called The
Honeymoon about two
newlyweds named Rick (Ron Livingston) and
Valerie (Jennifer MacDonald) go out on
their RV and a local native indian named
Cole (Hawthorne Jones) warns them about
the dangers where they're at but they
ignore his warning and continue to camp
out but suddenly Rick goes out to get
some stuff and is attacking by a hairy
second story People Can
Lick Too is about a
little girl named Amanda (Alex McKenna)
is celebrating her birthday and has
interacted with a psychopath on the
internet and stalks her at her house at
night who calls himself Jessica (Jonathan
Fuller) watching everything she does
without her knowing about it.
final chapter named The
Locket a travelling
biker named Scott Anderson (Glenn Quinn)
stops by at what looks like an abandoned
farmhouse as a storm is about to occur
but meets a mute beautiful woman named
Heather Wallace (Jacinda Barrett) whom he
grew attached to but however he realises
that the farmhouse is haunted and he
tries to get her out of there as the
house is starting to get dangerous with
these kids tell their stories help is on
the way but they realise that something
terrible has happened to them which was
left behind before the accident.
A typical horror anthology
but done in a good way as we have an
impressive wraparound segment with kids
being kids telling scary tales but it is
sad at the very end. An impressive wraparound story and
shows good shots on the car driving on
the road as well as it swerving into a
Good shots on the characters around a bonfire
waiting for help and the main character Cliff acting like a dork trying to scare them
by being loud.
Towards the end there's a great lighting
background on the cast looking sad of
what happened to them which was touching.
The Honeymoon was fun to watch although not enough
werewolf type showings as that was what
it was meant to be as hthere's a good moment with a native indian holding
a shotgun with silent talking about
warning the couple about what is going to
There is a good shot onthe character Eric being dragged underneath a vehicle.
There's a scene with Rick being attacked by a werewolf but it looks
too dark alot of the times but it almost
looked suspenseful from what we saw.
Nice shots on Valerie while being grabbed as well as her trying
to fight off what is attacking her from
outside while she is in her trailer.
People Can Lick Too is probably the best chapter of a child's
fears of the dark and what madness can be
out there at night too as well as a
nightmare of meeting the psycho she
associates on the internet. It is full of
suspense without a doubt as there's a good
opening with a child named Amanda running down the street
excited for her Birthday and going to her
A good shot on the Internet Man showing his full body but not his face
watching a home video in his chair in a
bare room as the setting is totally
A nice scene with Amanda playing soccer at night in her back yard
with her dog and a good shot on her
looking for the soccer ball in some
bushes with a nice shot onthe Internet Man's hand about to grab her head when she is
looking as you wonder if she will notice
A good shot on Amanda holding
There are nice dark shots on the Internet Man in the bushes looking creepy too.
There's a perfect setting on Amanda going in the garage to look for her dog
and sees something covered up with a
great close up shot on her lifting the
A nice shot on a mirror reflection with
lipstick writing and a shot on Amanda on her bed with her hand below the ground
and the Internet Man underneath the bed
licking her hand.
The Locket was a perfect haunted house tale and lots
of fun touches throughout the story with
lots of ghostly action surrounding it.
There's a good shot
on Scott Anderson riding his
motorbike up to a house and reacts well
when a storm is about to begin.
Nice intereactions between Scott and a mute girl named Heather Wallace when she is
trying to do charades with him to explain
stuff during the thunderstorm inside the
There's a nice shot with Scott and Heather on a bed making out
as well as good shots of the clock
striking ten o clock many times and a
fire lighting up with insane moments
We also have some interesting
hallucination shots Heather's father going to a well in a storm.
There's a good moment with him holding
an axe about to attack Scott as
he does well trying to defend himself.
The acting is
above average. In The Campfire, Jay R. Ferguson (Cliff) is impressive as
a goofball in the wraparound segment and was a believeable troublemakin teen.
Christine Taylor (Lauren) knew her stuff as
usual and does her part nicely as an
outgoing but yet an emotional one of the
pack. Does well by
laughing after the first chapter is told
and then starts to sob.
Masterson (Eric) does well and has a bubbly
type personality as the newlywed husband
Jennifer MacDonald (Valerie) has the great
looks as the wife and seems to pull of
her part fairly well too.
But the most effective performer for this
chapter was supporting actor Hawthorne James with his eccentric
behavior as a native indian.
Can Lick Too young actress Alex
McKenna (Amanda) has a nice charm to her part
as a happy girl on her Birthday night and
really shows great character. Does well screaming and running away after encountering something in her garage.
Devon Odessa (Katherine) tries to pull it off as
a bitchy rebellious older sister but yet
she tends to overdo it especially when she gives idle threats to her onscreen sister.
Although Jonathan Fuller (The Internet Man) never
had any lines as a maniac he still looked
creepy which was convincing enough.
Locket Glenn Quinn (Scott Anderson) pulls off a good performance as a
lonesome traveller packing some energy to
Jacinda Barrett (Heather Wallace) pulls her part
well as an innocent mute strange woman at
the haunted house.
Supporting actor Denny Arnold (Heather's Father) was
convincing as a menacing ghost especially when he attacks.
In The Honeymoon there is a brief breast shot by Jennifer
MacDonald in a trailer during a sex
scene doggy style.
We also have a butt shot by Ron
Livingston outside but it is dark.
There's a hung body clawed
up on a tree.
A head bloodily pops off
The music had
great adventurous tones and some chiming
too on a synthesizer all composed by Andrew
