‘Tom Hollands Twisted Tales’ Movie Review


I love horror anthologies. My cousin took me to see Creepshow when I was a kid and I spent the next two weeks drawing scenes from the movie. Tom Holland’s web series compilation isn’t exactly Creepshow, but it’s a worthy anthology for fans of the genre. FEARnet featured the web series as a whole, giving us the chance to binge watch Holland’s newest feature in contemporary style.

Running a solid two and a half hours, Twisted Tales offers the viewer several stories, each one directed by Holland. The tales vary in subject, length, and terror level, but Pizza Guy was my favorite. A cautionary tale about guilt, desire, and demon summoning. The visual centerpiece of the episode is a huge Satanic Baphomet painted on the living room floor. Not all the episodes are as intense and concise as Pizza Guy, but I appreciate horror sticking to its roots. Mr. Holland, a fantastic practical effects guy, chose to use digital effects for his web series, and that might be unforgivable to some, but they really do heighten that old school cheesy feel that makes anthologies fun.

It’s great to see Tom Holland still shocking fans in 2014. The director of 1985’s Fright Night, Psycho II, and The Initiation of Sarah appears before each episode, making for a cool Dr. Demento vibe. Well done.

Tom Holland’s Twisted Tales is available via Image Entertainment and available everywhere.

Horror legend Tom Holland (Child’s Play, Fright Night) dares you to join him for nine nerve-shredding, totally Twisted Tales. Serving up a mind-bending assortment of the macabre, it’s an anthology fine-tuned to keep you on the edge of your seat. A new drug offers users a glimpse of the future… with beastly consequences. A murderous husband is stalked by his own cell phone. A jilted lover wreaks satanic vengeance. The nightmarish action then leads to worlds haunted by dark magic, demonic possession, vampires, witches and more in this seriously freaky festival of fear. Features favorite genre stars including Danielle Harris (Rob Zombie’s Halloween), William Forsythe (The Devil’s Rejects, Boardwalk Empire), Ray Wise (X-Men: First Class), Sarah Butler (I Spit on Your Grave), A.J. Bowen (Hatchet 2)
