This campy, amateurish horror anthology involves a quartet of spooky tales of the supernatural told around the dinner table by the cast and director of a horror film. The stories involve a mad bomber who gets his macabre comeuppance; a magical coin that transports its owner back in time; a ghost haunting a rich old man's vault; and a karate champion whose desire to achieve the "Tenth Level" reveals a secret for which he isn't prepared. Finally, the framing story ties everything up with a creepy climax. This crudely-shot, stagebound time-waster does very little with the collected tales, relying more on stilted dialogue and shoddy acting than scares or sense. Remarkably subdued work for notorious horror/exploitation filmmaker Joel M. Reed, who dumped Bloodsucking Freaks on an unsuspecting and disgusted public the following year.
