Synopsis by Cavett Binion
This interesting low-budget horror omnibus from West Virginia works like a cut-price variation on Amicus Productions' horror anthologies of the '60s and '70s (particularly Dr. Terror's House of Horrors). The framing story consists of a group of travelers killing time at a lonely bus station by discussing their nightmares. The vignettes based upon these dreams involve a young woman's infatuation with a handsome swimming star whose fate is somehow tied to the pool itself; a TV anchor with disturbing nocturnal feeding habits; a Monkey's Paw variation about a man who can wish people back to life; a scout-troop leader with a beastly secret; and a college student who comes under the spell of an Aztec demon. The stories vary in quality, but there are some genuinely creepy moments, and the performances (all local actors) are of uniquely high quality for a regional production.
