Potential masterpiece damn near ruined by the humorous story of the two golfers. I hated that segment, because it disrupts the building sense of dread. I wish it wasn't in the movie. The ventriloquist dummy story everybody talks about was somewhat of a letdown. I actually thought the mirror story was the best of the lot and quite eerie.
"I wish it were as easy as that. But trying to remember a dream is like, how shall I put it, being out at night in a thunder-storm. There's a flash of lightning and, for one brief moment, everything stands out: vivid and startling."
Una antología de historias fantásticas y sobrenaturales. Como suele suceder en en estos casos, unas se destacan sobre otras. Mis favoritas: la historia del ventrílocuo (verdaderamente perturbadora) y el espejo encantado. Igualmente la secuencia final, donde vemos a Walter Craig sumergido en una pesadilla que se pasea por casi todas las historias es potente, así como su final cíclico.
To be honest, I was expecting a bigger payoff at the end, but I guess for the time, it was pretty revolutionary. The Dummy segment is the real standout here, and I agree with others when I say that the Gofling section could have been left out. Overall, it's definitely an overlooked horror classic.
