his one has three stories - first is about a mummy brought to life that is mostly humorous, second one is about a "Cat from Hell" based upon a Stephen King short story that has a pretty disturbing grotesque and memorable ending with a William Hickey in top form and the last one is a pretty good Asian-style atmosphere piece. A hit-and-miss movie that should be intriguing for fans of short stories fiction.
I could happily watch David Johansen daily if he were in more films but not even having a satanic black cat crawl out of his mouth could save this early MTV foray into horror. Tales From The Darkside casts Debbie Harry, Christian Slater, Julianne Moore & Steve Buscemi in the hammiest roles since Scream & Scream again. Incredibly dated (but full of nostalgia if like me you grew up in the 90s), with awful stories. D.
