Tales From the Darkside

This one falls under both my October horror movie marathon and my 1990 movie marathon — and in fact, I’ve been saving up the horror movies from 1990 to watch during October (although I did jump the gun with Nightbreed). This was pretty fun, an anthology of horror stories that definitely feels like something out of Tales of the Crypt, with a silly but fun connecting story featuring Debby Harry as a cannibal. I didn’t remember much before starting to watch it, but I did eventually start recognizing some sequences. It was especially fun seeing Steve Buscemi here (in the first tale), and overall I liked this, even though I think the cat story (in the middle) is less interesting than the rest.
