Worth a casual viewing, this is quite entertaining
17 June 2007 | by lagriff05See all my reviews

Ah, Terror Tract. I had seen this movie about a year ago and enjoyed it a lot. It's three horror stories, each about 35-40 minutes each, compiled into one movie. They tie it all together with a story about a real estate officer who desperately, DESPERATELY needs to sell homes to a newlywed couple, and ends up telling them the stories behind each house. The first story, "Nightmare", is a love triangle story that involves a murdered husband coming back from the dead to kill his wife. The second story, "Bobo", is about a pet monkey that has some sinister tricks up it's sleeve. The third story 'Come to Granny' is the real gold nugget in this piece, the shining work of the film. And the ending is a good exercise in chaotic insanity that will leave a bewildered smile on your face as the credits roll in.

"Nightmare" is a solid little story, but not overly memorable, and could've been omitted for a better one, or just to elongate the duration of "Come to Granny." This story felt way too long and was rather boring in some parts, although the ending was nice and the murder scene at the beginning was well executed (heh...pun...). Bad acting all around though. "Bobo" has good acting by Bryan Cranston as Ron, the father, and is rather humorous and ridiculous. It was a step up from the bland "Nightmare", but still not world class and could not stand on it's own as a real movie.

Then we reach the high point of our little anthology, "Come to Granny." It's the story of a troubled, dark young man who comes into the office of a psychiatrist late in the evening, and begins to tell the tale of how he sees the murders of 'The Granny Killer', a brutal psychopath who wears a mask resembling an old woman, and how his life was ruined because of it. This one packs very good hack-n-slash kills and an excellent and creepy ending. We have a good acting performance by Will Estes as Sean, and if I can say, Shonda Farr looks very nice as Jasmine, too. This one would be very good as a B slasher/horror flick, and I'd definitely pick it up on it's own. Worth the rental of the entire anthology by itself.

The ending of the film itself, like I stated above, is a good little burst of chaos and blood and gore, and pretty funny. John Ritter's performance was adequate and he did a great job. Overall, worth a rental for even casual horror fans, if you're looking for something interesting. This also comes with Cherry Falls in some sort of double feature type thing, and that movie is my personal favorite of the two.
