Third Time's a Charm
Tales of the Third Dimension (1984)
Dir - Worth Keeter, Thom McIntyre, Earl Owensby
This is a mid-eighties horror anthology flick made in 3D. Of course the copy we watched was not in 3D. Aside from the cool wrap around which features a Rod Serling skeleton and a set of five vultures carrying the personalities of Laurel, Hardy and all three Stooges (inexplicable but amazing), the stories are pretty lame and boring.
Until you get to the third and final tale.
The last story finds a couple of kids dropped of at grandma's for Christmast while their parents go out of town for a few day. One problem - grandma's fucking crazy! She goes psycho and tries to kill everyone. I laughed so hard I was coughing and seeing cartoon stars. This segment will be watched by me during the holidays from here on out. I doth proclaim!
