      Audience Member A supernatural anthology trilogy. Do you remember Twilight Zone or Outer Limits ? Two of the story lines were original for their time. Kitchen Culture still is. Three half-hour stories were combined into a VHS trilogy. The common thread is the three protagonists share a bus ride "that can take you places you can't even imagine". The Classic The first story is about a classic MG that talks - but only its owner can hear HIM. A possessed car - John Carpenter's Christine, anyone ? The car's voice reminds me of the God voice over character in "A World without Men"... However this car is more of a Cyrano de Bergerac character - telling the guy what to tell his gal to win her back... Kitchen Culture The second story line is original - a guy's old tuna casserole turns into a creature growing inside his fridge and taking over his life. An original idea and a good script make this one well worth watching. The make-up special effects on the creature is a site to behold. Too Good To Be True The third story was also original for its time ( although the trilogy was released on video in 1991, this segment was shot in 1987 ), a gal is looking for Mr. Right by buying into the Perfect Match Computer Dating Service. Their computer holds a big database of potential dates. The interviewer explains how their service helped thousands of people so far. ( Computer dating started in the late 60s. They were using big IBM mainframes. See an article from The Harvard Crimson of November 3, 1965 written by T. JAY Mathews ) The dating service finds Mr. Right until she catches him making a phone call ... And his arm starts to twitch while bowling... and he turns out to be a know it all... but worst of all - she finds out how the Perfect Match Computer Dating Service find their perfect match! NB: For those who want to see it - ACP Promotions is the exclusive world wide distributor as of Oct 1st 2015.

Absolute bilge. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Goodness gracious this movie was lame. I think what the writers of this movie did was go through the trash of the writers from "Tales from the Crypt." There were three seperate 30 minute stories that made up this film, so I will break them down seperately. Story 1. A guy finds a car he falls in love with and buys it. Later he finds out that his car can talk and has a mind of it's own. The car gets jelous of the guys girlfriend and she.....she.........*snore.....snore* AAH, what happened? Man, that part sucked. Oh, he's driving away in the car, I guess he chose the car. Story 2. A girl just can't get a date no matter how hard she tried. She finds out about this dating service that guarantees a perfect match. She goes and applies and what not, and shortly after, is matched up with a man. They go on a few dates, and they are perfect together. When they go home they....th......*nods off* GAA, it happend again. Oh, no, he is smoking and sparking. Hey, turns out he was a robot. Story 3. This one takes the cake. This super slacker of a dude leaves a casserole in his fridge for way too long. Eventually, it evolves into a man. But, just his torso. From the waste up, it is a whole mane, except made of moldy casserole. But here is the clincher. He is super smart and super nice. They become best friends, but the slacker dude, starts to think about getting rid of him. The casserole man keeps talking about how slacker dude shouldn't get rid of him, but he never actually becomes violent or threatening. The fridge eventually gets unplugged, I don't remember if it was an accident or intentional. Memorable Moments • uuhhhh....there really aren't any. It was truly a bad movie Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Didn't watch it all, can't see why its an 18! bought it randomly thinking it would be scary. Looking at the review below maybe it gets better? Just bizaare! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member My finest ever pound shop purchase!!!! and it was on DVD Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member A very good anthology horror movie. The first segment was silly, I actually though this was a children's movie when I saw it first, the rest is great though. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
