Body Bags (1993) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
What it lacks in quality stories, Body Bags certainly makes up for in charm and effort.  In fact at its worst Body Bags is a fun anthology film brought to you by two directors who know the genre better than most. Hell it even features Carpenter himself as the Crypt Keeper-esque mortician who link step three stories together and has a great stream of cameos from Wes Craven and Twiggy to Roger Corman, Sam Raimi  and even Tom Arnold (remember him?).  It’s still a mess and, for my money, I have yet to really love the anthology horror sub-genre BUT there are far worse takes on this format.  So essential? Nope but still worth watching if you want a cheesy slice of 90’s horror.

Best Bit: Carpenter is having ball

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Tales From The Hood, VHS, Creepshow (1982)

6 out of 10 stars
