Movie Summary

Director:
John Harrison
Released:
1990
Rating:
R
From Stephen King (Pet Sematary), Michael McDowell (Beetlejuice), George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead) and Arthur Conan Doyle (creator of Sherlock Holmes), comes Tales From The Darkside: The Movie, an all-star horror anthology packed with fun and fright. "The Wraparound Story" concerns a little boy who spins all the tales...to distract a modern-day witch who wants to pop him in the oven! In "Lot 249," a malevolent mummy gives new meaning to "final exams" when he awakens to wreak revenge on unsuspecting student bodies. A furry black kitty is really the "Cat From Hell," and a "Lover's Vow" brings a stone gargoyle to murderous life.
