A BLACK CINEMA NIGHT DEBUT SPECIAL PRESENTED BY INTIMATE CONNECTIONS & HOSTED BY KAT !!

A creepy mortician, Mr. Simms (the late great Clarence Williams III !), attempts to scare teenage drug dealer Stack (Joe Torry) and his friends straight by telling them four horrifying stories. One is about a guilt-riddled cop (Anthony Griffith) who goes crazy after ignoring his corrupt partner (Michael Massee). He also tells of a meek schoolboy (Brandon Hammond) with terrifying supernatural powers. Although the young thugs want to take their drugs and escape Mr. Simms, he still has two more tales to tell.

"One of the smartest genre offerings of the era and, quite possibly, the best anthology of its decade." - Dustin Putman, TheFrightFile.com

"A smart and sassy horror anthology that mixes blunt shocks and sharp satire." - Joe Leydon, Variety

"It ingeniously employs the multi-saga format popularized by the likes of Dead of Night and Tales from the Crypt as a springboard for an examination of real problems facing African-American communities." - Matt Brunson, Film Frenzy

"A landmark genre picture." - Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
