That Old Guy from TexasReviewed in the United States on March 31, 2021

Excellent Blue Ray quality and great documentary
Verified purchase
The unit contains nothing more than the disk. (Considering the process, not surprising) But the documentary is really well done. Anyone familiar with or a fan of the omnibus or anthology movie with find much to love here. And what a wealth of information! Considered myself fairly knowledgeable about the genre..till this doc showed me how much I didn't know! Great directors and really, an excellent mix of the greats and the should-have-been greats through history. Can't say enough good about this documentary.

fun and excellent value
Verified purchase
This is a fun look into the anthology style horror films. Also a great value; it includes two full length anthology horror films. I particularly enjoyed the original silent Eerie Tales with Conrad Veidt.

the old is better than the new

I got this disk for "Eerie Tales" only. Everything else is filler.

A great start for newcomers to anthology horror
Originally intended as an extra on The Theater Bizarre release, Tales of the Uncanny grew in scope over the lockdown that COVID-19 caused. Starting with Severin Films chief David Gregory and House Of Psychotic Women author Kier-La Janisse, there’s a huge cast of people ready to share their thoughts on the history of anthology horror, like Eli Roth, Joe Dante, Mark Hartley, Mick Garris, Ernest Dickerson, Joko Anwar, Brian Yuzna, Gary Sherman, Rebekah McKendry, Peter Strickland, Kim Newman, Jovanka Vuckovic, Luigi Cozzi, Tom Savini, Jenn Wexler, Larry Fessenden, Richard Stanley, Brian Trenchard-Smith, Ramsey Campbell and David DeCoteau.

The films covered are Eerie Tales, Waxworks, The Living Dead, Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors, Flesh and Fantasy, Dead of Night, Three Cases of Murder, Tales of Terror, Black Sabbath, Twice-Told Tales, Kwaidan, Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors, Torture Garden, Spirits of the Dead, The House That Dripped Blood, Tales from the Crypt, Asylum, The Vault of Horror, From Beyond the Grave, Trilogy of Terror, Dead of Night, The Uncanny, The Monster Club, Creepshow, Screamtime, Twilight Zone: The Movie, Nightmares, Tales from the Third Dimension, Cat’s Eye, Night Train to Terror, Escapes,Deadtime Stories, Creepshow 2, From a Whisper to a Scream, After Midnight, Two Evil Eyes, Tales from the Dark Side: The Movie, Grim Prarie Tales, Necronomicon, Tales from the Hood, Family Portraits: A Trilogy of America, Three…Extreme, Trick ‘r Treat, Fear (s) of the Dark, Little Deaths, The Theater Bizarre, Chillerama, V/H/S, The ABCs of Death, V/H/S/2, ABCs of Death 2, Barbarous Mexico, German Angst, Betamax, Southbound, Tales of Halloween, Holidays, Worst Fears, XX, The Field Guide to Evil and Nightmare Cinema.

Fans of anthology horror may not learn many new things, but it’s a great introduction to newcomers, particularly the Amicus section of the film. I’d advise watching this with subtitles, as some of the Skype interviews are a bit difficult to make out. Otherwise, a great package that comes complete with Eerie Tales and Unusual Tales.
