England, 1795: the young Catherine has just married Charles Fengriffen and moves into his castle. She becomes the victim of an old curse that lays on the family. On her wedding night she is raped by a ghost and gets pregnant.
Three tales of terror: in "The Graveyard Rats" lovers murder the woman's older husband and encounter horror when they attempt to rob his grave; "Bobby" is the story of a woman who summons her son back from the dead; and in "He Who Kills" an African doll goes on a murderous rampage. Written by

In the episode "He Who Kills", one of the museum security guards is reading a "Dark Shadows" comic book, and enthuses about how he used to rush home from school to watch it. Dan Curtis directed the TV show "Dark Shadows" (1966). See more »
The apartment at the beginning of the third story is obviously not the same one from the first film. It is much larger and more modern with a second floor. See more »
Lysette Anthony takes over for Karen Black in this trilogy of scary stories in which she is the star in each tale. The first one is about adultery, murder, and grave robbers. The second tale is about a mother who uses black magic to bring her dead son back to life. The final and best tale is about the demonic African doll from the first film stalking Anthony. While the effects may be a bit on the cheap side, this is a fun and scary outing. Lysette Anthony is a good choice for taking over the Karen Black.
Rated R; Violence and Profanity.
