This film is actually two one hour stories, the first based on a Stephen King story called the "Chattering Teeth" about a man who picks up a hitchhiker and the second is based on a Clive Barker story called "The Body Politic" about hands that rebel against the body.

Christopher Lloyd plays a creepy guy who travels around America collecting creepy stories. Sounds good so far, right? A honeymooning couple is stranded on the road. The groom leaves his wife alone and Lloyd comes along and welcomes her into his motorhome to wait for him to return. He begins to tell her one of the stories he has collected. It's about a set of wind-up chattering teeth that seem to be posessed. He follows that story with one about a surgeon who's hands rebel on him, and start a revolution. This movie had a lot of potential. It's entertaining to a point, that is, if you've never seen it before. The wraparound story gets you in the mood, the chattering teeth story is pretty good too, though it leaves too much unanswered. The second story, though I hate to come down on it since it stars Matt Frewer and I do enjoy his work, starts out interesting but quickly becomes ridiculous and annoying. Giving the hands voices was going too far I'd say. This second story carries on for far too long, and it would have been better to make that one shorter and add a third story, because for a horror anthology you really should have at least 3 stories, not including the wraparound story. Overall it's like I said, a movie that entertains, until the story about the hands seems like it won't end. It's worth seeing once. It could have been so much better though.
