Movie Review – Terror Tract (2000)

Terror Tract (2000)A real estate agent terrifies a couple with the grim fates of the previous owners of a house they’re looking at.

Directors: Lance W. Dreesen, Clint Hutchison
Writer: Clint Hutchison
Stars: John Ritter, David DeLuise and Allison Smith

An anthology of tales narrated by John Ritter that will never make you forget Creepshow, but is easily worth 90 minutes of your time. One of the directors of Terror Tract was Lance W. Dreesen, who also directed a film that I really enjoyed, Big Bad Wolf.

Featuring 3 tales of horror “Make Me an Offer,” “Bobo” and “Come to Granny”, all of which are entertaining to say the least. The DVD art does not do this film justice. It features John Ritter’s name in large text and a cliche tagline of “Murder Has a New Home.” While the DVD art was poorly done, the film itself is a good times type of film that will have you enjoying all 3 stories of the anthology while wrapping up the nice little substory of John Ritter and his frantic phone calls at the end of the film.

As corny as it sounds, I enjoy watching John Ritter. He was a classic comedian and Three’s Company was one of my favorite sitcoms. To see Ritter getting roles long after the series’ run brings a smile to my face.

This first segment, “Make Me an Offer,” is the least of the three, but not entirely bad. It tells the story of a cheating wife and what happens to those who cheat. The second tale, “Bobo,” which I thoroughly enjoyed, tells the tale of a dressed-up monkey who is not as nice as he seems. The last story, “Come to Granny,” is an evil little tale of a teen who is psychically linked to the infamous “Granny Killer,” who gets his name by wearing a wrinkled grandmother mask while he kills.

Overall, I would say that if you are looking for a fun little time with a film light on the horror, but heavy on the fun, you should check out Terror Tract. Enjoy.
