John Carpenter plays an amusing, creepy-looking coroner in the wraparound story of this above average horror anthology film. He also shares the directing tasks with Tobe Hooper and Larry Sulkis. Many more horror icons and popular actors join us for three super atmospheric segments. These shorts have the production value of medium to high budget horror films.
Segment one is a compressed whodunit slasher taking place in and around a gas station at night. Segment two, more comedic, makes fun of magical solutions to hair loss. Segment three is about a man who receives an eye transplant after losing one in a violent car accident and who then gets vision from the dead. All three stories are equally well written and shot. All stories are memorable.
Directed with dynamism, ambiance, pacing, perfect cinematography and special effects ahead of their time, Body Bags has one realistic tale, a science-fiction one and one from the grave. They are so entertaining that you won’t be able to pick a favorite one. The planets sure aligned for what turns out to be one of the most interesting horror anthology films ever made.
