    i've read a few reviews of this online. Some good, some not so good. soof course i have to check it out. i netflixed the movie and watched itlast night. i'm a big fan of creepshow and anthology films so that iswhat peaked my interest. there are 5 segments with a skit tying themtogether. all in all i was pretty entertained. it wasn't a bad littlefilm at all. the first segment was pretty good with a guy gettingtortured. technically the sound was off here and there. it was shotpretty good for a low end format. the acting was good on some and notso good on others. i am going to give this 10 stars to defend it frombad reviews but i would probably say 6 out of 10.

    I watched this movie based on the trailer I saw on youtube, you prettymuch get what you see. Anybody purchasing this movie knows whats instore for them.

    All the above comments bashing this movie are not real comments, justsome angry schmuck. This has flaw as does any low budget horror movie,anybody who watches these types of films already know what they are infor. The music is good from start to finish, the sound is so-so and thelighting could have been better is a couple of the segments.

    The acting was bad in a couple of the segments but overall was good.The zombies in the old west was pretty funny and had great costumes,the Vampire segment "Night Scream" had tight make-up effects and theintroduction to each segment was good and entertaining.

    I give it a 8 for trying something new.

    With a large helping of blood, guts, cute boys & sexy girls, "Slices"delivers everything a horror fan wants! I saw this movie the othernight in my dorm room, my roommate had just received it in the mail andit was Taco Tuesday so we put the DVD on and ate dinner. The openingcredits were so cool, like blood running across the screen! The TV hostguy was cute but not in the movie much. The first segment had a littletoo much gore for me, I liked the Night Scream segment. That hadvampires and cute boys, good mix 😉 The Dead Letters segment was sadbecause this writer had a dead wife who cheated on him. The lastsegment had a dirty mountain man kidnapping this adorable couple,luckily their sexy girl takes him down. The rest of the movie hadcowboys fighting zombies, that was silly but entertaining and hadreally good make-up effects and stuff! Kudos to the filmmakers :)

    If you're into anthology flix then you might like this. Low budget butit has some moments. Good music. Looks pretty good too.

    I just ordered this off of amazon. I'm a big fan of Troma and I wantedto see Trent Haaga. He was very funny in this and probably the movie'sbest spots. Or at least one of the best. There were a couple reallycool moments.

    The movie has five segments in all plus a wraparound which Trent Haagastars along with Matt Olivo. I did like a few of the segments a lotmore than I thought. There was one segment that I did not like however.

    All in all it was a pretty fun movie that you can tell they had apretty fun time making.

    For true horror fans………………JS

    I recently viewed this movie because I'm a fan of anthology movies likeTales of the Dark and Creepshow. I was surprised at how original allfive segments were set up, the picture was OK for HD. Most of theacting was fine, a couple of them not so fine. Dead Letters was one ofthe better segments I thought, the story was good and the acting wasreally well done. Night Screams was interesting I since I love vampirestories this one had me from the get go. One thing somebody should tellthe NS director that vampires can't be stopped by a bullet to the headlol! That was kind of stupid. As far as the rest of the movie I enjoyedmyself, the first segment was pretty cool with lots of blood- thumbs upon that! The western had cowboys fighting zombies which tries segmentwas the only comedy out of the five so I found it totally refreshingand hilarious. Another thumbs up to Emilee Wilson from the last segmentTurn Out, she very convincing in her role and was also very cute towatch when getting down and dirty in the fight scene! I give this moviea 10 for pushing the envelope in diversity for a five segment anthologyfilm and not being bound by the conventions of a run of the mill horrormovie! I'm interested to see what they follow this up with! Deacon…

    I watched this film at a sneak preview and it was scary as hell for alittle independent horror movie. The premise wasn't the most originalbut it was effective in the payoff. This movie had 5 segments by fivedifferent directors and each segment had such a different feel to it, Ireally enjoyed the wrap around with Trent Haaga, who I love from Troma!Slices had some really outrageous and scary moments with Chuck Williams(Bubba Ho-tep and Groom Lake) but also some damn funny moments too. Icouldn't stop laughing while watching David C. Hayes playing a zombiekilling cowboy, he steals a few great scenes with his comedic timing. Iwasn't at all bored with this movie and even know the movie had acouple of week spots, over all the movie was entertaining and had agreat climax, me and some friends were talking Slices the whole night.I recommend this film to any horror fans who like to kick back, watch aRock "N" Roll horror film and have a good time!

    This one is just bad, folks. Student film grade badness, not even theso bad its funny kind. None of the stories are original, or really eventhat spooky. The acting is wooden and amateur, but it's not like theyhad the greatest writing and character development to work with. Someof the segments are period pieces, complete with "costumes" and"accents" and if you've understood anything I've said you can justguess how "enjoyable" they are. If you once changed the diaper ofanyone involved in the movie, you'll probably think its the gosh darnedbest movie you've ever seen. If you don't happen to fit in that narrowtarget market … run! This really is a film only a mother could love.

    "Slices" is supposed to be some kind of homage to the "Tales Of TheCrypt" short stories. There have been a lot of horror movies whichfeatures several creepy tales like "Creepshow", "Body Bags", "House OnTerror Tract" and the recent "Trick 'r Treat". I liked them all, withthe exception of the godawfull "Creepshow III". "Slices" isunfortunately just as bad as "Creepshow III": all of the five storiesare different have a lot in common: bad acting, bad lightning, stupidstories. The budget must have been extremely low: there are no realactors and there was no money for special effects (well, it's meant tobe a horror movie after all).

    The first story is nothing more than a very uninspired and boringtorture scene where the "story" makes no sense at all. The second onehas a woman return from the grave thanks to an old type writer. Thethird one has vampires, the fourth one is set in the wild west. Thefinal tale actually has some potential at the beginning but again;stupid and disappointing with awful bad acting.

    Is there something remotely positive about this total failure ? Well,the artwork is good, unfortunately that's what tricks you into thismess (it worked on me..)

    Slices- The Movie is a series of five separate films that all cometogether in the end. A man with what seems like insomnia is plopped onthe couch watching late night TV titled Theatre of the Macabre with apeculiar horror host named Professor Luscious Phibes. He introduces usto the first film on the menu called The Exterminator. Here a nastyexecutive gets his just deserts when he is kidnapped and tortured inthe veins of films like Hostel or Saw.

    The next film on Professor Luscious' list is Dead Letters and in it avery popular author named Ash can't seem get over his ex wife who haspassed away. He is pining at her grave when his agent Tyler comes andtells him he needs to move on and get his ass back to writing bestselling novels. Tyler also thinks he can get him a pretty nice bookdeal. When he comes to Ash's house for dinner, really sees how hung upthe old man really is! My favorite one outta the bunch was the nextcalled Night Screams. Here two couples head out to what they think willbe a sex filled party type of situation until there is a knock on thedoor and Sandra shows up to sink her teeth into the situation. TheRange had the whole western 1880's theme with three Confederatesoldiers on the run from the law. After they meet up with skin rippingzombies they'll wish they just nested up behind those jail cell bars!The final show on Professor Phibes list is The Turn Out where a guy andhis girl are led out to this romantic spot by a friend so he can dropon one knee and ask the love of his life to marry him. So when they getthere the friend wanders off to give the two lovebirds some privacy.Well too bad they didn't notice the old dirty man lurking in the woods.Now he has the couple in his grips, will they manage to escape or willthat wedding never come to be?

    An insomniac who's tired of not sleeping decides to watch a horror TVanthology hosted by 'professor' Lucius Phibes (Trent Haaga). The goodprofessor introduces 5 separate horror tales

    The first, "The Exterminator" has a tyrannical boss being kidnapped andtortured. It's atrociously acted, thinly plotted and throughlyunentertaining. If I were the insomniac after watching this story, i'dbe asleep with a quickness.

    The second tale features a reclusive writer who doesn't want to bebothered with anyone after his wife drowns. He stumbles onto a way of'reanimating' his poor deceased wife. It's a tad better than the firststory, but it's also too lightly plotted, the 'twist' a bit too easy torealize & the characterization way too sparse.

    the third deals with a group of friends unknowingly inviting a vampireinto their house. The plot twists in this one don't really make allthat much sense if you hold them to the light. And since it's alsoshort, no ideas get a chance to be expounded on. This is a greatdetriment to the enjoyment of it in my eyes.

    Moving on to the forth story, A group of people are besieged by zombiesin the Old West. This segment is more 'comedic' then the first three,but sadly said 'comedy' falls decidedly flat. The zombie make-up is allright, i guess (if you squint) but the story is barren & motivationsunclear. Worst of all there's no ending, it just….ends.

    The last story does NOT go by that old adage 'saving the best for last'in the least. Quite the opposite in fact as it's as awful as thedreadful first story. It deals with a trio of friends hiking in thewoods and catching the eye of a maniac. It's excruciatingly boring andbadly acted. The less said about the soul-killing short the better.

    Lastly the wraparound segments are saved only by Trent Haaga, who's theonly entertaining thing about the train wreck of a film.

    Eye Candy: after the ending credits roll, we are 'treated' to an extrataking a lengthy shower scene. (treated is in quotations as she's notreally that good looking. she does show T&A and a hint of the other)

    My Grade: D-

    DVD Extras: 12 & a half minute Making-of featurette; music video by TheSea Monkees; photo reel; trailer for this movie; and trailers for"Blood Predator", "Grave Mistake" & "Rock'N'Roll Frankenstein"
