09.21.10Alamo Ritz This is one of my all time favorite horror anthologies. I remember watching it at a friend's house when I was young, either on VHS or cable.

Turns out, as per Zack Carlson's intro at Terror Tuesday it was originally set to be a "new" Twilight Zone TV series but was "too stupid, too gory and too scary" for TV so the producers made it more so and then said "hey, we made a movie!".

I always find that the first and last story are forgettable, though on this watch I did like the rat story quite a bit. However, I'm a hge fan of the Bishop of Battle bit with Emilio Estevez and the Lance Henrikson section where hes run down on the highway by a the devil who is driving a Chevy pickup.

It still holds up for me. There's some more obvious dumb things in it now that I'm older, but for all intents it's still a fun watch.
