From the evil mind of GEORGE A. ROMERO, who unleashed "Day of The Dead," "Diary of the Dead," and, the horror classic, "Night of the Living Dead," comes three bedtime tales that will dare you to fall asleep!


  • THE GORGE:  When Donna accompanies her fiance, Gary, and his best friend, Craig, on a morning caving expedition; she expects a fun hike, a few laughs, and maybe some kisses in the dark. But a sudden cave-in leaves them trapped with no way out. Gary's leg has been crushed, and as the days go by, gangrene sets in. With everyone starving, Craig suggests that when they cut off the leg, maybe they should take just an extra few inches. Will it be enough to feed all of them? And how far will three people go to survive?

  •  ON SABBATH HILL: Richard has it made:  a lovely wife, two beautiful daughters, and a good career as a history professor at a local university. A real stickler for attendance, he has no problem expelling students for missing even a single class. One student who never misses a class is Allison, a beautiful co-ed, ready and available for sex anytime Richard wants. But when the relationship gets too deep, Richard breaks it off . . . with deadly results. However, even in death Allison doesn't want to miss class.  How else could she haunt him to the brink of insanity?

  • DUST: George loves his wife, Audrey. So watching her die a slow and painful death from cancer is intolerable. A nighttime security guard at a high-tech lab for over 30 years, George learns that a doctor in the lab has been experimenting with dust from Mars that may cure cancer. When the doctor refuses to give George the dust, George kills him, takes the dust and gives it to Audrey. It not only cures her disease, it makes her younger, more vibrant and full of lust. With her insatiable appetite, Audrey wants more of everything. As her need for more dust grows, George realizes he has created a monster. He knows he has to get rid of the dust and, in a fit of rage, throws it into the wind. But no good deed goes unpunished. The dust settles in a nearby graveyard, causing the dead to rise and George to pay the ultimate price!
