Urban Evil: A Trilogy of Fear (2005)

Urban Evil is a sneaky re-packaging of three Full Moon titles — The Horrible Dr. Bones, Ragdoll and The Vault — presented as a Tales From the Crypt-like anthology, without so much as a character to introduce and tie them together. It’s a testament to how thin these movies are that they can be chopped down so easily into 30-minute segments and actually work better in this shortened form — especially the first two, whose full-length versions are padded with mercilessly whack rap performances. This is low-budget but fairly ambitious stuff with some decent acting, and in light of the Z-grade stuff out there, this X-grade fare could be worse.
