Review: GFT Tales Of Terror V2 #5

terrorV25“You don’t want to do that son!” – Mr. Sparrow.

An ominous warning to a group of juvenile delinquents that don’t want to listen. Hooligans, punks, thugs, ruffians. No matter the term, they’re a group of kids who care only for themselves and will do anything they please no matter who it hurts.

The gang goes to a video store, run by the aforementioned Mr. Sparrow, they are waiting for their ride. One of the punks asks for porn and Mr. Sparrow politely informs him that they don’t carry anything like that. The boys continue looking around until they come across a VHS tape with no label. Mr. Sparrow warns them not to touch that particular tape.

This quirky little tale pays homage to films like The Ring, Creepshow 2 (‘Ol Woodenhead) and Untraceable but with a different spin. The authors Joe Brusha, Ralph Tedesca and Pat Shand give us unique characters within this gang. Some members seem to be redeemable while others have no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

The punks steel the tape with no label and take it home to watch, thinking it’s Mr. Sparrow’s private porn collection. Without giving away to much, the group finds that they are the stars of this tape. They go back to the video store and demand to know how they got on the tape and want to know what the visuals in this tape mean. They go way to far with their demands and get their comeuppance.

Great art and a satisfying little tale in the vein of Tales of the Crypt. ****
