Release date: 1996
Macabre pair of shorts is a portmanteau film, indeed it is actually a portmanteau within a portmanteau. It is not two stories – as the title might lead you to believe, it does feature a pre-fame David Boreanaz – but don’t get too excited, and it is on the Troma label – and bizarrely I was quite taken by it.

This thing does stand up on its own – the wider wraparound gets a bit silly but, by then, you are invested and despite the vampire section being simple it is effective. There is a twist in the vampire wraparound that was nicely handled and understated and, all in all, I can’t help but like this. 5.5 out of 10 is for the vampire parts – The Eggs was even better.
