Tales of the Unexplained
Story/The Film Itself: The DVD collects four episodes of a television show that was produced by Universal Entertainment. Three episodes are hosted by Patrick MacNee while the fourth is hosted by James Romanovich. The episodes deal with UFOs and other things that come under the heading of ‘paranormal’ werewolves, haunted Hollywood places, reincarnation and Dracula are the third installment, while the final episode covers cults and other weird group-think. This is a rental type of thing. The production values seem good enough, but the material is all sort of glazed over and doesn’t really stick because they are trying to get multiple subjects into a one hour episode as opposed to covering the area correctly – like having a full hour devoted to Vlad the Impaler. There’s no denying that if you’re into these subjects there are many in a short time span, but the segments only whet the appetite for a deeper look. Because of that you probably won’t watch this many times over. (Westlake Entertainment, 8025 Deering Ave., Canoga Park, CA 91304) – Myk.
