FILM 1494: BODY BAGS

TRIVIA: In "The Gas Station", as Bill is watching TV, the anchorman mentions a body was found in Haddonfield, a reference to John Carpenter's earlier film, Halloween (1978).

Was made as the pilot episode for a proposed anthology series to air on Showtime, but Showtime pulled the plug.

This film features many great horror directors that act and/or direct. John Carpenter director of Halloween (1978) plays "The Coroner" and introduces each segment as well as directs two of the stories, "The Gas Station" and "Hair", Tobe Hooper director of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) plays "Morgue Worker # 2" and directs the last segment, "The Eye", Wes Craven director of A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) plays "Pasty-Faced Man" at the gas station, Sam Raimi director of The Evil Dead (1981) plays "Dead Bill", and Roger Corman plays Dr. Bregman in the segment "Eye".
