Street Tales of Terrible Moviemaking...

"This movie definately ranks as one of the worst straight-to-video horror movies of all times. Shot entirely on video, the camera angles and lighting are amateurish (it actually looks like a film that a high school kid with his first video camera and a bunch of friends would make). The stories themselves are boring rehashes of urban legends that have been told a million times before and a million times better. The acting is equally bad and appears to have made full use of the local high school or junior college acting class (though the actor who plays the bum is actually kinda funny)Ignore the "awards" cited on the front of the DVD - I was sucked in by them, thinking that there must be SOMETHING good and/or scary in this movie. But, no. Save your money and your time. Do not rent, and certainly do not buy, this one..."

"Since this movie was done for about a third of the budget of the ultra low budget Blair Witch, one can't be too harsh. Street Tales has its moments. The 1st story with the three little girls is actually pretty good, the acting, camera shot selections as well as the story.But there are other parts of the movie where the shot selections were very amateurish. Waaaaaaay too many wide angle shots in the last story. And whats with the shot of the hand carrying a cup all away across the room. This lasts for 32 seconds and was the most boring shot I've seen in my life.I've seen other reviews that blamed the script for the problems of this film but anyone with any ounce of knowledge in the industry knows that shot selection can kill a movie/scene just like poor staging can kill a play.In fairness, there were points where the shot selection was good and others where you wonder what were the director and camera man thinking. Very uneven"

"This movie sucked. I could of did a better film. Tales from the hood was way better."
