Stroll down the corridors of a mental asylum - if you dare - and share four terrorific tales.
This film is comprised of four darkly humorous tales, each of which revolves around a patient at a strange clinic. "Mr. Tiger" centers on a young boy's invisible pet tiger who is quite capable of murder, as the lad's wicked parents soon discover... In "Penny Farthing," a man is sent back in time, where an ominous portrait controls his unpleasant fate... A husband regrets bringing a mysterious tree named "Mel" home, as the plant destroys his marriage -- and a whole lot more. Lastly, a Polynesian "Luau" is where a literary agent's virgin daughter is to be sacrificed -- however, neither of them knows it yet...
