Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories: "Sauce Boy" Review - AVClub

AVClub: As tempting as it is to pigeonhole Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories as a skewering of anthology-horror series such as Tales From The Crypt, Tales From The Darkside, and even The Twilight Zone, it’s also incorrect. Where a true parody would poke fun at the genre’s conventions, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim actually embrace them to create a narrative that can be as funny and horrific as The Cryptkeeper himself, from the protagonist with a dark secret to the ending with an honest-to-God moral, however twisted it may be. Bedtime Stories isn’t their sendup of bite-sized terror—it’s merely their fractured-mirror image of it.

The story is too old to be commented.
