Summary: Enjoyable and wacky horror comedy

This is one kooky movie. Three DJs host "The One O'Clock Terror", a radio show where listeners call in to tell ghost stories. The movie is made up of three such stories, each centering on one of the DJ's. They are linked with a vague continuity that completely falls apart when you think about it later. Elements are introduced and never followed up, and the whole thing has an arbitrary "And then they die" plotline. But what the hell; while it's running it's an enjoyable and wacky little horror comedy. The gore is played for laughs, although the floating dead pig is definitely a real dead pig, and the ox eyes that Long Hair holds against his eyeballs at midnight to see the ghost of the radio caller he advised to commit suicide are definitely real ox eyes. Ew, gross. And no, you don't need to see Troublesome Night 1, because this offbeat little film still won't make any sense.
