Spooky special is overstuffed but fun; some violence.

There's a lot going on in this spooky special, so if you're not up on your Star Wars canon up until the last film, prepare for a little chaos. That said, it's a lot of fun for fans who enjoy seeing their favorite characters from all the Star Wars iterations get a little creepy. Hale successfully hams it up as Imperial underling and storyteller Vanee, and Grabella the Hutt as a Vegas-type real estate mogul is a weirdly hilarious turn.

Over-serious character Kylo Ren is made a bit of a caricature in his tale, complete with an '80s-style montage (including sax solo) where he turns evil and joins the Knights. It's generally enjoyable, but the frequent tone shifts are a lot to manage; they might have been better off telling one terrifying tale instead of three. While it's no holiday classic, Terrifying Tales beats the Star Wars Holiday Special any day.
