Synopsis/Details: 

Dead Of Roses: A wife, murdered by her husband and buried within her bio-generic garden, resurrects through the plants in a campaign of revenge against her husband and his mistress, as a police detective doggedly investigates her disappearance.

A Thing And Things To Come: In the near-future, a small space alien crash-lands on Earth and is captured by two boys who mistake him for an action toy, subjecting him to an endless array of combat matches against the action toys of all the kids in the neighborhood. He becomes enamored with a fashion doll as he seeks a means of escape.

A Too Close Encounter: The commanding officer of a top secret military installation dares to challenge a UFO that hovers menacingly above his base, deploying all his forces against the alien craft; the effects of which result in dire consequences for the base and all of mankind.

Dewitched: An aspiring young actor makes a pact with an ugly old witch – if he will romance her for one evening, come morning she will reward him with his weight in gold. He takes her to a swank Hollywood party attended by those he knows; among whom is his estranged love Carla, and the loan shark whom he owes. After an evening of human angst and humiliation, the actor and his date end up at an x-rated hotel for “his final act.”
