Tales From the Darkside: The Movie

Tales From the Darkside: The Movie was released into theaters on May 4th, 1990. Filming locations include Bronxville, NY. It was directed by John Harrison. Harrison was a Tales From the Darkside veteran, already directing eight episodes of the television series, prior to the film. He's also directed two episodes of the Tales From the Crypt television series as well as three episodes of the Creepshow television series. Julianne Moore played Susan in Lot 249, in what was her first role in a feature film. Debbie Harry of Blondie fame, played Betty, in The Wraparound Story. Seven years prior, she starred in David Cronenberg's Videodrome. She can also been seen in Monsters episode Desirable Alien and John Carpenter's Body Bags. Many fans consider this to be the third film of the Creepshow franchise. The second segment, Cat From Hell, was originally intended for Creepshow 2. However, it was dropped for budgetary reasons. The score for each segment, was composed by someone different. The Wraparound Story was done by Donald Rubinstein, Lot 249 by Jim Manzie and Pat Regan, Cat From Hell by Chaz Jankel and Lover's Vow by John Harrison. The films first DVD release was on September 25th, 2001.

In the first and second screenshots, she's turning from Pondfield Rd. onto Masterton Rd. and then continuing on. In the third screenshot, she's traveling west along Pondfield Rd. In reality, she would've just came from here, prior to the first two screenshots.
