A thousand years in the past an old bearded giant white eyebrows guy is doing battle with a witch with a V on her forehead. He is aided by two "fairies" who capture a "bead" or glowing fx ball. We are suddenly in 1990 and join the side splitting Captain Mambo HK police something or other and his crew of mugging goofballs. While they are supposed to be investigating headless corpses, Mambo meets one of the "fairies" who is being chased by the witch/demoness for the "bead".
Gothamites Sam and Molly see their romance shattered when a street thug kills Sam during a mugging. But love endures beyond the grave when a spectral Sam learns that Molly is in danger and he must find a way to warn her before she suffers his fate.
The first segment features an animated mummy stalking selected student victims; the second tale tells the story of a "cat from hell" who cannot be killed and leaves a trail of victims behind it; the third story is about a man who witnesses a bizarre killing and promises never to tell what he saw and the "in-between" bit is the story of a woman preparing to cook her newspaper boy for supper.
