Another fun, campy horror comic in the style of those old EC comics, "Video Tape," Issue 5 of the current run of Grimm Tales of Terror, is neither the best nor the worst from the Terror series so far. "Video Tape" includes some excellent, creepy art, and a non-linear, neither-the-reader-nor-the-characters-really-know-what's-going-on kind of storyline. Of course, there's a typical, cheesy twist at the ending—you expect that from this style of comic. It's not a good ending, necessarily, but it's not good in a self-aware way, which makes it not bad, either.
Definitely worth reading if you like those campy, old horror comics, but if you're unsure whether you'll like the Tales of Terror series, this maybe isn't the best one to start with. There are stronger examples of what this series is really capable of (see my review of Issue 4, for example).
