Tales from the Darkside: The Movie

New this month Plot hole: In the third story, "A Lover's Vow", Carola tells Preston that she was able to get his artwork exhibited at a very prestigious art gallery. At the end of the story, it's revealed that Carola is the very gargoyle that killed Preston's friend and swore him to silence. A very big mystery how a gargoyle, posing as a human, would have any connections to an art gallery at all.
