It seems as though horror anthologies are officially back in fashion, which can only be a good thing. Directors are experimenting with different techniques and story ideas without having to squeeze out feature length efforts. It avoids clichés and keeps the pace. Despite being released after the likes of The Abcs Of Death and V/H/S, Little Deaths actually precedes the former two films but is only just getting a release now, and thank God it has. Little Deaths takes three of Britain’s up and coming horror directors and gets them to each explore the idea of sex and death in a 30 minute segment.

Now sex and death are two things that many

Little Deaths (2011) review

by Jesse Miller, MoreHorror.com

Little Deaths is a nasty little British horror anthology composed of three disturbing tales intertwined around such themes of sex, death and relationships.

Make no mistake, this is definitely not for everyone – this gruesome and gory trilogy displays quite graphic and extreme sexual content that will probably test even the seasoned horror film buff.

That being said, let’s dive right in, shall we?

The first entry is writer/director Sean Hogan’s House & Home, which follows disturbed, rich and religious husband and wife, Richard (Luke De Lacy) & Victoria (Siubhan Harrison), as they prey on a homeless woman, aptly titled Sorrow (Holly Lucas), with the intent of capturing, using and abusing her for their own sexual satisfaction.

What follows is revolting and vile, as we are forced to bear witness to husband and wife gleefully tormenting their victim and enjoying themselves all too much.

While this sequence is quite harrowing,

Review: Leeds Film Festival's 11th Night of the Dead

Monster Brawl

Director/writer: Jesse T. Cook

Country: Canada

Running Time: 85 mins

Certificate: 18

Starring: Dave Foley, Art Hindle, Robert Maillet, Kevin Nash, Jimmy Hart, Herb Dean

The writer and director of 2008's horror flick Scarce, Jesse T. Cook, revisits the genre in his latest film Monster Brawl. “The time will come when monsters shape the futures of all” begins a suitably jocular voice-over that introduces us to the “most highly-anticipated extreme sport ever”. Making a horror enthusiast's hypothetical pub chat a reality, Cook pits some of the genre's most celebrated figures against each other in the wrestling ring.

Eight of the most powerful ghouls of all time from all four corners of the earth come together and are structured into “two conferences” with middle and heavy weight “monsters” and “creatures”, such as “Witch Bitch”. An American TV show set-up is quickly established with presenter, Buzz Chambers hosting from a secret cemetery location.

SXSW 2011: ‘Little Deaths’ – an anthology for open-minded individuals

Little Deaths

Directed by Sean Hogan, Andrew Parkinson, and Simon Rumley

UK – 2011

The Fantastic Fest Midnighters sidebar at SXSW is a wonderful idea. Austin’s annual Fantastic Festival is certainly one of the most esteemed and well curated genre festivals out there, but programming exclusively to a midnight crowd means occasionally succumbing to your baser instincts. Little Deaths, a horror anthology featuring three British directors shown as a part of this sidebar, seems designed to be assaultive and memorable, and is programmed to drive a midnight crowd wild. But beyond their immediate, and, sure, considerable, shock value, the three shorts here are overlong, underdeveloped, and cruel.

The first short, Sean Hogan’s House & Home, is easily the most frustrating of the three. It opens on a 30-something couple in bed as Victoria (Siubhan Harrison) frigidly dismisses her husband’s (Luke de Lacey) wandering hands. It becomes immediately clear that she
