Here's a hint: try writing some stories before filming.
4 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This one isn't too bad per se, it's an anthology film with five stories, most of which zip by fairly quickly. The real problem is that the stories are barely there at all! A guy's been knocking boots with another man's woman and heads off to find his hotel, only to find himself at a morgue run by a bad actor. Within, he finds the coroner telling stories relating to the corpse he holds there. Sounds like a good set-up, but...well, most of the stories aren't any good at all.

The first is concerned with a woman who hates kids, who then finds her home attacked with deformed kid monsters. Good for atmosphere, but I've just described the story fully with one sentence.

The next describes a guy who kills women on camera and gets caught. That's the plot. Don't get confused.

The third is actually not too bad. Two criminologists try and outwit each other. I'll leave it at that, as this one actually has a plot, of sorts.

Number four makes even less sense. A chug nut gets trapped in a room and hooked on booze. That's...uh...the plot...

Story five is what happens to the cuckolder. I'll leave it up to you to imagine what happens to him...

The things is, the movie ain't terrible. It kept me going, and it did have atmosphere at several points. It's watchable enough, but your not going to be declaring this to be any more than the fluff it is. Watch it if you get desperate one night. It won't offend you.
