Storyline

While waiting for their bus, five passengers have just had horrible nightmares and decide to tell them to each other to help killing time. A swimmer, who has lessons in a swimming pool with a dead swimmer, tells the first one. A young boy, who goes camping with two friends and a crazy man as a leader, is the next. Then, a lonely woman, who has an infatuation with the anchor of a late night show, and finds that he is indeed a vampire. A young man, who finds he has the gift of bringing dead people back to life, brings a cold blood criminal back to life. Last, a skeptic professor of anthropology tells to his students about an evil Spanish creature from the Middle Ages called "Ixpe", and a young woman embodies it. When the bus arrives, they have a huge surprise. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Cutesy Horror
8 April 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

An entertainer, with most of the actors seemingly determined to act campy. Cheesy special effects and poor cinematography. But an entertainer, nonetheless.

Amongst the several sub-plots, the one with the kids is really cutesy and the story of the girl student possessed with an Aztec evil spirit is scary enough. The vampire-in-the-bedroom story is a bit confusing, though. The end is predictable enough, but still brings a smile on one's face.

Its surprising how such low-budget horror anthology flicks can deliver the goods, but many high-brow, high-tech and high-budget horror flicks fail miserably.
