Micro budget anthology film done well
6 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is an anthology film that ain't half bad. Not keen at all on the wrap around story as it does not really go anywhere.

However, there are four stories to get your teeth into.

Story one: Fade to black, about a young lad that is obsessed by horror films. He is hen pecked by his mother, who I thought was going to be similar to Mrs Bates from psycho !!!! Meets one of his horror idols and has the opportunity to audition, but it does not go well and he is ridiculed. He takes a bloody revenge.

Story 2: The sound of silence, this is about a mute girl who is raped by her neighbour. This all ends up in a bit of a supernatural nightmare.

Story 3: Full moon rising. A typical werewolf film.

Story 4: The taxi driver. The best of the bunch with the black rose serial killer prowling the streets in his taxi. He picks up one woman and finds a kindred spirit.

I would recommend this film to all those that love zero budget films. Kept me entertained throughout. Some decent scenarios with some gore, above average for this sort of thing
