Many Kinds Of Sins
12 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

'The Sins Of The Fathers' - Richard Thomas and Geraldine page star as mother and son in Wales, who are forced by famine to resort using their father's technique of "sin eating" which involves consuming food surrounding a dead loved one in order to consume their earthly sins into himself. Thomas reluctantly performs this ritual for a rich family, but at a later high cost... Original tale is quite graphic and grim, but most atmospheric as well, with a fine cast, and strong ending.

'You Can't Get Help Like That Anymore' - A cruel married couple abuse android servant after android servant until an uprising turns the tables... Mediocre tale uses ideas from "Westworld" with mixed results.
