Jen has headaches and nightmares and she returns to Dr. Reese... Written by

Three stories that lack horror, contents and appeal...
When I sat down to watch "Little Deaths" it was because the movie was labeled as a horror movie. However, you have to look long and far to find anything that is even remotely in the shade of being horror. The movie is a collection of three tales, each more bizarre and boring than the other.
The first story, "House & Home" is about an outwardly Samaritan Christian couple who do small deeds to help those less fortunate. But their agenda is far from being pure, helpful and selfless. But their 'good' deeds don't go unpunished when they decide to 'help' the wrong person. This segment was initially interesting, but then turned out to be steadily on a downward hill when you find out the motive behind the couple's acts of charity. And it totally topple at the end where it just becomes ludicrous.
The second story, "Mutant Tool" is about an alternative way of creating recreational drugs. And this was actually the most interesting and captivating of the three stories. But still it wasn't overly impressive, but compared to the other two segments, it was outstanding.
The third and final story, "Bitch" is nothing short of softcore porn. It was unbearable to watch, and there was so much nudity and sexual deviation in it that was it was a pain to sit through. The story is about a couple that enjoy some bizarre, twisted and perverted sexual games.
For a horror movie, then "Little Deaths" was a disappointment unlike anything else. There wasn't a single scary moment in the entire movie. At best, the movie rates as bizarre and twisted, but surely not as a horror movie. Having suffered through all three stories in the movie, I can honestly say that this movie left no lasting impression on me at all, and it will be forgotten by tomorrow. This movie doesn't have any appeal or any valuable contents to support a second viewing at all. I am sure there is an audience out there for this particular type of movie (and stories), however, I was not in the target audience.
