Stacy Ann Strang,
"Little Deaths" is composed by three segments with short stories of sex, violence, death and revenge in England. 1st segment: "House & Home" Richard Gull and his wife Victoria Gull claim that are good Samaritans and invite the starving homeless Sorrow to have a bath and dinner with them at home. However they spike the wine and when Sorrow wakes up, she is tied naked on a bed in the basement. Richard abuses of her and Victoria stays with Sorrow humiliating her while he has a shower. He hears a scream and when he arrives in the basement, he has a gruesome surprise. 2nd segment: "Mutant Tool" The former addicted prostitute Jen lives with her former pimp and drug dealer Frank, who also abducts persons to steal their kidneys to deliver to Dr. Reese. Jen gives her best efforts to stay clean and refuses to meet clients from the former "agency" where she worked. When Frank asks her to go to Dr. Reese, he gives some tablets for her. Jen has headaches and nightmares and she returns to Dr. Reese... Written by

The cinematography is good. The mood it is setting, I also liked that. The stories weren't that bad either. Though they had some downfalls (the second one trying to hard with the twist, I guess). I don't feel good about blaming the actors either. Maybe the stories only sound good on paper, but the direction wasn't that good. I can't say for sure what element didn't seem to fit.
I can only say, that the sum of it's (3) parts, wasn't as satisfying as I hoped it would be. You have to have a heart for anthologies in the first place of course. Not to mention the fact that this isn't for the squeamish either. But I reckon you have read this before somewhere about this movie. Do not rent it, if you can't handle the gore and nudity!
