After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, escapes from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.
Down a seedy city street in her neighborhood, young Enola Penny is obsessed with what appears to be a long abandoned theatre. One night, she sees that the front door is slightly ajar and impulsively decides to sneak inside. But there in the dark, decrepit auditorium, a show unlike any other unfolds before her eyes. Its host is an eerie human puppet named Peg Poett who will introduce Penny to six tales of the bizarre: A couple traveling in a remote part of the French Pyrenees cross paths with a lustful witch; A paranoid lover faces the wrath of a partner who has been pushed to her limit; The Freudian dreams of an unfaithful husband blur the lines between fantasy and reality; The horrors of the real world are interpreted through the mind of a child; A woman addicted to other people's memories gets her fix through the vitreous fluid of her victims' eyeballs; And a perverse obsession with sweets turns sour for a couple in too deep. But as the stories unfold, something much stranger is ... Written by
I will start off by saying that I am a huge horror anthology fan, so I went into this film very excited. There are all up 7 short films- (including the wrap-around story Theatre Guignol) and I will rate them one-by-one.
Mother Of Toads- Visually impressive, and moderately tense short, but lacks depth, and does drag on a bit towards the end-(any time you are watching a short film and get bored, you are doing something wrong). 3/10. Not a good start.
I Love You- COnsidering the fact the story is so derivative and played- out, the clever script and the solid acting saves this short from being a disaster. The ending is very predictable, and the short just did nothing for me. 4/10. At this point... I was sighing very heavily.
Bad Dreams- OK, when I saw this was directed by Tom Savini, I got very excited, and had high hopes it was all good from here. And after the opening dream sequence, I thought to my self "This is gonna be awesome". But I was wrong, what follows is a confusing and extremely dull short that goes absolutely nowhere. 2/10. By this stage, I was falling asleep.
The Accident- Yawning to myself, I saw the next short was directed by Douglas Buck. This also got me interested, as Buck was responsible for the excellent short film "Cutting Moments", but after the Savini disaster, I wasn't getting too excited. However, this was truly a beautiful short. It's not a horror, but just an absolutely wonderfully written and directed short that even your Grandma could truly appreciate. It is by for one of the best shorts I have ever seen, and it is worth getting the DVD purely for it. 10/10
Vision Stains- Brilliant idea that was not done as well as it should have been. Major let down. 3/10
Sweets- Much like I Love You, it's a played out idea, that has enough creepiness to keep you interested. It's all good until the unbelievably tacky final scene where they are sitting at the table. So cheesy. 6/10
Theatre Guignol-(Bizarre)- Udo Kier as a marionette. Nuff' said. That is creepy. 7/10
Was hoping for more, but it is worth getting, purely for "The Accident".
