Unbelievably lame and near worthless anthology
20 June 2013 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

An anthology series about the five senses all interlocked together.

The Good Story-Touch. Stranded in the forest after a car accident, a blind boy tries to find his way to help only to stumble across a serial killer's secret hideout. Unable to get away, he has to rely on his instincts to get away. While there wasn't a whole lot to really like here, as the ingenuity of the boy having to use his other senses to outwit the madman is negated by the twist ending of requiring him to survive anyway, it really saps the entry of it's potential as the forest setting works nicely and the scenes of him wandering around finding the area is pretty chilling. As well, it doesn't really use it's targeted sense all that well so it has some problems but remains the best of the episodes.

The Bad Stor(ies)-Smell. Unlucky in life, a man receives a mysterious bottle of perfume from a strange woman and soon begins a run of good fortune. However, he soon begins to realize there's dangerous side- effects to the strange accessory. While on the surface this had some potentially intriguing ideas about the destruction of the human body and how those around us will forgo physical attraction over material wealth, the fact that these are downplayed so significantly in favor of a tired rehashing a romance between separated lovers makes this one feel much longer than it really is. In addition, the fact that this one never really plays up the fact that the perfume makes all the difference and it never exploits how it smells to others is a real lost art, meaning this one is really only watchable for the make-up effects on the decomposing body.

Sight-Troubled by his loneliness, an optometrist uses his machines to extract his patient's memories and use them to experience their life. When he inadvertently triggers a homicidal man into a killing spree, he finds himself on the killer's list. Frankly, this could've been something as it really plays on a true fear for once, in that the strange machines at the doctor's office do more than help us, and the stalking in the abandoned office late at night really get quite chilling at times, but this one is just way too short to mean anything. It's got all the ingredients it needs to be creepy and chilling, except length for everything is over far too quickly and it never really uses the sight angle at all as the whole stolen-memories angle is used to experience their lives, not to fix his ailing sight and the process for stealing memories is happened-upon, which could've made this work more than it does. It's the closest to going up, but it stays down here.

Taste-Heading into an office for an interview, a man finds the agency who called him in to be quite unusual and strange. When he rejects their offer, he finds himself stalked through the hallways by the executive who has a strange habit of eating the ungrateful. Quite simply, this was the lamest entry in the series. The main point here is that it has no connection to it's chosen sense, and features a man running away from a woman with a strange contraption on her head that lets her devour human flesh. It doesn't have any time devoted to it and really seems to be there simply to interconnect all the different story lines together since that's how we know they belong together, but it doesn't do anything with them and feels so lame and unrealistic the image of the contraption is wasted by all the negative elements around it.

Hearing-Attempting to fix a documentary, a film crew finds their subject is an insane music composer who crafted a tune that made people commit suicide. Unaware of the dangers of their assignment, they soon realize the deadly powers of the song and try to stop it from spreading. Another one that had potential with a pretty creepy set-up and a rather innovative approach to a clichéd subject, but instead the insistence of this one to appear as a found-footage piece severely diminishes it's impact. The shaking footage and tons of obscure shots really do this one in, and when the horror finally hits home it's in the last few minutes since all they do is argue with each other over how to edit the piece together and then flashes of the song that they're working on. A great concept, horrible execution.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Brief Nudity and drug use.
