Fast Fun
5 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

Having just sat down to watch 'Trick r' Treat' a few days ago I decided to watch 'Tales of Halloween' to try out a few other horror anthologies. I gave Trick r' Treat a 7, which is in high regard for its fun, but it's general lack of actual horror, so I was hopeful watching Tales of Halloween that I'd get an anthology with a bit more 'horror', I was indeed disappointed, 'Tales' was far from scary, it lacked horror A fair bit, much like its anthology counterpart Trick r' Treat, but also much like Trick r Treat it achieves massively on being fast paced and fun, the gore is good, realistic and on the borderline of being overused, but when it is used its often for comedy if anything. In conclusion it's not quite as good as Trick r' Treat, but it's not far off, so I'd recommend giving 'Tales' a try, it's not going to scare you, that's not what it set out to achieve, but you are going to have fun watching it.

Some segments are much better than others so I've rated them individually: 1-7/10 2-8/10 3-6/10 4-7/10 5-6/10 6-5/10 7-6/10 8-7/10 9-7/10 10-7/10 The average of all the segments is 6.6, which I'd say is an accurate reflection of the overall movie.
