A Few Duds, But Overall Enjoyable
25 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ten stories are woven together by their shared theme of Halloween night in an American suburb, where ghouls, imps, aliens and axe murderers appear for one night only to terrorize unsuspecting residents.

Any anthology will have its ups and downs. Even classics like "Creepshow" have a strongest and weakest segment. This film may suffer a bit more than average because of the large amount (ten) of segments and different folks involved. But, overall, still really fun and it may be fair to say it is the best anthology since "Trick 'r Treat". (Films like "VHS" had a couple strong segments but were overall blah.) Sadly, for me, the weakest segment here was "Ding Dong", which came from Lucky McKee. That was a real bummer, given that McKee is one of the bigger names attached and generally has done some very fine work. "May" is an indisputable masterpiece. But I just did not care for his story here or its execution...
