3. Fear Itself (2008–2009)
TV-14 | 43 min | Horror
A television series broken down into thirteen separate sixty-minute films from premiere horror writers and directors.
Not much to hate, but not much to love either. Very meh. Nothing is memorable. Some episodes are kind of worth watching, as they are entertaining. In that case I recommend only seeing Eater, Community, Skin and Bones, Something With Bite. However, you can totally live without seeing any of them. Not really scary.
4. Masters of Horror (2005–2007)
TV-MA | 60 min | Horror
Anchor Bay has amassed some of the greatest horror film writers and directors to bring to you the anthology series, "Masters of Horror". For the first time, the foremost names in the horror... See full summary »
Kind of a mixed bag. Some of them are absolutely amazing! It's kind of obvious when watching which ones are forgettable or bad so you can just skip them. A must see! Pretty scary.

Votes: 1,693 | Gross: $1.36M

Votes: 30,467 | Gross: $29.50M
This is quite cheesy. I'm not against that sort of horror, I can enjoy it, but this one doesn't hit the mark at all. Only the final segment is worth watching. it is hilarious and quite well made. One segment is worth watching! Not scary at all.
7. Phobia 2 (2009)
125 min | Comedy, Fantasy, Horror
Phobia 2 is composed of five short movie segments directed by five of the best directors of Thai horror films. A teenager who committed a crime goes to a sacred place for meditation and ... See full summary »

Votes: 33,537 | Gross: $0.02M
I disliked it a lot. Maybe I was disappointed since I loved the first one. Not worth watching. A little scary.
9. Phobia (2008)
120 min | Drama, Horror, Mystery
4BIA is a Horror Anthology. The first segment, "Happiness" is about a lonely girl who corresponded with a stranger over hand phone text messaging and soon discovered something strange about... See full summary »
A mixed bag. First and final segments are worth watching. Especially the last one, since it was quite scary! Worth watching. Pretty scary.

Votes: 17,754 | Gross: $0.08M

PG-13 | 94 min | Comedy, Horror, Thriller
A stray cat is the linking element of three tales of suspense and horror.
Votes: 20,863 | Gross: $13.09M
Two of the segments are based on Stephen King short stories. You're way better off just reading them.. Not really worth watching. Not really scary.
12. Creepshow (1982)
R | 120 min | Comedy, Fantasy, Horror
An anthology which tells five terrifying tales based on the E.C. horror comic books of the 1950s.
Votes: 37,858 | Gross: $21.03M
Thinking of this makes me smile. Most of them are just funny and cheesy (but well made and some quite clever!), a few of them are a little scary also. There is one that is absolutely disgusting and terrifying (if you dislike creepy-crawlies). Very entertaining. Well worth watching. A little scary.
13. The Theatre Bizarre (2011)
Not Rated | 114 min | Horror

Tries hard to be edgy and interesting. But kind of falls flat and feels just pointless. Pretty at times, but pointless. Not really worth watching. A little scary.

Votes: 53,354 | Gross: $0.10M
Oh yes! I love this! I was terrified through most of it (although it in retrospect failed to deliver on some scares). Very interesting and new premises. High quality, only one segment disappointed. A must-see! Quite scary!

R | 93 min | Comedy, Fantasy, Horror

Votes: 13,531 | Gross: $16.32M
Eh. Meh. It has a certain charm, and is somewhat well-made for its' time, but that's all. Not really worth watching A little scary
16. Creepshow 2 (1987)
R | 92 min | Comedy, Fantasy, Horror
Three more bone-chilling tales that include a vengeful wooden Native American, a monstrous blob in a lake, and a hitchhiker who wants revenge and will not die.
Votes: 19,849 | Gross: $14.00M
Not at all as good as the first one. A lot less interesting, and doesn't really have any charm. Not worth watching. A little scary.

Very well-made and entertaining! Keeps you interested with a lot of variation. Well worth watching. A little scary.

107 min | Drama, Horror, Mystery
Unholy Women (Kowai onna), is a composite of three unrelated half-hour horror movies. The first segment, "Rattle Rattle", tells the story of a young woman who is pursued by an evil ... See full summary »
Hm. Interesting. Worth watching for the middle segment that is very strange and scary. Never seen anything like it, I wasn't quite sure what to feel when watching it (in a positive way). The first segment is ok, pretty entertaining and visually appealing. The last segment is boring and can be skipped. Well worth watching. A little scary.
19. Zoo (2005)
120 min | Horror
Hiroshi Ando aka "Zoo"
Synopsis.....This collection of shocking, unpredictable stories feature the first screen adaptation of the number one young author of his generation, Otsuichi. Working... See full synopsis »
Very strange, quite interesting. Some pretty gruesome imagery in the first segment. I don't really remember it much though. Have to rewatch it! Worth watching. Pretty scary.
20. Chilling Visions: 5 Senses of Fear (2013)
Not Rated | 88 min | Horror
From the people that brought you Steve Niles' Remains and Dead Souls comes a terrifying new anthology film based on the human senses...
Playful and fun. All of the segments are pretty solid and entertaining. Lacks in horror, unfortunately. Not that memorable, if feels a bit rushed. I wanted more substance. But on the other hand, if you just want some fun and kind of inventive segments then maybe this is for you. Worth watching. A little scary.
