Not that bad but could've been better

Going out looking for house, a real-estate agent shows newlyweds three different properties and shares each of their gruesome histories with them. With each failed story, they realize there is a reason why he's intent to close a sale.

The Good Stor(ies): Nightmare-Returning home early, a husband finds his wife having an affair and confronts them about it, attempting to put an end to it by setting it up like they killed each other. When the plan goes awry and he becomes the victim, they conspire to get rid of him so they can live together. Thinking they have gotten away with it, they try to carry on, only to be confronted by something from the past that's not intent on letting their deeds go unpunished. This here is a fun entry that definitely opens the film the right way. It's incredibly predictable and the conclusion can be guessed less than a minute into it, but it's still really good. The nightmares provide some nice suspense, especially the soggy, plodding footsteps and the howling wind giving some old-school touches to the proceedings. The dive underwater is simply fantastic, offering up a couple great scare tactics and a great setting to go along. It's even got a great brawling scene that comes of rather well, and despite being a little overlong, it still leaves a good feeling afterward.

Come to Granny-Consumed with guilt, a young man offers to see a psychiatrist about a mysterious killer known as the Granny Killer, which has been plaguing the area. Convinced he might be the killer as he's been having flashes before each kill, and as he continues his story, she starts to suspect there's something to his story. This was a quite enjoyable entry, as it's a simple slasher story that really does its job well. The kills are great if a little too much off-screen, which is the main problem as they really shouldn't have been. With several violent hacked-up, a complete dismemberment and a vicious stabbing, none of it was shown but heavily implied, when it didn't need to be. The rest is good, with the stalking being rather fun with some great points in them that make for a lot of fun. It even has a really great mystery, being completely unsure if it's a recollection of his or just receiving psychic flashes, handling them well enough for its short running time and being rather nice about it. There's also a lot to like about the twist which plays well with the storyline as well, and the villain also sports a really wicked-looking granny mask that is quite terrifying, and the puns at the kills are clever and funny. This was just an all-around good segment.

The Bad Stor(ies): Bobo-Waking up one morning, a couple find their daughter concerned over a monkey she found in the backyard. As time goes on, she gets more and more attached to it which makes him all the more against keeping it, eventually getting to the point of outright hatred. Convinced its evil, he tries whatever he can to get rid of it, which it fights back with equal ferocity. There wasn't a whole lot of good stuff here. The only one is the one good kill, seeing a victim propped up against a wall with a dozen knives sticking out of their chest. It's a great visual and the only good thing here, as the rest of the segment consists of him running around trying to kill it for no reason. Later versions aren't bad, but an explanation for the initial rejection beyond just a parent's word would've been great to add a little more weight. It even skips over a built-in clause for this, in that it's a wild animal with potential deadly diseases and he needs to protect his family's safety, which is perfectly acceptable and made a ton of sense. That leaves the attacks to rely on their brutality, but are so lazily edited or so tame they lose a lot of their impact. Add into that a completely non-threatening monkey villain and this one just doesn't have much going on and as such drags the whole film down.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Language, Brief Nudity, minor animal violence and a mild sex scene.
