Liked it even better than the first one, which I also enjoyed
17 April 2018 | by WisdomsHammerSee all my reviews

Two of the three stories in Tales from the Dark Part 2 are my favorites out of the entire series: Hide and Seek, and Black Umbrella.

The first story is titled "Pillow." I found it a little confusing and drawn out. It seems like two stories awkwardly combined: one about a fighting couple and the other about a haunted or possessed pillow, I guess. It's difficult to talk about it without giving anything away. It's well acted and apparently a critic's favorite, but definitely not mine.

The second story, "Hide and Seek", is my favorite story of the whole series. A group of kids go play hide and seek in recently abandoned school and are joined by unexpected players. It was creepy, fun, and surprisingly short for a story that seemed so rich.

The last story, "Black Umbrella," follows an old man with a black umbrella around the city as tries to help a bunch of ungrateful people. He makes a mark on the handle of his umbrella for each good deed (I think). I found the ending to be a delightful surprise. As the old man says, "It's hard to be kind."

I love anthology horror movies. This is among my favorites.
