Storyline

Mick Garris directs the linking sequences set in a cinema theatre where Mickey O'Rourke is the projectionist and the audience are lured in to view films which feature strangely familiar characters. The Thing in the Woods, directed by Alejandro Brugués is a pastiche which throws in every cliche from slashers to alien spiders. Mirare directed by Joe Dante deals with the weirder aspects of cosmetic surgery philia, taking it far beyond any logical conclusion. Mashit directed by Ryûhei Kitamura takes place in a Boarding School where staff and pupils are possessed by Demons. This Way to Egress directed by David Slade is filmed in dark monochrome, a woman loses touch with reality and seems to have crossed into a frightening parallel universe. Dead directed by Mick Garris is set in a hospital where a boy fights evil spirits and a real life murder. Written by Páiric

Scarifying Yet Funny Anthology Film
18 February 2019 | by PairicSee all my reviews

Mick Garris delivers his long anticipated Horror Anthology. Here he has assembled directors Alejandro Brugués, Joe Dante, Ryûhei Kitamura, and David Slade to join him at the helm of the segments. Garris also directs the linking sequences set in a cinema theatre where Mickey O'Rourke is the projectionist and the audience are lured in to view films which feature strangely familiar characters.

The Thing in the Woods, directed by Alejandro Brugués is a pastiche which throws in every cliche from slashers to alien spiders. It convinces though and has the potential to grow into a feature length Comedy-Horror feature.

Mirare directed by Joe Dante deals with the weirder aspects of cosmetic surgery philia, taking it far beyond any logical conclusion. Again this segment is suffused with humour and has an interesting plot twist but elements of it may be upsetting for the squeamish

Mashit directed by Ryûhei Kitamura takes place in a Catholic Boarding School where staff and pupils are possessed by Demons. Nasty Nuns and Putrid Priests have to battle with an army of possessed pupils.and took over teachers.

This Way to Egress directed by David Slade is filmed in dark monochrome and is the one film not enlivened by humour, a woman loses touch with reality and seems to have crossed into a frightening parallel universe. Dark and the one segment without humour delivers a jolt of existential terror.

Dead directed Mick Garris is set in a hospital where a boy fights evil spirits and a real life murder. Darkly comical but it would take few script changes to turn this tale into straight horror.

It was probably appropriate to have one totally bleak segment seeing as a dark vein of humour does run through the other four shorts (five counting the linking sequence). As many shocks as laughs though in this satisfying collection. It was even more enjoyable to watch it at the Dublin Halloween Horrorthon at the Irish Film Institute. 8/10.
