6 overall but a 10 for the first story
17 July 2018 | by BlackClassClownSee all my reviews

A pretty fun anthology with some star directors of genre, including Joe Dante and Mick Garris. I had one clear favorite here, and that was directed by Alejandro Brugues (Juan of the Dead) who pulled out all the stops and had some pretty wild twists in what begins looking like a standard issue "girl chased by blade wielding psychopath in remote woods" story to something really funny and unexpected. The other tales are all okay and shot well. Plenty of blood and guts and VFX. What you don't get is great writing. An exorcism story never explains itself. It looks very cinematic, but I didn't understand what was going on or why really. The last story about a kid whose family is murdered is a cool ghost tale, but never explains why the killer is so intent on this kid and this family so it was hard to connect to. But the flick is fun overall if you watch for the first story and then enjoy some gore, some scares, a creepy Mickey Rourke, hot nuns getting boned, and cinematic eye candy.
