Storyline

Mick Garris directs the linking sequences set in a cinema theatre where Mickey 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

Okay-ish Film. The Different Stories Make It Work!
23 June 2019 | by grahammwilesSee all my reviews

This film turned out okay mainly because of the different short films, which made all the difference. It wasn't fantastic but certainly not horrible either. Mickey Rourke looks blimming awful but at least the horror that he is adds to the films overall tone.

The film certainly could have been put together a bit better which scores it a straight 5 out of 10 stars.
