Decent concept. Poor execution.

| Original Score: 1/5

As uneven as anthology films often are, but occasionally good, goofy fun.

| Original Score: 3/5

E.C. Comics-style horror films are the LAST place one should attempt serious social commentary.

| Original Score: 1/5

The stories do get better as they go along, though all of them will seem overly familiar to fans of the genre.
