Decent concept. Poor execution.

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.

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