The long wait is finally over! This is probably the best horror anthology ever and one of the perfect movies to get you into the halloween spirit. I can't remember a anthology movie that blends its stories so perfectly and brilliantly together and on top of that it looks like a million bucks, gorgeous filmmaking! It cleverly blends humor with terror and suspense, enchanting as well as twisted, it's sweet and sour and makes a perfect halloween treat! I thought all of the stories and characters were memorable and inspired and has a couple of great twists but I do think it's a tad overrated because it's certainly not the best of the best but it's close to it. What I don't get is why they didn't release this one to theaters, sure a couple of kids die but most were off screen I mean come on there is worse out there than this and it's a shame because it might of had a chance to be a box office hit, missed opportunity. Overall I was expecting a little more out of this than what I've got based on it's praise but it's a very solid halloween gem in the likes of movies like Creepshow crossed with Satan's Little Helper ect. It was just a very fun, entertaining, glorious and thrilling funhouse flick just in time for halloween. Very clever, recommended! More of a 3.5 out of 5 stars.
