Canadian horror anthology movie that surpassed my expectations with its frightening holiday horror. It is a dark comedy that involves terrifying terror that will make you remember this movie around the holidays. I dislike that the movie went back and forth between the short tales. I would have appreciated the movie more if it was sorted into segments. This movie is one of two releasing in 2015 featuring the German Christmas demon Krampus.
3. Tales of Halloween (2015)
Consisting of ten segments, all set in a small American town that are being terrorized by ghouls, aliens, imps, killer kids, witches, a devil and ax killers on Halloween night. Tales from Halloween will be available on VOD and in theaters on October 16. I was greatly anticipating this movie upon viewing the trailer, and I was not disappointed upon seeing the movie. It is a movie that will be in my collection that I will view again. The movie was more than I expected, and it delivered in all areas. I applaud all of the writers and directors for putting together the best horror anthology I have ever seen. It is recommended to see the movie as many times as you can so you can see all of the cameos/faces that you might miss in the background the first or second time around. The ten segments in this anthology movie are done amazingly well, and there are no segments that I can find any faults with.
2. Trick ‘r Treat (2007)
This horror comedy anthology centers on four stories related to Halloween. Sam is a short trick-or-treater, and he is the one that ties all of the stories together. Sam is seen wearing an old orange pajama and a sack over his head with eyes, and he shows up every time someone breaks the Halloween traditions. This movie is an original piece of work that I watch every year, and it does not get boring. The cover photo for this movie explains a lot about the movie and makes you wonder and question the image itself before watching the movie. Overall – I recommend all horror fans to watch this movie. There are flaws and mishaps but watch it with an open mind and you will love it for what it is.
1. Creepshow (1982)
Combine George Romero‘s directing with Stephen King‘s screenplays based on 1950s horror anthology comic books and you’ve got horror anthology perfection. The movie was comprised of five short stories: Father’s Day, The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill, Something to Tide You Over, The Crate and They’re Creeping Up on You! Stephen King adapted two stories/segments from his short stories.
