INTRODUCTION: This was one for 1st Kagemas, but I guess I couldn’t have been bothered to write a review for it. Why? Well, read on.
SYNOPSIS: Couple go to movies where the play resembles stories about to be told.
ACTING: It’s acting, which is something that it indeed is.
VISUALS: Not bad. Shit movies have better budgets now a days.
TENSION: Only in the struggle to watch it.
MUSIC: it’s there. So that has to account for something, right?
FX: Better than 80’s movies, not that I hate old school FX.
DIALOGUE: People speak, so.
CONCLUSION: The very first story is the best, reminiscent of the 60’s Batman style. One would think the Joker was behind everything. This should have been turned into its own independent flick. After that, much like A Christmas Horror Story, they didn’t even try to make the stories interesting. If you’re looking for a good movie, this isn’t it. To be fair, I hate Anthologies even more than I hate Found footage flicks. Anthologies are usually lower brow than episodic TV and only just above Youtube videos. Dramas are slightly better, because they’re closer to movies in length and build. Movies are the height form of visual medium. I don’t watch many anthologies, but this isn’t a good one. Don’t waste your time.
