The most cohesive and perhaps best put together of the recent spate of horror anthologies, this TIFF-premierer includes blood-soaked and scream-filled pieces directed by Roxanne Benjamin, David Bruckner, Patrick Horvath, and Radio Silence.

I'm a little torn about BASKIN. Don't get me wrong, gorehounds absolutely should not miss it, and the third act is so depraved it must be seen to be believed (especially for the performance by the very weird-looking actor who plays the evil priest, whom the director discovered working as a parking attendant). But while it held my attention, it was never, curiously, all that scary. Grim and nihilistic, to be sure. I wouldn't mind seeing it again.

That shot from THE LOBSTER... are you sure that it is not from SPECTRE?
I mean, I see Léa Seydoux holding a male chauvinist pig on a leash...

Our Little Sister, Baskin and The Lobster are on my must see list. Carol looks devastatingly good too.
