Khalimbu: When jogging one day, Bianca (Caterina Cioli
Puviani) finds a mysterious book on the beach that a specialist on
ancient languages, professor Charles (David White), identifies
of Afghan origin from the 18th century, and it turns out to hold the
answer about life after death, as dictated by demon Khalimbu. But of
course, translating the book also sets the demon free ...
- Mandragoras: For a synopsis of this segment, click
- Soltanto Parole: They (Elisabetta Ventura, Rimi Beqiri,
Giulia Oranger, Luca Antinucci) seemed to be the most normal and
loving of families - until ...
- Ipocondria: Her (Alessandra Pellegatta) mistake was believing
the doctors one time too often ...
- Feralia: Sergio (Alessio Cherubini) and Lori (Serena
Binanceri) were the happiest of couples - until she suddenly
disappeared just like that while he was preparing dinner. And the more
Sergio goes looking for her, the more he's convinced she has actually
vanished through a gate to the realm of the dead ...
- Abyssus: After decades, Father Michele faces the victim of
his sexual abuse who demands penance - only what he demands is
certainly less than holy ...
- Che Gita di Merda: Ettore (Ivan Brusa) and his friend Achille
(Stefano Galli) take a walk through the woods, get into a fight, and
end up disturbing the Black Mass of a Satanic cult - and those are not
the kind of people you'd want to disturb ...
- Il Debito: After the death of their mother (Eliana Franco),
Margherita (Giorgia Fumagalli), Veronica (Claudia Blandino) and Diego
(Freancesco Colussi) are left with the task to sell off their
childhood home just to pay for her debts. This is especially hard on
Margherita, who starts to see ghosts of their mum and a mysterious
young boy (Nicolo Giacalone), and Veronica likewise later on - and by
the by they learn a terrible family secret ...
The Evil Building: After Midnight 2 is a bit of a horror
anthology that offers a little bit for everyone, with some segments being
bloodier, moodier, more cynical and indeed even funnier than others, but
they're very consistent in quality, all putting atmosphere over mere
spectacle, with great care put into their respective look and feel, and
showing a general respect and understanding for the horror genre - so
basically whichever style of horror might be your thing, you'll very
probably find one story or the other in this movie to love - but quite
probably the whole thing.
