Mira (Kaylee Williams) wakes up in the middle of some field suffering
from amnesia - but she is quickly found by Irma (Helene Alter-Dyche) and
Tiny (Marv Blauvelt), who convince her she's actually working at their
motel, doing the nightshifts at the motel's desk. For Mira, it's as good a
point as any to start to try and find out what's going on, so she comes
with them. At the motel's desk, she finds weird-looking sketchbooks,
allegedly hers, who tell her three stories:
- W.O.R.M.: William (Jack Guasta) works at a dead-end job at an
IT company, and whatever he may try, nobody seems to take much note of
him. Then he gets his hands on a revolutionary piece of nanotechnology
that enables him to send emails right to other people's brains - and
he uses it to try and make the others like him ... or so he thinks, he
actually turns everybody into zombies ...
- Amber Alert: When you're nine months pregnant, it's only
natural that reports about missing neighbourhood children upset you.
For Vonda (Toya Turner), all this goes one step further though,
because she repeatedly sees one of the missing girls, Ally (Jamia
Vinci), but she seems to have turned into a zombie-like creature.
Problem is, not only does anybody believe her, people even deny
outrightly that Ally is one of the missing girls. Now this is freaky,
but it's even freakier when little Ally somehow leads Vonda to the
shed in her own backyard, where she finds an actual missing girl (Kate
Roberts), all tied up ...Click

- Pink Snapper: Orphans Susan (Deneen Melody) and Eric (Galen
Schloming) have been living with their alcoholic uncle Jack (Mike
Tracey) for years now, an uncle who has made it a habit to rape Susan
every now and again - until one day, Eric bursts in and beats Jack to
death in blind rage. Of course, this is totally understandable, but
Jack's a cop, and the police don't like copkillers - so Susan and Eric
make a hasty getaway, and drive, drive, drive, until their gas runs
out, and they're stranded without money or food. Nearby though they
find an injured and unconscious man, Edgar (Bruce Varner), his car,
and a mansion. Since the mansion's empty and the man's unconscious,
Susan and Eric decide to drive him to the next hospital, then steal
whatever they can carry from the mansion and take off in Eric's car.
After all, they have no choice, right? When the siblings later find
Edgar's own daughter Elizabeth (Judith Lesser) tied up in the
mansion's basement, they only see themselves justified, because which
righteous man would tie up his daughter in the basement. Elizabeth, it
should be added, totally condones what they are doing and becomes part
of their plan. On top of that, Elizabeth soon begins to show a sexual
interest in Eric - while Susan finds out that Elizabeth might be
somehow related to legendary vampire Elizabeth Bathory. In the
meantime, Edgar escapes from the hospital ...Click

Very effective, well-written horror anthology that succeeds in providing old horror
stories with new twists and that features a wraparound segment weird, even
surreal, and creepy enough to make the the rather heterogenous stories (a
workplace satire paired with cyberhorror, a serialkiller flick that turns
into a ghost story and a sci-fi-vampire tale with traces of Bonnie and
Clyde) work in the context of one and the same feature film. Of course, a
very talented ensemble cast and a director who knows hor to create
atmosphere and when (and when not) to open the gore floodgates are
instrumental in bringing a film like this to life - and they succeed
