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 here to open the

  • 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 here to open the

Always make sure of DVD-compatibility !!!

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 admirably.

Recommended!
