review by
Mike Haberfelner

  • Ezili: On the run from her abusive husband (Jake Red), pregnant Jillian (Kara Schaaf) finds abode at her friends Nadia (Denise Milfort) and Richard (Bechir Sylvain) - not knowing of course that Nadia, who has only recently lost her unborn child, has plans for Jillian's offspring, plans Jillian is no part of, and she's got the means to achieve them ...

  • Bag of Tricks: When little Timmy (Calisto Thompson) comes trick-or-treating dressed up as a ghost to Tiffany (Jenna Nolan) and Ryan's (Frank Bernard Smith jr III), Ryan scares him away, just for a laugh. But little could he know that Timmy's a real ghost - one that's bound to come back with a vengeance ...
  • The Deal: Mr. Glades (John Kent) and Atlas (Kevin Caliber) are convinced that Sam (Dave Beaudrie), whom they have chained up in the basement and ready for torture, is actually hitman Shadow - and they want to get their hands on the money he has made over the years offing people. And to persuade him to cooperate, they have actually invited over his girlfriend (Gina Wong) to make their point. But alas, there are a few things they just don't know ...
  • The Wrong Profile: At first, it seems to be nothing but a routine, even boring stake-out, where old-school detective, Vincent (Paul Stroili) shows rookie John (Kyler Porche) the ropes, and in fact Vincent doesn't even believe the subject they're shadowing, Zachary (Todd James Jackson), is really guilty of serial homicide. And that's just the first mistake he has made ...
  • Silhouette: Amy (Jess Adams) would probably still be alive had only Sean (Jessie Daniel Hughes) held open the elevator door for a bit when he was going up for his room and let her slip in. Instead she got killed waiting for the lift to come back down - and now her ghost has returned to have her revenbe on Sean ...
  • Soundbite: Listeening to music on her earphones, our heroine (Taylor Murphy-Sinclair) turns on her laptop ... and the music changes to weird and mesmerizing. Soon our heroine feels like in a trance, and her nose and ears start bleeding. And then she hears voices ...
  • Stalk: Walking home alone one night, Vanessa (Kara Schaaf) is followed by a knife wielding masked killer (Tyler Gallant), who manages to sneak up on her and drag her into a dark corner. However, it's not quite clear who's the hunter and who's the prey ...
  • Love Me Not: Feeling under-appreciated by her current boyfriend Brad (David Blanco), Jenny (Vanessa Esperanza) has decided to invite him as well as all of their exes over to their Valentine dinner. Only her exes might not be all that alive anymore ...
  • Ax: Having just killed his girlfriend (Marita Gomsrud) using an ax, James (Todd James Jackson) asks himself "What drives a man to madness?" ...

An anthology that pretty much has something for every genre fan, as it ranges from reality-bound psycho-horror to ghosts and possession, varying in tone from the genuinely terrifying to the darkly humourous, and covering the field from psychological to visceral horror over the course of its run. But what all the segments have in common, they're well-crafted by a genre-savvy hand, the individual casts are all strong, and the stories told are engaging, making this into a pretty cool collection of horror entertainment.
