Tales of Halloween
As stated below, ten short horror stories, not really connected except that they take place in a small town on Halloween night, emulate the format set out by Creepshow and yes, the superior Trick 'r Treat, to offer lots of fun horror with a Halloween emphasis.
As with any of these, the quality of each story varies, but overall, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality that this VOD pick had to offer. The first three stories were my favorite - each had a surprise ending, and an amusing amount of gore and scares. The picture above is of "Sweet Tooth", the Halloween monster with a penchant for candy. The middle got bogged down a little bit with some weird styles and a couple anti-climactic conclusions, but the quality picked up in the last few segments.
The quality of VOD rentals is usually pretty poor, but sometimes you find a good one. I definitely recommend this one. And, for our time-crunched 'thoners. Each story is only 8-10 minutes, so you can watch this one in small snippets and still get the whole experience. I recommend it.
