A low budget anthology film that generally succeeds in telling six pretty dark, twisted stories. Most of the stories are actually pretty good and the framing story is actually mildly interesting, unlike a lot of anthology films. There is one story, though, that feels very out of place.
The short is called 'The Accident' and is a philosophical take on death, unlike the more twisted, gory tales that are shown. The film also suffers from the occasional bad acting. As far as anthologies films go, this was a pretty good one that featured more hits than misses and had a very dark tone to it. Definitely something horror fans should check it.
