Psychological horror that takes the drama side just a little too serious and doesn't fully deliver as a horror film. Performances are good and there are some memorable scenes, but overall the plot was a little too obvious and the styling a bit too derivative. It's not a bad film and perfect filler is you love a slow burner, but I expected more from these directors.

A fine anthology with a couple of pretty cool shorts. The biggest problem is that the best ones are all at the front, which makes the second half a bit disappointing. Even so, a pretty varied and fun take on popular folklore, the Turkish short is by far the best of the bunch, the American one is the weakest. Good fun though.
