The Theatre Bizarre 2011

Down a seedy city street in her neighborhood, young Enola Penny is obsessed with what appears to be a long abandoned theatre. One night, she sees that the front door is slightly ajar and impulsively decides to sneak inside. But there in the dark, decrepit auditorium, a show unlike any other unfolds before her eyes. Its host is an eerie human puppet named Peg Poett who will introduce Penny to six tales of the bizarre: A couple traveling in a remote part of the French Pyrenees cross paths with a lustful witch; A paranoid lover faces the wrath of a partner who has been pushed to her limit; The Freudian dreams of an unfaithful husband blur the lines between fantasy and reality; The horrors of the real world are interpreted through the mind of a child; A woman addicted to other people's memories gets her fix through the vitreous fluid of her victims' eyeballs; And a perverse obsession with sweets turns sour for a couple in too deep.

Final film of the evening for the 31 Days Of Horror, something off the To-Watch Pile. Have been meaning to check this one out FOREVER.

A messy anthology, overall a let down.

Ranking them:
1) The Accident: Did not fit in and wasn't even horror... sill the best segment of the bunch.
2) Vision Stains: The idea needed more runtime to be explored and probably less voiceovers.
3) Sweets: Was allright, the ending did deliver.
4) Mother of Toads: Probably the most standard story for an anthology, the location saved this one.
5) I Love You: Did not care for this at all.
6) Wet dreams: Way to campy and boring.. some effects were enjoyable but apparently they were not Savini's work.
