Some pretty intense moments here. Looking forward to it.

Damn, it looks really good. Wonder when it will be released on DVD/Blu? I love anthology films.
I saw the trailer yesterday and also thought it looked very very good.
St. Vincent co-directing a horror film...
Looks really cool.
Watched this on Netflix. Two of the four stories I thought were very well done. One was ok and one was terrible. Only 80 minutes so it goes by rather quickly. Some interesting animation in between each segment. Worth viewing if you have Netflix.
Can't say I was much of a fan, most of the stories felt like none entities to me, a missed opportunity overall.
I was very disappointed in this one--I was hoping that the much-heralded female perspective would offer something fresh. I can't even recall any of the stories and I just watched it 2 weeks ago.
I just watched this today and thought it was one of the weakest anthology movies I've seen and I've watched dozens of them. None of the stories left much of an impression and most of them didn't even really have endings. I will say the dinners that kid wasn't eating looked delicious. There's actually someone credited as "Food Stylist", she did a great job, I had to stop halfway through and go make myself something to eat.
The last anthology I watched was The Tales That Witness Madness, and that was another really weak one (minus Donald Pleasence of course), I'm having bad luck with multi-story movies lately.
Caught this as part of my October viewing. Really enjoyed the first two stories, "The Box" and "The Birthday Party," or as the latter title's credits reveal
the full title to be "The Birthday Party, or, The Memory Lucy Suppressed From Her Seventh Birthday That Wasn't Really Her Mom's Fault (Even Though Her Therapist Says It's Probably Why She Fears Intimacy)."
These two played on common fears for women; in the former's case, the fear of feeding, and in the latter, the fear of the homemaker, or perhaps the lack of stimuli in being relegated to "just" a homemaker, as the mother struggles to even muster any emotions over her
. While the latter was darkly humorous, the first story was just creepy and thought-provoking.
Across all four stories, this anthology utilized sound and music to great effect, drawing fear and unease from sound effects and musical cues.
Unfortunately, the last two stories didn't work as well, with the third story, "Don't Fall," delivering fine enough scares but without much of a story or resolution. And the last story, "My Only Living Son," simply felt like a lightweight attempt at Rosemary's Baby.
Overall, a mediocre anthology that began brightly but finished without much substance.
