The Writers View
The movie is not really that great, but at least it is entertaining temporarily while it shows and a lot much better than any film shown together with it. The movie is not the exception, although directors tried to maintain sufficient cohesion in the change from a segment to another, something that helps in the flow of the movie. Unfortunately, I am expecting for some good gore sceneries and some different monster that will provide a diverse perspective about a horror film.
