The Writers View:
Sure, it is really not that easy and simple to create an Anthology and that is probably the positive things you can think of from viewing this. If you are mean you can even argue that the SyFy has done a lot of feature length films than most of those short films being shown here. One thing really is for sure: there is not that much found here to cherish about. It is only a shame, because it sounds really cool. Kevin Smith alone was doing the short sounds that seemed great. But again, even if he was really busy with some other stuffs or something else has occupied.
