XX movie review (Spoilers)

Title: horizontal line


Hey, guys if you remember some time ago I told you guys about as an upcoming movie that was an anthology series where female directors directed all the stories. The trailer looked very promising. It came out in limited release but I was determined to check it out.  I don’t know how to put this but this was not a good start for the year.
I Honestly feel bad about doing this but they gave me no choice. Over the last few years we have been hit up by anthology horror movies and so far, it has not been bad VHS, Tales of Halloween, Christmas Horror Story, and things have been good. So I thought I would get more of the same or maybe a lil extra since one of the directors has some good movies under her belt.
Karyn Kasuma most known for directing Jennifer's Body did a good job with her contribution “Her only living son” which was about her troubled son who is fighting his inner demons while wondering about his biological father. When he turns 18 he realizes that his father is the Devil the actual Devil and he appears and the room gets darks it's the only good story in the film. One is a comedy about a wife hiding her dead husband. Who she didn’t even kill it was an accidental overdose. She spends the rest of the piece trying to hide the body and it's comical than suspenseful and she decides to pay off the entertainment guy to give her his panda suit so she can prop him up in a chair during the party. It’s not scary it’s not even funny.
Then there was a piece about a road trip that made a pit stop on Native American land that turned one of them into a bloodthirsty creature. I’ve seen more creativity In an episode of Goosebumps. The actors in each piece did a good job the effects work was solid nothing to call home about but the storytelling is what killed it for me. The only thing this movie is good for is killing time.
