I mostly just logged on here to talk about the Halloween segment, which was directed by Kevin Smith (Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy). This was one of the weaker shorts and it ends with a guy apparently being electrocuted by a car battery attached to a dildo inserted into his anus.

Has anyone actually ever been electrocuted by a car battery? Nope. As is commonly known, the voltage is too low to get through the skin. Go outside, find a car, lick two fingers and put them on the terminals. At best you'll feel a mild tingling.

OK I know films aren't meant to be entirely real world accurate, but hey, I expected a bit more from Kevin Smith.

But wait you say - the wires were right inside his arse, so the current didn't have to go through the skin. And they attached another wire to his head so that the current would flow right through his body. The girls were actually trained electricians. They knew what they were doing. Maybe they cranked up the voltage using a mcGyver type device they put together in a real hurry.

Meh, come on Kevin Smith. This really felt like an abysmal student film.

The rest of the shorts are better, although there's a lot of unsatisfying endings. It's a decent horror anthology, inconsistent but better than the average single horror release in my opinion.
