I agree with what empire said, but the reason why i gave the film one star is because it has so many opportunities to make something great, but failed on nearly every short film possible

This is an ambitious and slightly sprawling piece of film making which reminded me of those weird experimental films that Richard Kern used to make back in the 70’s and 80’s. In truth, there’s some pretty good stuff here that’s off set by an awful lot of “artistic” cinematic clag after which I was left wondering why some of the film makers actually bothered. A, C, D, K, N, T, V were the stand out sections for me – all the rest was slightly mad or just plain forgettable bunk. THREE STARS

I rarely post on this forum but this film made me want to.
This is my take on each section:-

A - 6/10 - Good effects but doesn't explain Apocalypse properly
B - 5/10 - Not bad but feels like a DVD only slasher film
C - 7/10 - Nice idea but lacking tension
D - 8/10 - Very stylish. Definitely one of the better sections
E - 4/10 - Nothing new here
F - 1/10 - Utter rubbish
G - 7/10 - Too short to be properly involving. Good camerawork.
H - 6/10 - What the hell did I just watch?
I - 8/10 - Wow. Intense would have been a better word for this instead of Ingrown.
J - 7/10 - Take away the comedy and this would have been the best section.
K - 4/10 - The animation was good but nothing else was.
L - 8/10 - Very cool. I could see someone doing a feature length version of this
M - 1/10 - Just terrible
N - 8/10 - Loved it. Humour and horror. Good combination.
O - 3/10 - Stylish but completely empty
P - 8/10 - Not an easy watch. More socially relevant than any other section
Q - 6/10 - Not as clever or subversive as it thinks it is.
R - 8/10 - This needs to be turned into a full length film
S - 6/10 - Robert Rodriguez on a bad day
T - 7/10 - Childhood nightmares played out in plasticine
U - 9/10 - Best thing Ben Wheatley's ever done. By far the best section.
V - 9/10 - Plays like a video-game cutscene. But it's a game I'd definitely play
W - 3/10 - W for waste of money. Seen better things on Youtube
X - 8/10 - Harrowing and very poignant
Y - 5/10 - I really didn't get this one at all
Z - 0/10 - One of the stupidest things I've ever seen

There's just too much shit diluting the small handful of ok episodes here - if this had been done as a series of films perhaps, with each episode given a bit more time to develop (26 in one sitting was just too ambitious) it may have improved the quality, but I actually just got bored halfway through this and struggled to finish watching it.

Overall it was pretty poor and almost entirely forgettable, especially the stories that just seemed to scream "Look at me! Shock for the sake of shocking!"
