A stone’s throw from maybe being brilliant? I dunno. I can only judge what’s on the screen and what’s on the screen feels borne from some late night philosophical discussion amongst friends that I wasn’t party to. Beautifully shot, keeps the spirit of Amicus horror anthologies alive, but goes for Big Ideas in its finale that just don’t quite feel thematically of a piece with the rest of the film. THAT SAID...(ahem) it’s interesting & worthwhile.
