Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Such noted genre directors as Kevin Smith (Tusk), Scott Stewart (Dark Skies) and Nicholas McCarthy (The Pact) contribute to this mixed bag of a horror anthology linked to the celebration of special days of the year. Halloween, Christmas and Valentine's Day have featured in many a fright film, so it makes a change to see Father's Day, Easter and New Year's Eve deliver terror instead of all-star romantic comedy. Gary Shore (Dracula Untold) conjures up the oddest story for St Patrick's Day (a pagan riff on Rosemary's Baby with a herpetological twist) while Smith's Halloween yarn about a coven of webcam girls taking vicious revenge on their scumbag boss is pure torture scorn. As so often with portmanteau fare, some stories are flimsier than others, though McCarthy's eerie fusion of the Resurrection with the antics of the Easter Bunny is easily the cream of the crop.
