Terror from Beyond the Daves is pleased to welcome guest writer, Joe Vampire from HalloweenCostumes.com!
As a genre, horror films tend to do well when placed in an anthology setting. The short runtimes allow for maximum gore and tension with minimal downtime. Plus, they allow for ideas which might not work as full-length films to be given a chance to shine. Of course, sometimes those ideas probably shouldn’t have been filmed in the first place. This tends to make anthology films really hit or miss. As in: for every Creepshow, there’s a Creepshow 3 and for every “Amelia” from Trilogy of Terror there is one of the other vignettes from Trilogy of Terror that nobody remembers because there isn’t that creepy little doll.
