Brandon prepares to give his last stand-up comedy show. As his stories and jokes pass, the public begins to cheer up. But at that precise moment Brandon will realize that these stories have a strong relationship with his past. More than he imagines.

  • One of the best anthology feature films I ever saw! by 10

    Every single story was really well done and the wrap around story combined them greatly. My favorite was the one with the excorcism right in the beginning with a very surprising twist.

  • What a mess by 4

    One of your typical anthology movies that tries to tie stories together and be clever, but instead turning out a confusing mess of garbage. Even if it replaced the boring host in between segments with The Crypt Keeper himself, it couldn't save this sinking ship.

    It started off ok, but just nose dives before it's halfway through. A couple of the stories are ok, some have some decent visual FX and gore moments, but overall it falls flat on being anything memorable other than it tried to hard to have hidden messeges that try to be clever, but are just eye rolling bad.

    Had it been edited better, and had 45 mins cut out of it, it would've made a decent Tales from the Crypt episode. Unfortunately what this actually is, is a decent 20 minute idea stetched out painfully with an extra hour of filler to get it to be released as a full length feature rather than the short TV episode it should've been.

  • How many times are we going to watch The Cleansing Hour? by 1

    So this anthology starts off with the 3rd making of The Cleansing Hour. It was a short movie in 2016, a full movie in 2020 & now another short in this "new" horror anthology. It's tired, put it to bed.

  • Please don't make any more like this by 1

    Without a doubt, the worst film I've seen for a long while. Boring, disconnected, pretentious.

  • this is like loosing virginity x 12 for a horrorfanatic... by 10

    That loves gore and blood, that loves bestialic torture and bloody murder, that lives a morbid lifestyle wetherin fantasy or real life, thinking komorbidity is fun and to be multimorid is a sign of good health. so if you have the fetish, urge or need to be cuckold with, to take a bloody shower, hates your wife, or wants to kill in the most perversive and bestialic way your husband, thy siblings or parents, and even pets and animals too, this flick is a monster in doing so.

    so i might as well say that this isnt a film for the fainthearted or crossminded in the audience. that could easily have been me too, but the speed of plot development, where you get 12 small horror gore episthels thrown in your gut at the speed of light, that isnt just weird and gruesome, but extremely detailed and believe it or not, hilarious fun. and that made me hang on , unfortunately a religious person might say, but the haddaway of life and death are just as simple as that except for etc.etc.etc.

    this film will become every naitmerish gothic horror enthusiasts wet dream come through and therefore a major cultclassic on its own. much of the reason for that is simply a brilliant production, use of changing filming tecniques, cool animation, cgi and visual effects, the cast must be mentioned however they might be a big surplus that just commits the directors orders come through, the make up artists and costume department has gone bananas, and as a whole the filmography, soundwork and clever editing makes your eyes and ears bleed rustic tears.

    before stating the finals, one word about the choice of music and additional score, that is devious as well as simple, born and made for horror, gore and rigor mortis. so if you cant listen to a philosophic and filantropic skelleton, doing the knucklestick drum whirl on the barreldrum, using obscene and merely antigood and devilproned vocals, then skip this.

    for the rest of us , and especially me, the grumpy old man, think this was a film of shock and awe, and its a warm recommend, warmer than the 7th cirkel of dantes inferno
