Creepers Movie Review

creepers horror anthology movie reviewCreepers Movie Review
Excerpts from Denver Johnson’s “31 Days of Horror.”
“Christian Walker adapts Lafcadio Hearn’s short story Of A Promise Broken, and he transforms it into a very moody, melancholy ghost story.Like every other short here, it’s damn well shot, well acted, and while not my favorite of the shorts, it creates a great mood.

Jeremiah Kipp, a director I’ve really been admiring lately, adapts Edgar Allan Poe’s Bernice, and gives the macabre story his usual arthouse bent. It’s another short that favors mood over shock, although it does have a pretty nasty final shot.

Gregory Lamberson, the warped genius behind the Slime City films, gives us Gave Up The Ghost, from author Jeff Strand. This short was hilarious, and worth the price of admission alone.

Finally, like every good anthology, the best is saved for last. Mike T. Lyddon gives us Joe Lansdale’s By The Hair of the Head. Lansdale is such a brilliant writer, and this film does for evil dolls what Annabelle only wishes it could. This was a stylish little piece, and the true highlight of the set.”
