Anthology/portmanteau films can be great and ones such as The ABCs of Death show that very short shorts can be magnificent in their own right. Now I didn’t review that film, as the vampire segment was so miniscule amongst the full film. This one I have decided to review.
The might be a tad unfair, as it is the shortest of three shorts in a film under 15 minutes and the film is free to watch/download. But I was really taken with this. The score will be for the vampire segment only, the whole thing is greater than the sum of its parts but I think this deserves some kudos. I do have to spoil the vampire segment, however, to actually make an article out of the review but I don’t think that it is too much of a sin especially as there are two more segments – part two (shhhhh! You’ll Wake the dead) is a magnificent horror short and part one (Teddymare) if wonderfully imaginative.
