So, we recently looked at the anthology collection entitled Monster Pool, which was used to showcase shorts by Indie filmmakers from Ottawa. The guys behind the series were good enough to give me access to the second chapter, which is commercially available and was released in 2016.
The first thing that struck me is that the whole thing has a higher production value than the first outing, perhaps as one would expect. The number of shorts are fewer, the quality more consistent and the length of each is increased, but there isn’t as obvious an overarching theme – the first series of films featured a key – this is also a portmanteau film rather than a simple anthology.
