XX (2017)

Horror anthology movies are still alive and well. While this is nowhere near as good as Creepshow or Tales from the Darkside: The Movie, it does have its moments.

Of the four, I liked the third one the best. It was called “Don’t Fall” and involved a group of campers who find some cave paintings that serve as a warning. One of the friends becomes possessed by a deadly spirit in the night and goes after the other friends.

The second story “The Birthday Party” was more funny than scary, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

The other two stories were just average, and frankly, pretty unmemorable. In “The Box.” some guy on a train shows a kid what’s in his present box, which inexplicably causes the boy to stop eating. Anorexia is pretty terrifying, but I just didn’t get what this one was trying to do. Then, “Her Only Living Son” was about the child of Satan or something.
