The Horror Network (2014/Wild Eye DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: C- Film: C-

An anthology of five horror shorts, The Horror Network, is a low budget collection from new filmmakers in the genre. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't a linking story to span across the whole thing to fill in the gaps, it's more of a collection of shorts back to back with title cards.

Serial killers, ghostly phone calls, inner demons, otherworld monsters, and creepy stalkers collide in this frightening anthology. Five of horror's most promising new directing talents join forces to pay homage to classics like Creepshow, Tales from the Crypt, V/H/S, and ABCs of Death and weave an unforgettable, disturbing tapestry of terror.

Shorts on the disc include Edward, The Quiet, Merry Little Christmas (in Spanish), and The Deviant One, which is an experimental film that reigns over the others.

Presented in standard definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and 1.85:1 (depending on the short) and a lossy Dolby 5.1 track, the overall quality is not too bad. Extras include Extended Cut: The Deviant One and trailers for other Wild Eye releases.
