Halloween playlist #36 - Extraordinary Tales (2015)
Stylistically uneven and somehow overstays it's welcome in spite of only being about 75 minutes long, this movie may feature some cool visuals in a few of the segments, but that is never enough. Not even stock narrations by legends like Christopher Lee and Bela Lugosi can add charm to this project, and actually only help make the whole affair feel very gimmicky. There was potential here and in spite of my criticisms, it isn't a bad movie in a lot of ways, just nothing at all noteworthy. Watch it for the animation itself, if you like gothic style art, but that's all you'll take away from this anthology of sorts.
