“Is horror the genre that’s best suited for the anthology format? Think hard, just for a moment or two: How many movies outside of horror’s bailiwick can you drum up offhand that come wrapped up as an omnibus? Turn to comedy and you can rifle off titles like The Kentucky Fried Movie, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex*, The Ten and Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life. Switch to sci-fi and there’s Heavy Metal or The Illustrated Man. But horror’s anthology tradition is richer and broader, from Tales from the Darkside to the Creepshow films, from Trick ‘r Treat to Black Sabbath, not to mention the recent V/H/S and ABCs of Death series.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
