Robot Carnival

Source: IMDb

What is it?

The 1987 Japanese anime anthology original video animation (OVA) Robot Carnival.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this anime OVA:

This anthology contains eight short animated films from top Japanese animators, all concerned with robotics.

The range is broad, from comedy to suspense to love stories.

Not every segment is completely successful, but the overall quality is high.

Dedicated anime fans should be pleased.

~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

My Thoughts

I saw this or part of this anime (animated) anthology movie many years ago probably on the Syfy channel, and recently my brother GC and I watched it.

This movie was not as good as I thought that it would be, it was better in the beginning with my favorite being Presence, but things got worse from the middle on; and so overall this was pretty scatterbrained, experimental, and incomplete.

I hope that someone will make a Robot Carnival 2 one day that is better than this.

The end,

Trick ‘R Treat (2007)

Source: IMDb

What is it?

The 2007 American anthology horror comedy movie Trick ‘R Treat by Michael Dougherty.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

Prolific director Bryan Singer takes a turn towards horror as the producer of this Halloween shocker directed by X2 and Superman Returns screenwriter Mike Dougherty.

With four interwoven tales concerning a high-school principal who moonlights as a vicious serial killer, a college-age virgin who’s saving herself for that special someone, a woman whose hatred of Halloween is only exceeded by her husband’s love of the mischievous holiday, and a callous group of teens who carry out an unforgivably cruel prank, this fall frightener mixes Tarantino-style storytelling with the kind of chills that can only occur on the darkest day of the year.

Brian Cox, Anna Paquin, Dylan Baker, and Leslie Bibb all star in a Halloween treat that’s sure to deliver a few nasty tricks.

~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Final Thoughts

This was my first time watching this movie, my brother GC had seen it before and had mentioned it to me before, and recently Chris Stuckmann and his wife made a video about it so my brother GC suggested that we watch it so we did.

This movie surprised me because it held up well and looks like it could have been made today, it is well-directed, it actually manages to play around with time in a way that works, there are some twists, and it is one of the best Halloween movies that I have seen.

The end,
