'Sinister Visions' is a killer collection of homages to the greatest monsters and psychotics of our time, Twilight Zone style.
on September 27, 2013
As an anthology, Sinister Visions is a pretty eclectic mix. The main novelty of the collection is that each film represents a different country. But an interesting connection is also that each film deals with the objectification, victimization, and ultimately power of women. In `Succubus' its obvious the succubi is the strong dangerous female; `My Undead Girlfriend' really builds on objectification (he uses her in order to impress her parents despite the fact she's a zombie and will likely eat them all), `Mother Knows Best' borders on Norman Bates quality mommy issues, `A Woman Scorned' is, again, pretty obvious - its an ex gets revenge on the current torture/punishment film; and `Genital Genocide' goes the extra mile with blatant exploitation of everything in the mind of a sadistic serial killer. So though the films deal with different subject matter (succubus, zombies, etc) there is a thread that combines them other than the semi-innocuous title. Also the opportunity for sequels is endless. I do hope to see more volumes, from all over the world, in the near future.~ the Creepercast
