The Theatre Bizarre (2011) is a recent horror anthology movie which had the critics and audiences scratching their collective heads, because truly some of the stories in this anthology are “beyond bizarre” to quote the host of that short lived TV series.
Six tales of terror which show plenty of blood, gore and skin and a wrap around “story” starring Udo Kier which doesn’t go anywhere, a few of the highlights include Richard Stanley’s “Mother Of Toads” and Tom Savini’s segment (which he also stars in) called “Wet Dreams.”
This film has shown up on Netflix and is available for download HERE.
The 2nd segment shot for Horror Anthology Movie Volume 1 “Thing In the Shed” has been accepted into the Fear Fete Horror Film Festival 2013.

The fourth segment for Volume 1 of The Horror Anthology Movie is a strange one indeed. We are always on the lookout for authentic video or audio of Lovecraft or anything in that vein, and considering that no known film exists with the famous horror author, we were surprised when we received a mysterious package with some very interesting footage.
While we cannot say too much about this film now, we can tell you that it was apparently shot in Arabi, Louisiana during the week of June 9th, 1932 and it is a fact that H.P. Lovecraft was in New Orleans, Louisiana during that time..

One of the best horror anthology films to come out in the last 20 years, writer – director Michael Dougherty’s fine quartet of Halloween terror tales called “Trick ‘r Treat” is an absolute must see for lovers of good horror films and superb anthologies.
Starring True Blood’s Anna Paquin and seasoned pro Dylan Baker, Trick r Treat contains four films, all of which are worth viewing and some of which are truly exceptional in the sub-genre.

Four tales of terror with a nice wrap around story make this Amicus offering a sure bet for Halloween night…or any night for that matter!

No horror anthology movie site would be complete without the original 1972 Tales From The Crypt from Amicus Films. One of the highest rated horror anthologies of all time, this film contains virtually no filler or bombs and boasts some of the most memorable stories and performances with stellar efforts from Peter Cushing, Patrick Magee, Joan Collins and many more.
If you are only familiar with the latter Tales From The Crypt series and subsequent films then you really need to check out this, the first and perhaps the best of all the incarnations.
Tales From The Crypt DVD is currently on sale HERE as a double feature with VAULT OF HORROR!
