★½☆☆ – (2012) – A guy returns home (with his girlfriend) to a Halloween attraction that’s ruined by an escaped convict. There’s much to do about a villain named “Pitchfork,” but too much time is spent on his dull lore. Pretends to set up the next household villain, but the bulk of the production is dedicated to drivel.

★★½☆ – (2014) – Anthology of 26 stories based on each letter of the English alphabet. An improvement over the original, as even the silly segments are handled with some care. “W” is especially disturbing, but many episodes are unique and satisfying in their own way. An overall success.
