Trivia

The segment, "St. Patrick's Day", references the Norwegian folktale "The Lindworm Prince", also known as simply "The Lindworm". While there are several versions of the folktale, the version anthologized in the seminal Asbjornsen and Moe Collection is the most popular one. The folktale tells of a queen giving birth to a snake creature and when the creature is born, it flees into the land. When the creature grows up, it becomes a prince. See more »

So it isn't that easy to make an Anthology after all. That's one of the "positive" things you can take from watching this. If you're mean you could even argue that SyFy has done better feature length movies than most of the shorts being on display here. One thing is for certain: there is not much to cherish to be found here.

And it's a shame, because it did sound cool. Kevin Smith alone doing a short sounds great. But then again, I guess even he was either too busy with other stuff or somehow else occupied. Maybe something else happened, you never know, except you do know where the short stories are going. And almost none of them actually can create a mood, a tension, a story or anything else substantial to hold the viewers attention. There are some neat effects (the Easter Bunny story comes to mind) and occasionally a bit of quality that seems to shine through a story. But in the end, it's more like "whatever" and "why did I watch this again?" feelings that overwhelmingly win and leave you befuddled
