Excellent, fresh horror-anthology
18 September 2015 | by navinramaswaranSee all my reviews

Checked Southbound out at the Midnight Madness screening at TIFF 2015 and it was a blast. A throwback to the horror-anthology style of the 80's but with a fresh twist on the wraparound. The device in which each segment flows into the next was unique and added a new layer to the experience.

I am a huge fan of horror anthologies in general (VHS, ABC's of Death, Late Night Double Feature, etc.) but occasionally they seem like a collection of shorts thrown together. While there is a charm to those types of anthologies, Southbound is clearly well thought out and designed.

Loved all the segments, with "The Accident" being my favourite. This is a well written, shot, directed and performed feature. Highly recommended.
