Thoughts on 100 Candles

Thoughts100 Candles is a horror anthology that does bring us a series of very good horror shorts, each one takes the story in a very unexpected direction, which are a joy to watch. Most will give us a twist along the way that will leave us shocked, while the connecting story between the friends telling the story has its own mystery about what is going on through the game, they are playing requiring scary stories. The film does have a weakness, that being there doesn’t seem to be an introduction to the title of the different stories, which makes it harder to discuss certain ones without talking about what is going on. If you want to see a series of films that will highlight a host of directors and what they can bring to the horror genre, this is going to get plenty of scares along the way.

Final Thoughts 100 Candles is a great set of horror short stories that will bring a selection of horrors to us.
