Verdict on Free to a Bad Home

Free to a Bad Home is a horror anthology that follows three different people who interact with an item from a box left on the street. Each story gets to look at a different problem being faced, which shows why the character would want that item.

The short stories work very well to make the most of the limited time. It makes it feel like the people might well know each other, being surrounded within the same town. This is something that could have easily been skipped over. The horror elements do become more intense as the movie unfolds but never reach the highest shock value.

Final ThoughtsFree to a Bad Home is an entertaining horror anthology.
