The film is one of few anthologies released this year that is already making a great impression and changing the face of Horror cinema industry, which is finally shaping up.

Starting with the changing of stereotypes by promoting the Femdom subculture, then with the changing of the Found Footage subculture, and now with the changing of the Anthology subculture.

Speaking primarily on Anthologies; I can definitely see a tremendous change, almost dramatically. We have gone from cheap, low budget, cheesy anthologies, to decent, quality anthologies almost overnight. It is a breath of fresh air.
