I was practically born with a weakness for anthology horror. My mom raised me on scary stuff. There were nights on the couch, watching scary movies and munching popcorn with the lights off, and I always had a weakness for The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits. As I got older, I discovered I liked anthology horror movies like The Twilight Zone Movie and Creepshow a lot, and in recent years, I’ve been lamenting the loss of the genre on screens both big and small, so when I saw this, I had to share it.

Ryan Spindell directed this short documentary on the subject, “We Come In Pieces: The Rebirth of the Horror Anthology Film,” and it’s an interesting view.
