Like any other Anthology series There are some Shorts that are better than the others. Over-all I found every one to be entertaining and you get just about every genre you think of here.

A few of the Shorts that I like the most were:

Sweet Little Unforgettable Thing (a.k.a Slut)- About a small town girl who decides to "re-invent herself in order to be notices by the guys but she instead draws the attention of a killer.

El Gigante - Tells the story of Armando awakens as he attempts to cross over the Mexican border into the U.S. but instead gets kidnapped and forced to fight in an underground wrestling match against the Gigante. The story gets your attention right from the start and there is plenty of action and gore to please all fans.

Witches - While conjuring up some spells a trio of witches get in to a dispute over one of their own who has found love. This is a well written and extremely funny comedy.
