Dark stories mostly, but not from beyond the grave
I watched Dark Stories: Tales from Beyond the Grave on DVD. It is not a feature length film, but a collection of short films. It could be called an anthology according to the dictionary definition, but is not a traditional anthology film. There is no linking story, and each short has its own titles and end credits. The main title is only on the box and the DVD menu; it is not part of the films.
It was rather deceptive of the distributor to market this as a horror anthology. It's really more of a collection of art films, some of which have some dark themes, but most of which are not best described as horror films. That said, they are pretty interesting. Followed by two other Dark Stories short film compilations that aren't entirely horror either.
