A senseless abomination
6 April 2019 | by hlias_nastosSee all my reviews

After watching this senseless abomination, which its main result was the sick, shocking, disgusting, bloodstained scenes, whose only purpose were to fascinate the viewers who have similar IQ with the one of its creators, I came into two conclusions: First, that this anthology is actually a huge insult to the great traditions of the countries mentioned, (a kind of degrading of these amazing and magical folklore stories) And secondly that surely there is a remarkable channel of communication and cooperation between each idiotic, shallow, without any real talent and without awareness of any kind of work of imaginative literature, foolish filmmaker. I am quite sure though that such a hideous and without substance result, which generally seems to be a"tendency" that appear in most forms of art besides the 7th, won't find any fertile ground for long. Guys, it is OK to produce a correct Cinematography but I think you should open a book once in a while.
