| Not horrible but also not for me like me you've probably watched the trailer (red band preferably) and that sparked your interest. I mean come on.....26 letters with a different director for each one?!?! I was initially nervous thinking it was gonna be off the wall gory and snuff film like but its the opposite. Majority of the short films are comedic and has no horror element to it. I am not disappointed that I watched it, just the fact that my expectations were set very high and after watching letter "A" I knew it wasn't gonna be as bad as I originally thought. Now keep in mind I've probably never heard of more than half of these directors so their style might not be for me but all in all it was corny. If there is a director that you really like their style then you may like it but without having any spoilers in my review the only letter I liked was "D" and maybe the end result of "X". I hope this review helps everybody that has that curious bug inside of them.
