A long time ago was so popular called anthology horror. From "House of horrors Dr. Terror" to the "Tales of the crypt" — there is something alluring and exciting in to give a completely different creative people to speak on the topic of horror. Professional entertainer Mick Garris still nurtures and cherishes this subgenre; not what zero he released his brainchild — series "Masters of horror". "Theater of nightmares" came out, probably, a sort of anachronism. Now such a film is perceived wildly the format of the series, however, it is recognized that the segments of "Cinema" have the potential or at least they can clearly distinguish advantages and disadvantages.

It all begins quite cheerfully. "Cinema" consists of 5 separate stories, each of which connected through the old Cinematheque: random people come in building overgrown Projectionist in the performance of a drunken Mickey Rourke indeterminate age shows people creative episode-horror.

The first name "Incident in the forest" tells the story of Samantha. The girl tries to escape from the maniac, clearly inspired by the slasher of the 80s — "Welder". "Welder" is wearing a mask, uh, welder, and creative kills friends Samantha — Jason Mike. Stamps and parody pompous American slasher plunge sharply in the side, when the "Welder" explains his motivation: sci-Fi direction, suddenly, has been successful. The only negative to this story, filmed by Alejandro Brugues is that "Cabin in the woods" did the same thing, but with great timing and ingenuity.

The second story under the title "Mirare" (i.e. "Miracle") are removed Joe he his style is recognizable. The heroine of the name of Anna is suffering from bias about her appearance — the woman's face disfigured by scar. It is engaged in the guy's dream who is generous and ready to pay for plastic surgery. Anna soon realizes that the intentions of the groom and plastic surgeon ominous. Episode rather removed not in the format of horror, but in a comedic tone... even with a weak ending.

The third story is about priest children's boarding school. Ryuhei Kitamura, the Director of the segment refers to the "the Exorcist" and"Omena", but the script itself is still fades in the concept about the exorcism. It seems that the Director wanted to pay tribute to this strange trend in the cinema of horror, but the atmosphere gets the third story came out incoherent and tasteless.

The fourth story ("Path to output") — more ambitious, but still feel the misfire. Psychedelic piece, filmed in black-and-white format, tells the story of the woman, fearing that it goes mind. This series could work in the format of the series-anthology (ironic that in the episode starred Elizabeth Reaser of"the Ghosts of the house on the hill"), but not exactly here because of the small duration and techniques cheap exploitation.

Finally, the last episode under the name "Dead" for the author's Garissa simply not working. The boy and his parents were left to die. Parents were safely dead, and that child survived and learned to see dead people. Sloppy and full of logical holes the episode is well directed, but the rules of its functioning seem so ghostly that note which it ends, not even make sense. As well as and the closing thought of the hero Rourke — all the choice of narrator is rather unfortunate.

Collections of horror are often unsuccessful and their completely different approaches. What well, the "Theater of nightmares" should be as a case in point. Small stylistic and thematic repetition between segments is commendable: the creators, despite the different techniques have been able to sustain consistency in the narrative.
