Horror anthology film contains six horror shorts by six different horror filmmakers. Five of these shorts are okay but otherwise unremarkable tales that should keep the attention of horror fans. But one short film of the six, Douglas Buck's THE ACCIDENT, is a genuine masterpiece. This one deals with a young child trying to make sense of the reality of death, in all its unfairness and inscrutability. A remarkably simple plot with significant philosophical weight and immense emotional impact. This one won't scare you so much as make you cry. It's one of the best films I've ever seen. Even film fans who detest the horror genre will appreciate THE ACCIDENT. The above five rating applies to THE ACCIDENT only. The other shorts in THE THEATRE BIZARRE would be rated three stars by me.
