    I was excited to find this anthology up for review at Net Galley I m still very new over there, and I figured that there couldn t possibly be a better pick for me to request I have loved anthologies like this since I was a kid I cut my teeth on the likes of Dennis Etchison, Graham Masterton, Harlan Ellison and Dougles E Winter and I ve read a number of anthologies edited by Ellen Datlow Unfortunately, of the twenty three tales within, there were only 7 that rated 4 stars or above with me.In I was excited to find this anthology up for review at Net Galley I m still very new over there, and I figured that there couldn t possibly be a better pick for me to request I have loved anthologies like this since I was a kid I cut my teeth on the likes of Dennis Etchison, Graham Masterton, Harlan Ellison and Dougles E Winter and I ve read a number of anthologies edited by Ellen Datlow Unfortunately, of the twenty three tales within, there were only 7 that rated 4 stars or above with me.In this collection, the stories are loosely connected by film To be clear, not all of these stories are horror or dark fiction, which was fine It s just that a lot of them didn t resonate with me I will brie...
