    HORRORx52 (2019)

    46. Horror Anthology
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    What we have here are a series of Holiday themed horror shorts. The results are mixed to say the least.

    Valentine's Day
    A weak opener that relies on the concept of a bullied teenager who ultimately snaps (Carrie more or less). Her situation in school is dire so she falls in love with her teacher but one of her bullies also fancy the teacher. Then we learn that the teacher needs a new heart…
