These six stories have more depth than your usual horror anthology segments. This particularity plays for and against the creators. People usually expect simplicity and straightforwardness from these films. These are everything but quintessential horror shorts. Some involve some kind of black magic and most contain some form of gore. None are particularly scary.
Show Unit is about a man inspecting a possible case of home invasion. Incarnation of Naya is about a sacred ritual. Peeper is about a voyeur struck by karma. The List is about black magic used for revenge. The Rescue is about what seems like rabid cannibals; possibly zombies. The last segment, Dara, is the strongest. It is glorified, stylized torture porn.
There are no bad stories, here, but there aren’t masterpieces either. The twists range from poor to inexistent. Most of the time, we go from one segment to another without even noticing the shift, unimpressed, confused or simply bored. The shorts look good, the actors are talented, but the scripts are nothing great. Takut is worth watching but probably won’t leave a mark.
