The Overview:  Beware of spoilers…

8 Days to Hell is a low-budget horror anthology consisting of seven connected tales.  Each tale is designated as a “day”.  I made it through day five before I tapped out.  It just wasn’t for me.  For example…

Day One – an actor tries out for the part of a gangster.  After his audition the producer (Roberts) berates the actor’s performance saying he should have projected Brando-style machismo and a frightening image.  The actor leaves, has a drink, is encouraged by a vision/demon and then goes back to re-audition.  This time he does a bad Brando voice and shoots the producer.

Day Two – The actor is having sex with a woman and she turns into a preying mantis who kills the man.

I should have stopped watching there.  Your mileage may differ, but 8 Days to Hell just wasn’t for me, so it gets 1 of 5 stars.
