Those familiar will be happy to hear that this latest installment provides all of the things that we have come to expect from this series. And though the overall quality of the stories contained herein are not the strongest this series has to offer. They are also nowhere near the weakest entries of this series. Quality wise they lay somewhere in the middle.
The two stories in this installment that leave the strongest lasting impression also happen to be the last two stories. The exorcism bit in the fourth story and its subversive use of humor remind us of what is so great about this series when they get things right. The fifth story though not a humorous as the aforementioned fourth story. Its exploration of ‘scorned women’ makes it one of the more durable stories in the series.
