For those of you who may not like your horror on the perverse side, you'll want to skip Little Deaths. There is definitely a lot of incredibly disturbing and often shocking material offered up in the anthology, however all of it approached tastefully. Our trio of directors smartly shy away from using an overabundance of gore, letting audiences stew in their own juices about the horrors we're not seeing (particularly in "Bitch") and that's what makes the film so effective- once you see it, Little Deaths continues to resonate long after the credits have finished, making it a truly effective piece of filmmaking by Hogan, Parkinson and Rumley.
For the DVD release of the flick, Image doesn't really give fans a whole lot on the Little Deaths disc. We get a brief behind-the-scenes featurette and a trailer but that's about it. I really wish there would have been a commentary track at least for Little Deaths- considering the material and the bold performances in the flicks, I would have loved to hear more from Hogan, Parkinson and Rumley about their experiences making their segments and what went into their stories and the visuals within their films.
As an anthology, Little Deaths successfully embraces the world of taboos fearlessly- with sex and death being topics which have both mortified and intrigued audiences endlessly throughout the years. All in all, Little Deaths is tailor-made for edgier horror fans who enjoy stories that push the boundaries of conventional and classic genre storytelling but casual fans will definitely find the flick a bit hard to stomach in the end.
