“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Slaughter Tales (2012)
Filmed by a 15 year-old over two years (you can actually see him grow) with a camcorder and a reported budget of "about $65," this is exactly what you'd expect. There's a haunted VHS tape, a ghost that gives a warning not to watch it, then a horror anthology that shows a surprisingly deep knowledge of obscure horror for a teenager. It's slow and overlong at 90 minutes, but it has its moments.
