  Every day, the various titans of streaming release new original content — some to theaters, some to live solely on the information super highway.

Horror anthologies are nothing new or buried deep within the genre. Movie series such as Creepshow, V/H/S, and Volumes Of Blood have told multiple stories within a single film, among many others.
