Neil Gaiman's Likely Stories
Adapted from the dark tales of prolific author Neil Gaiman (Coraline, American Gods, Stardust), this collection of distinct, odd and brilliant short stories is both cinematic and strange. In each film, each character is compelled to share their story and we're drawn into their very act of telling tall tales. While each episode has its own lead character, they are backed by an ensemble cast that play across all four bold and original films.
Simon is a man of routine. Rising, dressing, travelling to work on the DLR. Every day is the same. His sense of self is slipping away as he becomes (perhaps literally) someone else.
Feeders and Eaters
We’re caught in the nocturnal world of the all-night cafe where a waitress is told a love story – a strange, Gothic, warped and weird love story.
A late-night barfly is engaging in the tradition of weaving club stories for his fellow drinkers
Strange and thought-provoking. Some of these tales really need to be watched twice.
"Feeders and Eaters" were the closest to horror. "Foreign Parts" was interesting. The others were so-so.
Love almost everything Neil Gaiman does.
I'm a simple man... I see Neil Gaiman, I rate 5 skulls. Some really interesting plots in these little mini episodes. A tad Black Mirror-esque.
