For those who don't expect it, "Hide"will hit hard in the pit of your stomach.

There are far better-written and creepier anthologies around to waste any time on Two Sentence Horror Stories.

Creative anthology series has mature topics, violence.

More than many recent adventures into the twist-forward form, Two Sentence Horror Stories finds the right balance and speed for its anthology.

Aug 8, 2019 | Rating: 8.0/10 | Full Review…

The formula for each episode makes the series endlessly engaging, though the horrors it depicts aren't always effective.

Granted, the genre is horror and horrific stuff is expected but so far "Two Sentence Horror Stories" is pretty one note and a discordant note in this #MeToo era.

    Wow! What a truly uniquely disturbing, ingenious tv show this is. From the haunting ‘2 Sentence Horror' title, to the meanings those sentences connect, the acting is great (especially Episode 3). Bravo, CW Network! Looking forward to having a 2nd Season.

    There's really not much to see here. It's been done better very recently, and the comparisons to Black Mirror are ridiculous. The first episode "Legacy" is hard to even make it all the way through because one keeps waiting for something that makes sense to happen. Episode 2 "Hide" - I was hopeful it could be better. Grr. I honestly don't know if they're trying to spoof Purge & mirror at the same time. I will say there was some nice enough camera shots where I saw what they were trying to do there, and it was nice with the material that they had. the camera work was mostly really well done. I won't be revisiting it.

    So far, only two episodes in, I would have to say that this show has me hooked. I like the fact that it is a 30 minute show, often I find that the hour anthologies tend to add things to the story that are not needed, the 30 minute format, the stories are direct and to the point. Its not perfect by any means, the second episode was a bit of a disappointment after the first, but still entertaining. If you haven't seen it the concept is simple enough, at the beginning they give you the first line of a two sentence horror story, then tell the tale and at the end you get the second line. The first episode "Gentleman" had a deliciously creepy twist I did not see coming at all. The second episode "Squirm" was a little more contrived and with a plot hole you could drive a Buick through, but the gross out factor was strong and held my attention. I have high hopes for this show. Recommended.
