|X was the real Y||It turns out that man was the real collection of mostly-disjointed horror stories.|
I didn't hate Southbound, but I don't have a lot of good things to say about it. It was enjoyable enough to watch, but it was also very forgettable. Like many (most?) modern horror anthologies, it is best described as a less good collection of Twilight Zone episodes but with gore.
[SPOILER] The thing that is supposed to set this one apart is that the stories are all linked together in an unending loop. I did not feel this worked very well. The cut between 2 and 3 made it feel like it was a single jumbled story. I also didn't enjoy the cut between 3 and 4. 5 and 1 was decent though.
