        …Yeah, it could be cool.., the first one was pretty cool.., I tend to like “moovees within moovees”.., I guess it makes me feel like I’m getting “more” 4 my $.. Usually I dont go for what I consider the “more realistic” depictions of the evil people can inflict on each other.., eg; I just watched “The Den” several hours ago.., & I STILL have the most horrible, seriously creepy feeling inside.., almost like a..”grief”.., or, “despair”… Dont get me wrong.., it’s excellently done, well made, etc.., TOO WELL MADE…!!! I dont know.., maybe it was the intentional humor, and the often surrealistic approach in many of the vignettes of “ABC’s”.., but I didnt come away freaked like I am post “The Den”.. .. ~ Peace..!
