      After reading the six reviews here, and then watching the film, I canonly conclude that these six are either friends of the actors, or theywork for the production company. This is one of the worst indie horrorfilms I've ever seen, and I've seen plenty.

      Think of the very worst of 70s low-budget horror films….now put thisone in that category. There are three parts to the anthology: WorkLife, Home Life, and Sex Life. The worst by far is The Programmer inWork Life. This part had some of the lamest acting I've ever seen onfilm and that goes for the entire cast. Not a one of them could havewon an audition for a high school play. Dreadful.

      In Home Life the acting improved, and it showed some early promise ofwit, but the wretched screen play fizzled out before the end. And yetthis part was the pick of a bad lot.

      Sex Life, had it been played for humor, might have been marginallyentertaining, especially the scene that's a takeoff on the movie TEETH,but on steroids. But weeping Jesus on the cross, the acting, direction,and plot begged to be put out of its misery. But I did like the kids'makeup.

      Do not believe a word of the first six reviews here….unbelievable howanyone could find even a modicum of praise for this rubbish. I onlystruggled through it so I could write this review as a warning. Sheesh!

      I really do love horror anthologies and wish there were more made. Iwas hoping to be able to look past the budget and enjoy the film.

      Unfortunately it is impossible to look past non professional actors andwatch a film in which this will be the only movie the main characterswill be in because it just makes you want to cringe wit every line ofdialog spoken.

      This has three stories and a wraparound story much like Creep show. Theonly story bearable is the final of the three.

      The movie is not scary, has zero tension, and when it attempts humor itfalls flat on its face.

      I do not recommend this movie to even die hard horror fans. I dobelieve the stories could have been rewritten and made into a goodlittle horror flick. However, this does not happen when you get yourfriends and family as the cast.

      This was a truly horrible movie. Production value was extremely low,but not in a good way. This movie just has nothing and that's reallyamazing cause even a blind squirrel gets a nut sometimes. To start withthere is really no coherent story line. To follow it up the acting wasmore like something I would expect to see in a 2 grade elementary play.And for the third strike there weren't even any decent looking girls tohelp pass the time. After the first story I was ready to turn it offbut instead I went to IMDb.com and saw the good reviews and thoughtmaybe one of the other stories would have some redeeming factors,unfortunately I was wrong if you have already rented this movie quicklyburn it.

      Just read the reviews. Very easy to tell that they're written by peopleinvolved with the movie. Half of them were surely even written by thesame person as they end in the same way, with an enthusiastic, "If youwant to see a great movie or great horror or a good time or whatever,see Slices of Life" followed by an exclamation point. It's just sadthat someone would go to that much trouble to get people to see a moviethat's so terrible. Don't have much to say other than that. I get theappeal of wanting to make movies, it's what I'm going to school for. Ithink it's disheartening to see that some people worked so hard (itisn't easy, I know that, whether you're making something good or bad,filmmaking requires some real effort) on something that turned out tobe garbage.

      All that there's left to say is, if you want to see a great horrormovie with gore-galore and plenty of laughs….. well then maybe you'dbe better off seeing something else!

      After watching Slices of Life, SOL, I am reminded of what was once toldto me. I know you can, but you shouldn't. In my case it was trying tosteal road signs while drunk, in SOLs case, it's being made.

      I take offense to the numerous reviews of this film which are clearlyfriends of people who worked on the film or those workers themselves.Simply put, don't review if you are related to the project, it's tackyand looks desperate.

      I feel like direction may have been seriously lacking for the multitudeof actors in this film. Not knowing where to look, not knowing what todo with their body, not knowing motivation for emotion or for lines…you name it, they don't have it. Another potential case of aDirector/Editor/ADR/writer/Props/Producer/Makeup Artist doing a bit toomuch of everything else and not enough on any one job to do it well.

      This all could also stem from the 4 stories. I'm not going to go intoeach in depth since each could have a whole review and it would takefar too long to write. So as an overall… You can't just say, hey,we've got 3 maybe OK ideas so lets just add a meaningless frame storyand make 3 shorts. They don't stand alone and together they look evenworse. Work life features meaningless dialogue with characters who haveno impact on the story (stretching a thin plot for length). Not caringmuch about or for the protagonist means the climax (if not the wholestory) is meaningless…which a girl who likes a guy who feels lonelybeing shot in the head is a pretty poor climax regardless. Then thedenouement is cheesy and completely ridiculous. Home Life (book 2)starts out promising but quickly falls flat as the set up is trumped byan over eager jump into the horror. Then the "twist" is basically givento you after the husband first walks in the door at the beginning.There is no rising action as things simply just happen. One minute it'sa a baby shower, then a demon child. Then a loving talk with a husband,then another haunting. Then supermarket, where visions occur. thenhome, where more visions and another haunting… No build up makes forscenes feeling lazily put together as well as just a prelude to somegory death. As for book 3, Sex Life… it's better than the rest as astory, but somethings are simply bothersome. The girl being molested byher uncle then getting vengeance with her crotch monster is unnecessaryas well as the characters reaction (or non reaction) to her being rapedin the first place. Not saying this story is good, merely put togetherbetter…as unbelievable as it is. The 4th frame story is just weak andpointless with zero pay off as of course the girl named Mira is in factIrma…must have taken a page from Troll 2. Also, the fact that she hasamnesia seems to be lost as she knows the protocol of the motel at theend while all she did was read her books at the front desk.

      I understand there are 3 separate stories wrapped up in the framing 4thstory but the visuals within each sequence are confused. constantbreaking of 180 line, unmotivated (frankly uninspired) cameramovements, poor focus at times, completely unnecessary insert shots,inconsistent coverage, etc. Bottom line, not shot well.

      Continuity suffers through this film, as a script supervisor it bothersme to see these things. However I do recognize editing has a big effecton this and given the massive editing problems through this film thatmay be where the continuity errors stemmed from. Bad cuts, bad ADR,horrible SFX, using every cheap filter and general effect trick FCP orperhaps even Premiere has, I got a headache from the constant flashes,dutch angles, and digital shakes/zooms.

      Audio dies in this film. At times it's normal quality, then dips to oncamera quality, then disappears, then reappears in ADR version… Thisisn't surprising as it took 4 years to film this so it's not realisticto believe they kept the same mixers or mics over that time frame.

      Look, bottom line is this should have been just the stories as shorts,this way the proper funds and time could be allocated to make thestories more interesting and the final screen product more valuable andentertaining. But as is, it's a cheap attempt at Creepshow or even aslightly more adult version of Are You Afraid of the Dark? Myrecommendation… avoid if you can. Not even much fun to try to mock asafter a while even to riff becomes tedious.

      A movie that – in theory – could've passed muster as rejected TalesFrom The Crypt flick. The movie is three separate stories with anoverall framing sequence set in a Bates Hotel ripoff The sequencedoesn't really make sense though they obviously needed something tokeep the movie organized. Each story itself would've had some redeemingquality but the director went with the cheap route going with blood,gore, and cheap SFX. The first one is probably the 'best' of the three.The second one shows its cards too early to be of interest. The lastone is of the "kids run out of gas and find a place" variety whichmanages to throw a history twist and but then goes straight into thedumpster halfway in.

      This movie could've been a WHOLE lot better and that's the real wastehere (and why the movie gets only a 3).

      I do love Horror movies. I do love B-movies. And hell yeah, I lovemyself a good trash movie every now and then. But this – uh, movie -this is one of the most boring, lame and totally dumb films I have everseen. Don't even think about watching it. This movie totally sucks. Theacting is bad. The gore is idiotic, lame and cheap. The story lines donot even exist. THIS SUCKS. I read some of the first reviews, but likemy predecessor said, they must have been friends of either the directoror the production company. No person in its right mind could enjoythis. Not even the director can. Every 3rd rate Italian zombie flick ofthe 70s had more ideas, better plot and more talented actors than thisstupid piece of crap.

      As a fan of low budget and indie films I was so disappointed in thismovie. I liked the concept of the three part anthology, however it wasso poorly written it just fell apart. The first part "Work Life" wasthe stupidest thing I've ever seen. I could tell from the verybeginning I made a mistake when I choose this movie, but I kept an openmind assuming it has to get better, disappointingly it was just one bigmess. I have seen better acting in grade school plays, seriously itamazes me that these "actors" are not embarrassed by this disaster of afilm. It was not scary, suspenseful or even humorous! Just sad, so sadthat this ever made it to my Video Store and I was lured into rentingby the interesting cover. Perhaps the only interesting thing about thisfilm, was it's DVD cover.

      Take heed and don't waste your hard earned money on this.

      As everyone else already mentioned above about the movie every littlefact is completely legit. From my personal POV let me give you a simpleexample of what this movie would make you feel like. I am the kind ofperson who never comments on you tube or public forums as I think itdoesn't matter what one thinks by stating your opinion,I have beenusing IMDb for almost three years but literally after watching thismovie I registered to this site just to write this stuff about thestupid joke I just witnessed which people consider a "movie". I haveseen students with no experience or funds making and posting bettershort clips/movies/songs/spoofs on Youtube than this pathetic movie,Not only it disappoints you for seeking a good horror movie but it willmake you hold a grudge against these no life actors who made thisterrible joke.If this is what they call acting is,then I guess I'm donewatching movies… It is so lame and badly acted that words aren'tenough..the only way one can understand the viewers pain is to actuallywatch the movies themselves.. Please take my word for it,Go spend thosetwo hours with your family,friends or go do anything ingeneral,anything….anything will be way more worth than this POS…

      The on screen title III SLICES OF LIFE amusingly renders the "three" inits Roman numeral, aligning the look of its rough edges with thehand-hewn lettering on the covers of three "books of life," a centralmotif in this gruesome horror effort.

      This omnibus movie, which is neither as bad as some here have said noras fantastic as others purport, alternately succeeds in its variousreworkings of horror movie motifs and fails on some of those trappings,too. Apparently inspired by George A. Romero's CREEPSHOW but alsoowning much to the classic British omnibus flicks from Amicus and otherstudios (TALES FROM THE CRYPT [1972] comes to mind), 3 SLICES OF LIFE– I shall drop the Romans as the end credits revert to the Latin — isa mixed bag but one that, in the end, I liked.

      The best episode in the trilogy, SEX LIFE, closes the film. Neatlyconstructed, it weaves two seemingly unrelated tales into a clever payoff — the heroine of the piece unwittingly inherits a literallymonstrous family curse, which neatly ties up some plotting involving anincestuous horror that begs for final justice. The characters in SEXLIFE — the villains, that is — are not what they seem, which is anice change from the previous two tales, which are much more obvious intheir villainry. The acting in SEX LIFE is, likewise, far better thanin the preceding segments, HOME LIFE and WORK LIFE.

      However, SEX LIFE (as with the rest of the segments) suffers fromdirector-writer Anthony G. Sumner's insistence upon bringing inunrelated horror tropes (the legend of Countess Bathory, in this case)that have no business in the movie at all. Sumner shoehorns variousin-jokes and references as if to tell the viewer he knows his stuffabout Romero, Sam Raimi, and David Cronenberg — as well as the morearcane trivia, such as Bathory. This indulgence takes away from thebasic storytelling, though, which is otherwise good.

      SEX LIFE is good enough to stand alone without the baggage of 3 SLICE'sframing story or the other pieces, of which the framing story is themost valid. It conjures a spooky was-it-a-dream attitude brought intofocus via some supernatural folderol involving personality transfer;there is also a clever use of bringing in characters from the otherepisodes to create mild chills.

      The second segment, HOME LIFE is also smartly framed, presenting sometruly frightening ghost children who haunt the very pregnantprotagonist. But the piece is frankly overlong and the nice build-up ofsuspense is damaged by a very messy, gory finale. Here, again, Sumnerhas a handle on special effects sequences but tends to fall back oncheap tricks instead of trusting in what is essentially decentstorytelling.

      The bane of many low-budget horror movie directors is they give up andrely on banal in-jokes and references to other movies to cover upobvious plot holes; or, they are just lazy and think a good wink and anod in the direction of zombified George Romero-isms will tide themover. Meanwhile, the audience feels cheated. Sumner cheats us in thelatter way in the first tale, WORK LIFE. An ostensible comic-gore romp,this segment offers a nerdy office worker who feels slighted and sendsout his "zombie email virus" disk to infect the world. His transformedcolleagues become drooling EVIL DEAD-like zombies and chase him arounduntil destroyed by gun-toting government bio-terror soldiers, in themanner of Romero's THE CRAZIES.

      In spite of these excesses, Sumner is a talent to watch. 3 SLICES OFLIFE succeeds admirably in some ways, especially in the last segment.Its failings may be chalked up to a filmmaker simply trying to bite offmore than he can chew.
