★★★★★ Stars
While I wouldn't say people need to run out and get this movie and watch it, I would definitely recommend it if you and friends/family were planning a horror movie night.

When it first started, not gonna lie, I didn't know it was 3 stories in 1. So when stuff started happening so suddenly, I was like "wow, this movie is either going to be full of horror non-stop, or it's going to be extremely boring because they're using all the good stuff upfront." - so you can imagine the look of confusion when the first one ended and the second one started. Lol I'm not mad at all, I just should have read more about the movie Lol But, I'm glad they did it this way. It's perfect from those horror movie marathons.

Tarot 1: The Unseen - Was actually pretty sad, honestly. But it had just enough of the suspense that it keeps you on edge wondering what is around each corner. I wasn't much of a fan of the characters though, they all seemed kinda toxic towards each other? I didn't feel much of a connection with them but I did feel bad for who the ghost was. I get stuff happens, but come on.... That... is so messed up and heartbreaking.

Tarot 2: Attached - This one wasn't scary at all. I actually cried because it broke my heart. As someone who has been through that twice, I know how scary that was for her. I wish I could hug her so bad, she didn't deserve that. She's the only one I felt sorry for. Everyone else can fuck off. Even her fake ass good for nothing friend. I want to say more so much but I really don't want to give to much away though I feel like I already have. I'm sorry.

Tarot 3: Ghost Boy - Yoooo!!! THIS ONE WAS MY FAVORITE!!! So again it wasn't all that scary but the story with this one just seemed sooo much more interesting and promising. I felt more connected with the characters in this one and I felt like it had more of a story to it without being confusing. This one, I would say is worth watching the whole movie for. The first two were okay but mostly just pulled at the heartstrings, this one was the golden egg for me. It's like they saved the best for last. Lol

So again, while this movie wasn't actually scary it was more along the lines of stories you tell at sleepovers in candlelight to get everyone creeped out. Lol Totally worth a view during horror marathons.
Also; if anyone ever wants to read your future and promises a once in a lifetime thing... run. Lol
