“All the Creatures Were Stirring” is a very Lynchian kind of movie with some touches of good humor and plenty of scary moments.

Seasonal-vignettes were well-combined and smartly put together by a group of remarkable filmmakers, plus exceptional performers.

When a blind-date goes wrong, the atmosphere of this tiny, little creepy theater plays a series of obscure and bizarre tales by a group of funky performers.

Right from the beginning, the couple’s interaction with the workers and patrons is awkwardly funny.

When they sit to enjoy the show, a mute presenter introduces every story. She has the look of a character out of David Lynch’s movies.

The stories are rich and fascinating. It begins with a mind-numbing Christmas office-party that turns into a bloody Russian-roulette game. 

A late-shopping madness ends up in a psycho “Chupacabras” eating people in the parking lot. A not-so-good neighbors' experience converts in a twisted version of Charles Dickens’ a “Christmas Carol.” A dead deer avenges itself. Finally, a surreal extraterrestrial adventure at a friends’ dinner table gives closeness and hope for another couple.

"All the Creatures Were Stirring" is a really creepy, weird, and even frightening anthology and at the same time, it is fun to watch. 

This independent horror flick is reminiscent of the TV Series “Tales from the Crypt.” A show from the 1980’s that I loved as a teen.
