    • Synopsis
    • Tale Breakdown: To give you a better idea, here are the messages behind each tale:
      1. “The Good Samaritan”
      Morality Message: A pimp is punished by death from 1) stealing money from a cancer stricken breathless old clown (who turns out to be insane) and 2) using females as sex slaves. However, the prostitute gets justice with the help of a deceased victim of the clown’s past.

      2. “Hate Radio”
      Morality Message: A misogynist radio show host gets a taste of his own medicine when he is turned into a woman and captured by his #1 fan, Chopper.

      3. “Mates”
      Morality Message: A woman gets sent a certificate to www.perfectmates.me after being in a relationship with her abusive ex. Ironically, it turns out her perfect mate is actually robot. The tale highlights that women should be treated with love and respect; “The Perfect Man” is not one who is violent to his domestic partner and karma will hit the abusive right back.

      4. “The Prosecutor”
      Morality Message: A Prosecutor faces the truth of his actions when he starts seeing images of the man he wrongly put on death row. As a result, the Prosecutor accidentally kills his family. Bearer of false witness/ failure to admit the truth (especially at the level of the fate of someone’s life) to keep one’s own credibility can lead to extreme consequences that effect more than just the individual.

      5. “The Healer”
      Morality Message: A monetizing Pastor is kidnapped by a clergy member who’s daughter died after using false products sold by the Pastor. Manipulating the weak/ill and milking them for their money instead of healing/helping them in good faith leads to some serious hell to pay.

      6. “Thy Will Be Done”
      Morality Message: Three religious maniacs kidnap a woman who became pregnant after being raped, and force her to have a baby. Turns out, the baby is the devil himself. A woman should have the right to make her own choice about keeping or aborting her baby, particularly when she has been raped.

      7. “White Flight”
      Morality Message: A racist cop orders a futuristic machine that will take him into a “White’s Only” dimension. Exploiting unjust police brutality/racism towards the black community. Treat each other equally, whether white, black, Chinese, Japanese, or blond, etc...

      8. “Ratters” (Interstitial)
      Morality Message: Two millennials’ computers are hacked by “Mr. Malevolent,” who show the boys 7 morality themed horror tales to teach them a lesson Cyber black mailing and bullying (especially for money) is wrong. Respect each other’s privacy, etc.
