TWO SENTENCE HORROR STORIES Season 3 is on Netflix (US) now. It’s essentially a horror anthology full of horror short films based on micro horror stories. Micro as in consisting of just two sentences. Hence the name for this anthology.
Just like in the previous two seasons, each episode opens with giving you the first sentence of the horror story. Once the episode comes to its brutal conclusion, the final part (second sentence) is revealed.

The episodes of Two Sentence Horror Stories season 3
Just as was the case with season 2, especially, there is lots of diversity in terms of both the style, stories, and cast. It always feels very organic and not at all forced. Obviously, you’ll enjoy some more than others, but most of the episodes in season 3 actually have something I enjoyed.

If you look up Two Sentence Horror Stories on IMDb, this season is currently listed as season 4. That is incorrect and due to the fact that season 2 has been divided into two seasons on IMDb. This new season on Netflix is season 3 and it begins with the episode Crush. That episode is a damn strong opening!
We’ve watched the first four episodes for this review, so we’ve started out by giving ratings for each of those below.
Crush is episode 1
Plot of Crush: Living amongst their hoard of forgotten memories, elderly twin sisters Mabel and Jane are at each other’s throats until they find a common enemy.
Our rating: 4/5
From the opening scene of Crush, I knew I would love this episode. And I did. The story is simple and fits the whole “two sentence” concept perfectly. Also, Jacqueline Robbins and Joyce Robbins are perfect as the twins Mabel and Jane Laurent. They are as loving as they can turn brutal towards one another.
Bonus detail: This episode about twin sisters was directed by twin sisters. Kailey Spear and Sam Spear (or simply “The Spear Sisters” did an excellent job with this episode. I can’t wait to see what they do next. But I do hope it’s a genre production.
Plant Life is episode 2
Plot of Plant Life: A technology-addicted man receives a strange plant from his boyfriend, but soon experiences disturbing changes to his mind and body as the plant takes root in his apartment.
Our rating: 3/5
In season 2, the second episode featured a transgender student. In season 3, it features a gay couple. However, it isn’t actually about the two of them. Instead, is focuses on one of them. A man who is completely addicted to all things tech and is changed, when he comes into contact with a special plant.
The Plant Life episode features lots of cool practical effects that should please all old-school horror fans.
Toxic is episode 3
Plot of Toxic: A group of high school friends enjoy one last party in the “Woods of the Damned” until a prank goes horribly wrong.
Our rating: 3/5
This episode starts out feeling familiar and goes a little “mad”. I kept waiting for the punchline since it started out with a prank theme. However, the ending was actually rather weak, in my opinion. Still, the journey towards this ending was very solid.
Teatime is episode 4
Plot of Teatime: A babysitter’s latest gig takes a sinister turn when she discovers the controlling little girl has a collection of evil dolls.
Our rating: 4/5
I really liked this storyline and the casting was spot-on. If you like doll-based horror where the dolls get pretty damn freaky, then this should be a real treat for you. As of writing this, it’s the episode with the highest rating of season 3. It wasn’t my absolute favorite story, but I did enjoy the style and concept very much.

Vera Miao is (still) the creator of the Two Sentence Horror Stories series and I can see why more seasons are being made. This horror anthology just works. Also, I’m a sucker for a good short film of any genre, so it’s a win-win for me.
While the first two seasons sometimes interpreted the “sentences” far too loosely for my liking, season 3 is often more spot on.
This third season series premiered on the CW just like the previous seasons. Now, however, the entire season is out on Netflix in the US. Perfect to be enjoyed as a bite-size horror treat or simply binge-watched for maximum impact.
Two Sentence Horror Stories Season 3 is out on Netflix in the US on February 28, 2022.
Inspired by the viral fan fiction, ”Two Sentence Horror Stories” is an award-winning, original scripted horror anthology series. Each standalone story taps into the expansive world of the horror genre, pressing universal primal fears filtered through the anxieties of a connected and racially diverse generation.
