MASTERS OF HORROR: SERIES 1 VOL 1
On DVD

Cigarette Burns Film is magic. And in the right hands, it can be a weapon. For on-the-ropes movie programmer Kirby Sweetman (Norman Reedus of The Boondock Saints and Blade II), the holy grail of cinema is Le Fin Absolue du Monde, a legendary lost movie whose sole showing was rumoured to have driven its audience to a homicidal frenzy. But as Kirby gets closer to the truth about the film, he’s sucked into a private hell of grisly hallucinations and brutal acts of violence. Now the only surviving print of the film is within his grasp... and the most horrific screening of all is about to begin. Udo Kier (Suspiria, The Kingdom) co-stars in this gore-drenched mind-blower written by Drew McWeeny & Scott Swan, and directed by horror legend John Carpenter, the creator of The Thing, The Fog, Escape From New York, They Live and Halloween. Dreams In The Witch-House When stressed-out student Walter Gilman (Ezra Godden of Dagon) rents a room in a decrepit old house, his graduate thesis studies begin to take some very strange twists: He suffers nightmares about a voracious rat with a human face. He suspects that a gateway to another dimension may exist behind his wall. And he is seemingly seduced by a luscious she-demon who thirsts for souls of the innocent via a covenant that screams for blood. But when Walter must face the most depraved urge of all, will the line between madness, murder and unholy mayhem be crossed forever? Chelah Horsdal (Hollow Man 2) and Jay Brazeau (Insomnia, They) co-star in this disturbing shocker directed by Stuart Gordon, co-written by Gordon & Dennis Paoli (The Dentist, Castle Freak) and based on the infamous short story by horror master H.P. Lovecraft. Incident On And Off A Mountain Road “You’ve always got to expect the unexpected... and do the unexpected”. It’s the chilling advice a young woman (Bree Turner) thinks about late one night on a lonely stretch of mountain road. The warning, from her survivalist ex-husband, becomes all too real when a car accident leaves her alone, hurt and hunted by a backwoods maniac called “Moonface.” She’s learned how to live. She’s been trained how to kill. But when trapped in a monster’s killing ground, will she know how to survive the most horrific confrontation of all? Ethan Embry and Angus “The Tall Man” Scrimm co-star in this grisly shocker directed by Don Coscarelli and adapted from the short story by Joe R. Lansdale (Bubba Ho-tep) that The New York Daily News hails as “tantalizingly creepy and scary good!” Chocolate Jamie (Henry Thomas of Gangs Of New York) is a depressed young divorced man who creates artificial flavourings until the day his life is hijacked by a series of random sensory flashes. Psychically linked to an unknown beautiful woman, Jamie suddenly begins to experience all the pain, passion and forbidden pleasures of her existence. But when a murderous vision rips his obsession wide open, Jamie is driven to track down and confess his love to this mystery mate. Will psychosexual hunger lead to the girl of his dreams or does the ultimate horror await the lonely man who tastes someone else’s chocolate? Matt Frewer (Dawn Of The Dead) co-stars in this sexy and twisted shocker written and directed by MASTERS OF HORROR creator Mick Garris, the director of The Stand, Riding The Bullet and The Shining. Sick Girl Angela Bettis (May, The Toolbox Murders) stars as a shy entomologist whose drab life is changed by the simultaneous arrival of a large, mysterious bug and a torrid affair with a sexy young woman (Erin Brown, aka erotic scream queen Misty Mundae). But when the bizarre insect chooses a shocking place to secretly feed, Sapphic ecstasy turns to infection, mutation and murder. Will these lesbian lovers let a venomous threesome tear them apart, or is the most horrific metamorphosis of all yet to come? Co-written and directed by Lucky McKee, this babes ‘n’ bugs shocker features extreme monster mayhem by KNB EFX (Land Of The Dead, Hostel) in one of the most unique films of the series Fangoria calls “A smashing success…one the best anthology fright shows ever!” Deer Woman Detective Dwight Faraday (Brian Benben) is a burnt-out cop demoted to the ‘weird calls’ desk until a series of bizarre murders suddenly grabs his attention: Several men killed by massive blunt force trauma while in a state of sexual arousal, all last seen in the company of a sexy Native American woman (Cinthia Moura). But when it’s discovered that these corpses were trampled into hamburger by what appear to be hooves, Faraday must hunt a killer who may not be totally human. Will one cynical cop be caught like a deer in the headlights or has a horrifying seductress risen from legend to slaughter the horny? Anthony Griffith co-stars in this erotic horror comedy co-written and directed by John Landis (Animal House, The Blues Brothers) and featuring grisly gore effects by Gregory Nicotero & Howard Berger (Kill Bill, Land Of The Dead, Chronicles Of Narnia). Homecoming It’s a few weeks before the Presidential election and an unpopular war still rages overseas. But when the Republican administration wishes that our dead troops could return to tell America how proud they were to serve their country, veterans begin to rise from their flag-draped coffins for the most horrific reason of all: to vote. Are they gloriously resurrected heroes or brain-dead zombie dissidents? And even if the administration can devise the proper spin in time to steal their re-election, will an army of men and women killed for a lie finally show our nation the true face of hell? Jon Tenney (The Closer), Thea Gill (Queer As Folk) and Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager) star in this provocative stunner from director Joe Dante (Gremlins, The Howling, Piranha) that The Village Voice calls “jaw-dropping... easily one of the most important political films of the era!” Cigarette Burns • Audio Commentary with Director John Carpenter • Audio Commentary with Writers Drew McWeeny & Scott Swan • Behind The Scenes: The Making Of Cigarette Burns • Working With A Master: John Carpenter • Celluloid Apocalypse: An Interview with John Carpenter • On Set: An Interview with Norman Reedus • Script To Screen: Cigarette Burns • John Carpenter Biography • Trailers • Still Gallery • Visual Effects • Out-takes • DVDROM: Screenplay • DVDROM: Screen Saver
