I actually enjoyed watching this movie. It was well-casted and TRULY ORIGINAL! The plot is a little sketchy and there are only a few scares worth noticing. It is more of a psychological thriller, based on our views of other people in the outside world. It shows that you can fall in love with someone without knowing who they really are. It also shows the unpredictabilty of the unknown.

I did enjoy watching this movie, but DON'T make the mistake of comparing any single Masters of Horror entry to another. They aren't pieces of a puzzle to be put together, they are all original.

If you're looking for a decent thriller with some good twists, I suggest picking this one up.

Mick Garris created the Showtime "Masters of Horror" series, so it is quite a surprise to discover that his first contribution to the show could not be properly called "horror" at all, let alone "masterful."

Mick has made a living out of adapting Stephen King novels for the screen (and we all know how those usually turn out), so it's no wonder that this little vignette plays like a short story with all the good parts cut out. Jamie (played by a mealy-mouthed Henry Thomas) is lonely, divorced, and living on old toast when he begins to experience all of the sensations of a beautiful Canadian woman. He smells what she smells, sees what she sees, feels what she feels. (In true "Masters of Horror" fashion, many of these shared sensations involve sex and nudity.) Ever more obsessed, Jamie tracks this woman down, only to discover her HORRIFYING SECRET!

What is her horrifying secret? I'll tell you!

[SPOILER ALERT]
She is not a very nice person. Also, for some reason, she keeps a gun under her couch. I'm not joking.
[END OF SPOILERS]

But seriously, this is just very, very bad entertainment. In fact, the most creative part of the entire show is little more than a lame inside joke. At one point, we catch a glimpse of a Stephen King novel, "Desperation," on Jamie's nightstand. Ho ho! Garris directed the TV adaptation of "Desperation," which just so happened to star both Thomas and Matt Frewer (who, in "Chocolate," has the only interesting character: Jamie's co-worker, Wally -- scientist-by-day, mohawked rock-n-roller by night).

The story of "Chocolate" is told in flashback by Jamie, who is sitting in a dark room, under a lamp, covered in blood.

I usually only write positive reviews for movies that I like. Normally I feel it is a waste of my time to write something negative but this time I would like to save anyone thinking of buying this a little money. If you MUST own all the Masters of Horror then buy this otherwise don't waste your time, it is an hour of your life that you will never get back. I am hard put to understand why the other MOH directors would even consider this poor offering from Mick Garris in the same league as the other stories if for no other reason that this "story" makes all the others seem that much better. It is poorly written (by Mr. Garris) and is overall incredibly empty. The only thing anyone watching this can be left to wonder at the end of the "movie" is WHY? Maybe the true horror here is in the idea that people will actually sit through an entire viewing of this garbage...now that is frightning!! This can't even be catagorized as so bad it's good. What a shame because there are other neglected directors out there that could have put forth a much better effort. The taste left in my mouth after viewing this was not that of chocolate...

Mick Garris created Masters of Horror, and since the horror anthology's inception, it has had it's share of good and bad. Garris himself, who also directed the TV adaptations of Stephen King's The Shining, The Stand, Desperation, and Riding the Bullet, makes his MOH directorial debut with Chocolate, and as a previous reviewer so excellently stated, the taste in your mouth that Chocolate leaves doesn't live up to it's namesake. Henry Thomas plays a man who begins to experience the sensations of a woman (Stacy Grant) in Canada, and he looks to track her down. What follows is much less an exercise in horror and instead pure boredom with zilch in the way of any thrills. Now I admire what Garris has done with Masters of Horror and many of the directors (John Carpenter, Don Coscarelli, Tobe Hooper, Joe Dante, John Landis, Lucky McKee, Larry Cohen, Takishi Miike, and more) he has enlisted, but as a screenwriter and director, he frequently fumbles. Chocolate is no different, and it is an ultimate failure on every level, and may very well be the worst episode of Masters of Horror to see the light of day. Avoid, no matter how much you love horror or the series.

I heard that Mick Garris is the creator of Masters of Horror. Then why not have a trully terrifying film presented to us. I am tired of watching movies that claim to be horror and are more of a suspense film. This would have been a perfect film for the "Twilight Zone", but not for "Masters of Horror". If you are expecting to be scared or are looking for something dark and dreary don't look here. I wouldn't want to waste your time expecting to see anything that resembles horror here. I have been disappointed so far by the "Masters of Horror" films. I was expecting more and was completly disappointed. If your going to claim to be a master of horror then please present us something that resembles horror at least. Look at the "GhostHouse Underground collection", or "8 films to die for collection". These films at least resemble horror films. Not all are great, but at least they are what they claim to be. Horror Movies.
