3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best entry, not the worst.... May 24, 2006
By xx
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tastes Like Something Brown But Not Chocolate June 23, 2006
Format:DVD
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...

1.0 out of 5 stars I was scared that I spent 12 dollars on it. May 16, 2006
Format:DVD
I normally never write reviews, but in this case I've decided to make an exception. This is hands down the worst episode so far in the disappointing Masters of Horror series. There are so many things bad about this film Garris would have to be either stupid or just jaded to think that there is anything redeeming about this film. The casting is horrible, the acting worse, and the story is overdone to the point that its laughable. What is usually my favorite part of the Dvds, the interview with the directors, really gives insight on what a complete rube that Garris is. Master of Horror? Hardly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother with this dvd October 18, 2006
By Drew
Format:DVD
Hands down the worst episode of the Masters Of Horror television show. It's dull, boring, and not scary. It will leave you scratching your head saying "that's all?"

Don't even bother with this dvd. It's a waste of your precious time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the worst episode of Masters of Horror November 7, 2007
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fudge This March 30, 2007
Format:DVD
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.
