They are obsessed by the dark. They share an obsession for terror. Now the anthology series that challenged the very limits of cable television delivers a second season of mind-altering fear from 13 visionary directors. Each episode is presented uncut, uncensored and loaded with the award-winning Bonus Features that carved an all-new standard in genre DVDs. They are 13 stunning discs from the foremost filmmakers of fright, entombed in a single Collectors Edition like no other. Feel the evil. Taste the dread. They are the Masters Of Horror.

1.0 out of 5 stars Masters of Rip-Off... Terrible Packaging! July 25, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I hardly ever write reviews, but I am writing in hopes that someone in power at Anchor Bay might read this. I have bought many, many Anchor Bay/Starz products over the years and have always been a big fan. But with Masters of Horror Season 2, a nearly $70 box set on Amazon, I feel completely ripped off.

Ok, unlike the other reviewers I have no asthetic gripes with this packaging. I always take the DVDs out of wierd packaging and put them in something that fits the shelf anyway. However, I received this set yesterday, and it just made me sad. The DVDs are floating around completely unprotected inside the "skull" which means every single one of them is scratched. A few of them are badly scratched all over, while ALL of them have circular scratches (typically the worst kind of scratches) around the the entire outer half-inch or so of the disc. Additionally, instead of including all of the individual episode discs like the last box set, some of the discs are double sided with an episode on each side! Why? So the manufacturer could cut some more corners on an already horribly put together set?

I foolishly assumed that, as with the season one set, this box would contain someting extra that was not available in the individual episode DVDs. It does not. So, if you have the individual episode DVDs, I would recommend sticking with those. However, if you don't mind spending way too much money for a pile of pre-scratched, dual-sided DVDs then this box set is the way to go. Not only do you not get anything extra, you get something far, far less for your money this time around. Shame on you Anchor Bay. I hope everyone returns these as I plan to do.

3.0 out of 5 stars Series - 4.5 stars, Pacaging 2 stars November 24, 2010
Format:DVD
Two things should be taken into account when you look at this. first is the season of Masters of Horror and secondly is the packaging. For the first part, the movies were a great thing. i know a lot of them had a cheesy little factor to them, but nothing like this has really ever been accomplish. That was why I found myself buying into it and buying into it with so much love. honestly, it is an amazing feat. Since this is the first part here, i will list the movies so there is something cataloging all the stuff here:

Episode #: 1
Title: "The Damned Thing"
Director: Tobe Hooper
Stars: Sean Patrick Flanery, Marisa Coughlan, Ted Raimi, Brendan Fletcher
Summary: A mysterious force sends a town into a murderous rage, and only the sheriff, whose parents were killed by the same force years ago, can stop it. Based on an Ambrose Bierce story.

Episode #: 2

Stars: George Wendt, Meredith Monroe, Matt Keeslar
Summary: A young couple moves into their idyllic suburban home, but their seemingly normal next door neighbor turns out to be a serial killer who takes a liking to the wife.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great series, cool packaging, worth it! August 28, 2008
By SAMIAM
Format:DVD
Regardless of previous gripes of packaging, the skull is pretty dam cool. Its a sturdy hard plastic, and as long as the discs are seated properly in the grooves, they are fine. This is probably the only DVD box set I would display, the skull also has some nice details and paint. I don't get some of the nick picky reviews on here anyway, people just find and look for things to complain about.

Anyway, this is the long awaited boxed set of the second season of Showtime's phenomenal horror series. Done in the style of Tales from the crypt, but with much better stories and less cheese. Some of the stories were downright gory and some had great horror style twists. A must own for any horror fan.

Just what qualifies someone to be called a "Master" in the horror genre? That's a question I've asked several times in the two seasons of Showtime's "Masters of Horror" anthology series. Looking at their slate of directors, there are some obvious choices--but disappointingly the undisputed "Masters" haven't necessarily turned in the best episodes of this show. Rob Schmidt is, perhaps, one of the more dubious choices to fulfill a "Masters" criteria--his most notorious horror work is the film "Wrong Turn." And while I'm sure that film has its admirers, it is ultimately just another of countless derivations of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" complete with young couples isolated in the woods being stalked by hillbilly murderers.

"Right to Die," however, is not a bad entry in the "Masters of Horror" series. In fact, it's rather solid with an unexpected and appreciated cleverness. Martin Donovan, an indie film stalwart whose deadpan delivery I have always admired, stars as the film's protagonist. Existing in a troubled marriage, Donovan's situation goes from bad to worse as a horrible car accident puts his wife in a coma. Covered in burns, unrecognizable, and not able to live without technological intervention--the episode wrestles with whether or not Donovan should humanely let her die. Oh but there's one complication, his wife's spirit is restless. Every time her heart fails, but before she is revived, her gruesome specter is on the move seeking retribution on those that have wronged her in life.

I particularly liked the juxtaposition of the traditional horror story with the "Right to Die" political debate. That's what makes this episode unique, and there is genuine humor that is mined from this topic. The horror sequences are effective enough--if somewhat familiar.
