Editorial Reviews

Detective Dwight Faraday (Brian Benben) is a burntout 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).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Native American Deerwoman In Seattle July 1, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have always loved John Landis. His contributions to the horror genre have been minimal, but just from those few films(American Werewolf specifically, though Innocent Blood was very cool and very underrated), Landis definitely earns the "Master Of Horror" title. Hell, he's pretty much a household name for horror fans based on the strength of Werewolf alone. It makes you wish he had made more horror films. Well, the Masters Of Horror series wisely chose him for one of their episodes, and we finally get another Landis horror offering. While most of the series' episodes tone down humor and go for the throat, Landis lightens things up a bit, and who could expect anything else from him? As for story, it's another human/beast theme, but this time digging into Native American mythology for it's monster. This is an odd, yet very cool concept. Basically it's a ghostlike woman from Native American folklore that's drop dead gorgeous, half deer, seductive and deadly. This mythical figure is put into the modern and logical thinking world where, realistically, her killings are investigated by police and forensic science. Landis has comedy is his veins, so the film is full of clever quips and oddball characters. It also manages some moments of suspense and has a bit of graphic gore thrown in to remind us that this is indeed a horror series. The featurettes are a real treat. Landis has always been an entertaining interviewee. Very energetic, funny, truthful and not afraid to swear. He seems like a helluva fun guy to hang out with. He's serious about what he does, yet never takes himself too seriously. His philosophy on horror and comedy and the mixing of the two is dead on. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best in the series December 23, 2006
Leave it to John Landis to help craft one of the best episodes in Showtime's Masters of Horror series. Landis, better known more for his comedies Animal House and Blues Brothers, as well as his horror classic An American Werewolf in London (and featuring a great in-joke as well), co-writes and directs this campy and gorey tale of a burned out detective (Dream On's Brian Benben) discovering a series of mutilated bodies that all expired during arousal and were apparently trampled to death. Soon enough, he and a patrolman (Anthony Griffith) are on the trail of a super sexy Native American woman (frequently topless newcomer Cinthia Moura) who is half deer. Featuring plenty of great humor and some grisly effects, Deer Woman is undoubtadly one of the most fun entries in the otherwise grim Masters of Horror. Keeping it's tongue firmly in cheek, Deer Woman illustrates much of what Landis has always done best: mixing thrills and laughs to a wonderful effect. All in all, if you're looking for a more light hearted, but nonetheless thrilling, entry in the Masters of Horror series, look no further.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Masters of Horror I've seen so far... June 30, 2006
After being disappointed by the "Masters of Horror" DVD's I have seen so far (I don't get Showtime), I was hoping that the episode by John Landis would deliver something a bit different. This movie was hysterical. Just the perfect length for a schlock horrow/comedy, solid acting all around and, incredibly, Landis is able to make you believe what you are seeing no matter how absurd, something which the other "masters" have not been able to make me do so far. It takes true skill to treat the ridiculous and absurd with straight forward seriousness and, like in his "American Werewolf in London", Landis pulls it off perfectly.

If you got to see one Masters of Horror episode, get this one. This is a real treat, especially for those who are fans of cheesy schlock horror, John Landis or anyone with just a good sense of humor.

It is hard to categorize John Landis' contribution to the Showtime horror anthology series, "The Masters of Horror". Landis made a name for himself in the horror genre as the director of the classic early 80's werewolf film, An American Werewolf In London, and the clut classic vampire-noir film, Innocent Blood. With his "Deer Woman" episode, John Landis reaches back to his past work and comes up with an episode that mixes horror, absurd situations and a healthy dose of black comedy.

"Deer Woman" has something in common with An American Werewolf In London in that this episode deals with a creature born out of folklore and myth. This time around its a creature from Native American folklore. The creature in question is the Deer Woman. A legendary creature who takes the form of a beautiful woman from the waist up and that of a deer from the waist down. The Deer Woman will then go on a spree of seducing random men then trampling them to mincemeat. In this respect she has abit of the mythical succubus mixed in with the shapeshifting. It is during the aftermath of one of her killings that we're introduced to the main player in this horrifically absurd little tale. Detective Faraday (masterfully played with a dry wit and comedic timing by Brian Benben) gets called in to the scene thinking it is an animal attack, but the crime scene leaves him confused, perplexed and a tad more than intrigued by the case after it's unceremoniously taken away from him. We learn through the lenght of the hour-long episode that Faraday is a disgraced cop due to an incident in the past that's made him a pariah in his own department. Faraday's sidekick in his hunt to solving the murders and thus finding the Deer Woman is a beat cop played by Anthony Griffin.
