4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best episodes of the series, September 26, 2008
This review is from: Masters of Horror - John Mcnaughton - Haeckel's Tale (DVD)
Based on a Clive Barker story and originally slated to be directed by George Romero, Haeckel's Tale ended up being helmed by Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer director John McNaughton, and you may not even know the difference upon viewing. Haeckel's Tale revolves around a nineteenth century medical student (Derek Cecil) who aims to learn a way of re-animating the dead before embarking on a trip to visit his terminally ill father. His journey leads him to encounter a necromancer (Jon Polito) and a couple (Tom McBeath and the gorgeous Leela Savasta); all of whom share a horrible secret that you will have to see to believe. Haeckel's Tale is a nasty, sexy, and bloody affair to be sure, and combined with the hammy performances and dynamite ending, ranks as one of the best episodes of Masters of Horror. All in all, Haeckel's Tale is an inventive treat that definitely deserves a look if you're a zombie fan, even if Masters of Horror isn't usually your thing.
