Product Description

Showtime has amassed some of the greatest horror film writers and directors to bring to you the anthology series, "Masters of Horror." For the first time the foremost names in the horror film genre have joined forces for the series consisting of 13 one-hour films each season.

Amazon.com

Made for Showtime, the Masters of Horror series features films by renowned horror film directors, such as Homecoming by Joe Dante (The Howling, Gremlins). This satire about Bush's War On Terrorism is a one-liner, in which soldiers killed in Iraq rise from the dead to vote the president out of office as their last effort to end the war. Zombies fight for peace as the politicians concoct deadly schemes in this comedic film about the idiocy of our current government. Political consultants Jane Cleaver (Thea Gill) and David Murch (Jon Tenney) meet during a talk show panel, then watch in horror as the news begins to air footage of soldier zombies wandering the streets towards their local voting booths. Top political officials, unable to slay the undead, discover that the zombies die on their own after dropping their voting cards into the boxes. Zombies spark a small revolution by denouncing WMDs on television, urging citizens to follow suit. Though weak compared to Romero's great sarcastic zombie film, Dawn of the Dead, Homecoming features enough body parts squirting green blood to entertain. Over-the-top humor throughout recalls Re-Animator, yet the political message goes deeper. Dante's warped rendition of America’s recent history seems more relevant than ever. --Trinie Dalton

Joe Dante's Homecoming written by Sam Hamm is a courageous and entertaining horror film about the lunatic and plain stupid war in Iraq. And it's funny too! Fine acting, especially by the blonde actress who plays an Anne Coulter type. She's vicious, sexy and funny in a grotesque way. I found it powerful and moving and the attacks the show has received tend to be from those Bush supporters who unquestionally follow the lying thief's word. Even if you disagree with the show's politics, it's still an entertaining and good horror movie.

...even though I am a Bush supporter, I also happen to dig Dale Bailey's fiction (this is based on his short story). This episode was hilarious! The Ann Coulter and Cheney impersonations were fun.

This is obviously tongue-in-cheek and I completely disagree with the antiwar message, but still, it was fun to watch. That is one of the many beauties of this great country-- the freedom to make films that trash people who don't agree with you.

Dante is no George A Romero, but managed to direct a "subversive" film that is original, but totally lacks suspense. This is a dark comedy, and anyone who thinks this film will persuade people to be anti-GOP, is an idiot. You will come out of this with the same political views you had before (but will never see Ann Coulter in the same light-- bless her soul).

Overall, a fun show.

I really liked the masters of horror. I saw most of them, and even when they didn't knock my socks off I still found them more or less entertaining...except for this one. This episode is a political message being disguised as a horror movie. A Republican spokesman says that if the soldiers who have died in this controversial war could come back they would be in total support. Well, this causes the dead soldiers to actually come to life back and become anti-war protesters. The message isn't subtle: Republicans are evil, and so is George W. Bush. Now I don't care if you agree with that message or not, but the way that this episode goes about dealing it out is insulting. The characters are flat and lifeless: the Republicans are boiled down to people who are liars, opportunistic, and for some reason are into S&M. While at the same time the Democrats are wise, rationale, and any other positive word you can think to use. If you want to get people to think about important issues like this then it must be done more even handed, using the reasonable arguments from each side of the issue. This one doesn't do that. It takes the closed-minded approach of "I'm right, you're wrong and that's it", and I for one found it completely insulting.

The only thing frightening about this little steaming pile is that Showtime greenlighted it.Why Dante just didn't come out in zombie makeup and rant and rave about his ignorant view of politics and the war is beyond me.

I suppose that since his films have been poor for many years,he thought he'd Dixie Chick his work with false and manipulating propagandic messages.(Boy,hasn't that worked out for them too.)Perhaps he felt this would get some attention off his obvious lack of directorial skills,and get people to laud his courage to speak out(gee,like every thirty minutes you don't here a hollywood gasbag go off)

I will give it one star for the unintentional laugh of having the dead vote democratic,but that is the only way they win anymore.
