Volume II of Season One of Masters of Horror contains three of the best episodes: Jenifer, Sick Girl, and Deer Woman. All three make for extremely entertaining viewing, even more so in the Blu-ray format. The quandary these Blu-ray releases presents to the collector is that the extras included on the original DVD releases, with the exception of audio commentaries, are not included. Typically I would say go with the better picture and sound quality, because extras are generally not good for more than one viewing. In this case, however, there is a significant omission: Dario Argento's Jenifer was the only episode to have footage censored at some stage of the production process, and while it only amounts to a few seconds, that footage plus the other Argento extras do represent a significant loss, given his stature as a filmmaker. That said, the audio commentaries for Jenifer and Sick Girl are quite good; Deer Woman's commentary suffers from John Landis' absence. Argento enthusiasts may want to keep their original copy of Jenifer if they purchase disc, so, recommended with caution.

There were three really good tales in this one. It's probably the best one, although vol. 1 has the best movie on it, Cigarette Burns.

The first tale is Jenifer, directed by Dario Argento, hailed as the Italian Alfred Hitchcock. He's one of my favorite writer/directors. This story centers on a cop (Stephen Weber) who stumbles across a man about to take a hatchet to a woman. He winds up shooting the guy. It turns out the beautiful-bodied blond has a hideous face. She is, however, a VERY nice woman.Ultimately he winds up taking her to his house, where she promptly eats the cat. It all goes downhill from there.\

The second story is Sick Girl.I'll admit you have to have a taste for Lucky McKee/Angela Bettis quirky, weird humor/horror. Basically, you'll either love this one or hate it, depending on how your tastes run. Personally, I loved it. Bettis plays a meek and mousy lesbian entomologist who is looking for love, and finds it sitting on the bench where she works. At the same time, she receives a package in the mail, a bug specimen. She gets it inside an looks at it, but she's too busy with other stuff to pay immediate attention. Too bad for her...but it has a happy ending, so don't worry.{sardonic smile}

The final entry in this frightfest is Deer Woman. This time it's John Landis, another quirky horror director (maybe it was a mistake putting both of these on the same disc may have been a mistake. Anyway, this one has multiple deaths by deer, and a rough and grisled detective on the trail of the "deer woman", and strange half woman, half deer. Trust me it's better than it looks. Plus there's a reference to American Werewolf in London.

The first tale in the second volume of this horror anthology features a tale called, Jenifer, which represents a fine adaptation by Dario Argento of a tale from the graphic novel Creepy that makes you think twice before empathizing with disfigured individuals and revolves around the story of a cop who rescues a hideously mal deformed girl, Jenifer, from being butchered to death by her foster father, and, feeling sympathy for her, takes her in – much to the disgust of his family, and discovers himself becoming infatuated, with her, despite her hideously mal deformed features, after being seduced by her and protecting her from the law when she butchers his family, and seeking to start a life with her in the shelter of a shack, until she viciously murders a towns boy, bringing him to the realization that she was evil and had to be killed – only to find himself being shot to death in his attempt to kill her by a sympathetic cop who decides to take her in, thereby, starting the cycle again in what philosophers would call ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny.

The second tale in this volume, Sick Girl, is arguably one of the best episodes from the Master of Horror series, sold separately as a single movie by Amazon, with a well-acted drama revolving around a lesbian relationship but less than satisfactory special effects. Nonetheless gay rights advocates should love this one.

For those who just want to see the episodes, they look great. If you are expecting the extras that were on the individual DVD releases, you'll be disappointed. But the compilations on Blu Ray take up far less shelf space if that is an issue for you.

Bought this for one reason and one reason only. The "Deer Woman" episode, filmed around Vancouver, BC has Cinthia Moura in it. Every man's dream; every woman's nightmare!

I am so glad they made these into blurays!, i'm not going to go into too much detail, because so many already have. It's a great collection.
I liked Jenifer a lot, i think in the past few movies of Argento's he has been changing, i don't mean that in a bad way, i mean, his style, is still there but it's changing a lot. So it was nice to see Jenifer hold true to older Argento films. It's a pretty interesting story that does make you question a lot of things, i did like it's underlying message that was tangled in there. (i must point out i may have bias because i do love Dario Argento's work)

Sick Girl, i really could go on for days about my love of this one. I also love Lucky Mckee's films, so i may be a bit biased. It's a nice little "love story" with some horror mixed in, i do LOVE that in the commentary Lucky mentions that he was so happy to be working with masters of horror that he tried to include all of the masters of horror directors names in some parts of it. I will admit i wish they spent more time with bettis and misty, i do wish this was a full full length movie instead of a made for tv series one, but i'm not sure it would have gotten made otherwise.

Deer Woman. Sigh. It's a comedy/horror/spoof. My least favorite types of movies, and oh! John Landis let his son write this... so we can get the whole clear "John Landis is my father" vibes from this (that's good! that's what redeems it, a bit). It's really a terrible movie, but it's 100% watchable, because it is so bad. I do tell people about this a lot, because whenever a person in a movie or on a tv show does the head mashup with a pair of antlers behind them i gasp out "DEER WOMAN!" . It's not good, it's terrible, but i almost like it. almost.

I'm giving this bluray a 5 star, because despite not having the bonus content of all of the dvds, the picture and quality make up for it.
