Saw vol.1 of 1st season on DVD and enjoyed most of the stories. The line-up of directors includes just about everyone's favourites. Shame they can't get David Cronenberg interested in contributing to the series, though.

I think standout 'episodes' (from the 6-disc boxset) are John Carpenter's Cigarette Burns and Lucky McKee's Sick Girl. Deer Woman by John Landis was also good fun.

Any fans of this 'anthology' show here?

If you enjoyed SICK GIRL, you have to check out Lucky McKee's other movies - both MAY and THE WOODS are excellent. They also both feature Angela Bettis (who played Ida Teeter in SICK GIRL), although in THE WOODS she is just the voice of the wood.

Seen them both, Ian.
I like the atmosphere of disquiet and impending tragedy in McKee's films.
Angela Bettis is great, too!

So far I think the whole MoH series 1 (volume 1 & 2) has been top quality. The only disappointment, for me, has been the Clive Barker penned and John McNaughton (Henry: Portrait of A Serial Killer) directed Haeckel's Tale, which I was really looking forward to and which I felt was predicable and a little hackneyed.

I hope series 2 stands up as well - I've not caught any of them yet and will probably wait for the DVD release.

Oh, and yep, Angela Bettis rocks!

Finally managed to log in to the site and stumbled across an NPS strand - how wonderful. And even more so given it has a Masters of Horror strand, for which 2nd series Brad Anderson adapted my story 'Sounds Like' - originally published in 'Gathering the Bones' anthology, reprinted in my own collection, 'Unbecoming', (Elastic Press).

Bravo have shown all of series one and the first five or six episodes of series two here in the UK, including my one. Sadly, I didn't catch the broadcast, not knowing the date in advance. I did see the show while on holiday in the States over Christmas and thought Anderson did a pretty good job transposing the story from, erm, Swansea, to Seattle.

I'd be interested to hear if anyone else caught this episode and what they thought.

MY column, Night's Plutonian Shore will be returning in teh debut issue of Black Static

Did that include Takashi Miike's IMPRINT, I wonder?

Tony,

Yes, indeed it did, and a very gruesome piece it was too - right up there with Audition.

Hmmm, Takashi Miike and gruesome in the same sentence? Shurely shome mishtake. :wink:

Mike's 'Sounds Like', adapted by Brad Anderson, airs as part of series 2 on Ftn (Sky channel 153) at 10pm, Wednesday 5th September.

Not a Sky subscriber myself, but I have made arrangements!

Watched it last night and enjoyed it. I'd given up on MoH, to be honest, but wanted to watch this one because I'd actually spoken with the writer (MoT Day in London in 2000, discussing Cronenberg in the Bloomsbury pub) and I'm glad I did.
