Fair Haired Child (Masters of Horror)

Anyways, I saw the Master of Horror Episode "Fair Haired Child" last night. Other than one disappointment, it's pretty good. It's not the best episode, but it ties with Argento's episode ("Jennifer") as the creepiest. The whole thing has a great atmosphere, and it's probably the best thing that William Malone has directed yet. Plus, the acting was good, and the score was top notch. The only real flaw IMO, is the Fair Haired Child itself. The episode does such a good job at building this mounting dread about the creature, but when we finally see it, it's just not that great. It looks too much like the title character in the Aphex Twin video "Rubber Johnny" to be scary. Other than that, it's a good episode, and probably the most atmospheric episode of the series so far.


The next episode is called "Sick Girl", and is directed by Lucky ("May") McKee. Remember folks, it's on Friday at 10 on Showtime.
