First off, I haven't posted here in a while because I have a lot of homework right now.
Anyways, here's some news on Masters of Horror. First off, I saw the episode "Pick Me Up" last night. Not a very good episode. Some good acting, but that was it. Next week is "Haekel's Tale"
Speaking of "Haekel's Tale", it will be the season finale. Showtime has dropped Takashi Miike's episode "Imprint", sighting it too disturbing. Miike himself say's he's not suprised. The thing that gets me about this, is that Showtime was willing to let producer and series creator Mick Garris give Miike complete creative control of the episode, so of course it's not going to be appropriate for the network. Fortunately, the episode will come out on DVD later this year, as will other episodes. However, each episode will be released on one DVD each. So unfortunately, no boxed set yet.
Finally, here's an update on season 2. So far, Mick Garris, John Landis, Stuart Gordon, John Carpenter, Joe Dante, and Tobe Hooper have agreed to return as directors. Meanwhile, Brad ("Session 9", "The Machinist") Anderson has been tapped to direct an episode, and there is still possibility that Eli Roth, Rob Zombie, and Guillermo del Toro may direct. Also, Gordon is looking to direct an adaptation of Poe's "The Black Cat", and wants Jeffrey Combs to play Poe.
