3.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER FREAK IN THE BASEMENT STORY 4 Oct 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
This is ANOTHER FREAK IN THE BASEMENT STORY with a twist. Tara is an outcast in her school. She is stalked, hit by a van and kidnapped. She is eventually placed in the basement and has to fight off the freak son. This is not how we want to remember Lori Petty. No bad language, sex, and very brief Polaroid nudity. Decent show, but not the best from Masters of Horror.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly surreal. 5 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase
Some good entries included in the MoH series. This one is superb. It contains a particularly well filmed dream sequence in black and white photography reminiscent of some of the old horror/suspense movies.
As the story unfolds it becomes clear what is going on and why, and the background behind the brutal events is very tragic, an incident leading to madness in the grieving couple who then ulitmately become responsible for the mayhem that ensues as a result of the loss they suffered. Shan't go into detail for fear of including spoilers, but if you like good horror movies then you shouldn't be too disappointed with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! 19 Jan 2007
By Madelyn Pryor - Published on
Wow is about all I can say, because this movie is so good it left me speechless. I watch LOTS of horror movies, read horror books, research hauntings, and even read horror comics. It takes a lot to impress me because 99 times out of 100, I've seen it before. The Fair Haired Child blew my socks off.

Not only is this movie artfully crafted and skillfully directed, the special effects are killer. Some scenes I immediately watched again, just to catch every second of the chilling graphics. The storyline is demented, twisted, and oh so evil. The acting also doesn't disappoint in the least (who doesn't love Lori Petty?) The monster of the film is grotesque and Lovecraftian. Everything here is perfection. Normally with a running time of just under an hour -in this case, 55 minutes- you might feel cheated. However, in this case, everything about the movie is so spot on you don't mind the short time. Besides, the short time means you can watch it again right away, which is what I did.

I can't recommend this movie enough. It is trite and childish to say this deserves 8 out of 5 stars, but it does. If you are a horror fan at all, please, treat yourself to a viewing of this film. You will NOT be disappointed.

Highest possible recommendations to all horror movie buffs!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Of The True Masters Could Take Lessons From This Relative Unknown 6 Dec 2006
By K. Harris - Published on
I'm not quite sure that "House on Haunted Hill" and "FeardotCom" qualified William Malone to be called a Master of Horror in the Showtime anthology series--but we'll have that debate later. Considering the uneven quality of many of the episodes, the real surprise is that Malone surpasses many of the more acclaimed directors. "The Fair-Haired Child" is definitely a solid, if not great, episode in the infuriatingly inconsistent "Masters of Horror." In fact, "Child" (considering his resume) might be Malone's most effective work yet.

The tale begins with the abduction of a young girl. Trapped by a couple, led by a gloriously deranged Lori Petty, she is locked in their basement with another child. Forming a tentative friendship with the mute boy, she eventually learns that they will be involved in some sort of ritual to bring the couple's deceased child back to life. Let's just say that they made a pact with the devil that involves child sacrifice and a rather unpleasant beastie.

The mood and atmosphere of "Child" are genuinely creepy, the performances good, and the effects are nice. The spooky ambiance and brisk pace distinguish this tale from some of the others. This certainly isn't a groundbreaking work, though. You've seen elements of this story in many other films. However, it is put together with confidence and competence. I enjoyed "The Fair-Haired Child," and would rate it at 3 1/2 star if possible. Not the best the show had to offer--but far, far, far from the worst. KGHarris, 12/06.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthy entry from a debatable "Master of Horror" 24 May 2007
By K. Ishak - Published on
Verified Purchase
This has turned out to be my favourite "Masters of Horror" episode. Compared to names like John Carpenter, Tobe Hooper and Dario Argento, I was all "who's William Malone?" He did "House on Haunted Hill"? "Feardotcom"? Bah! Neither impressed me. How can Malone be a "Master of Horror"? And then he wowed me with this episode. It's demented, gripping and I'm drawn in completely to this story. I loved its twisted happy ending!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so scary 19 Oct 2010
By Nicholas J. Sorensen - Published on
Verified Purchase
I guess I bought this movie because I thought the picture on the cover looked cool. I know..... "don't judge a book by it's cover" well, that certainly applies to this movie.
I'm always looking for a new horror flick that will scare the heck out of me and I can just keep looking. I guess the story line isn't too bad, but the acting......really,really bad ! The actors/actresses seem decent enough, maybe they were rushed through the scenes or something ??
There are some good parts, although they seem to have slipped my mind at the moment. Did I mention the bad acting? Actually, the young girl and boy(who were in the basement) did fine, well..OK. It was the mother and father that needed acting lessons, or maybe the director needed directing lessons(?) This really took away from the plot and any chance of it being scary.
