The other half of the second series of the show that unites some of the horror genre's most respected filmmakers. Includes 'We All Scream For Ice Cream', 'Sound Like', 'The Washingtonians', 'The Damned Thing', 'Dream Cruise' and 'The V Word'. We All Scream For Ice Cream William Forsythe of The Devil's Rejects stars as Buster The Clown, a mentally challenged man who sells ice cream from his Cheery Tyme truck until a cruel prank by a bunch of neighbourhood boys goes horrifically wrong. A generation later they re all grown men with families, but the crime of their past may now be trolling for their children: Buster and his truck have returned for sweet revenge, and every frozen treat will bring its own taste of Hell. Sounds Like For call centre supervisor Larry Pearce (Chris Bauer of The Wire, Third Watch and 8MM), listening is a way of life. His days are spent monitoring hundreds of tech support phone conversations, his ultra-sensitive ears attuned to every nuance of voice and sound. But in the months following his young son s tragic death, Larry s hearing intensifies until it becomes virtually superhuman. Now simple noises around him have amplified into a cacophony of torment. And as Larry slowly begins to lose his grip on reality, he must take violent action to quiet the deafening clamor. In a world where nothing screams louder than the madness of grief, how far will one man go to find the ultimate paradise of absolute silence? The Washingtonians What if everything we believe about our sacred icons of American history turned out to be a complete lie? Johnathon Schaech (That Thing You Do!) and Saul Rubinek (Frasier) star in this gruesome tale about the discovery of a Revolutionary War artifact that proves George Washington s famed wooden teeth hungered for more than just liberty. How far will a group of homicidal historians now go to keep a hero s grisly legacy alive? Would our government deliberately hide the truth to cover-up the meat of the matter? A feast of answers complete with huge helpings of human carnage will all be served at the final banquet of The Washingtonians. The Damned Thing Twenty-four years ago, outside a small Texas town, young Kevin Reddle watched helplessly as his oilman father brutally slaughtered his mother before being torn apart by an invisible force. Today the county Sheriff, Kevin (Sean Patrick Flanery of The Boondock Saints) remains haunted by memories of that night and the fear that the damned thing may someday return. Now as the citizens of Cloverdale explode into a homicidal frenzy, the one man who has uncovered the truth is about to meet his own horrific destiny. Dream Cruise Daniel Gillies of Spider-Man 2 stars as an American attorney in Japan whose childhood trauma has left him with a crippling fear of the ocean. But when he begins a dangerous affair with the wife of a wealthy client, a sunset boat trip will reveal the violence and vengeance that waits just below the surface. How do you unleash the horrific ghosts of everyone s past? Just add water! The V Word For two geeky best friends who ve only experienced carnage via their video games, it s the ultimate late night dare: Ever seen a real dead guy? But when the pair breaks into a creepy local mortuary, they unleash a ferocious ghoul (Michael Ironside of Scanners and Starship Troopers) who s hungry to share a few depraved urges of his own. Even if these pals-for-life can resist a violent suburban blood-spree, is there any peer pressure more horrific than that of the undead? Jodelle Ferland of Silent Hill co-stars in this grisly twist on teenage vampirism written by series creator Mick Garris.

The final volume of the underrated Masters of Horror series, contains six episodes. As always there are plenty of extras to be had. So lets get down n' dirty and review each episode.

First up is We All Scream for Ice Cream. This seems to have received harsh treatment, but in all fairness this is a good episode. Not a classic but good enough. It is of course an IT rip off, but even so there is plenty to enjoy here. The clown is terrific and their is a memorable melting death scene.

Sounds Like is two stories rolled up into one. Involving the same character we go thorugh his harrowing ordeal of losing his son to an accident. But the man also has special hearing powers so even a fly walking on glass sounds loud to him. It's an enjoyable episode- with a killer climax.

Masters of Horror really liked to get underneath it's American viewers skins when it aired. There was Homecoming and Pro Life, but the Washingtonians probably took the biscuit. This fairly enjoybable episode accuses George Washington of being a cannibal- and that if the American public knew this all hell would break loose. There are some wonderful moments (the banquet scene) being the highlight. The end is a little off and silly for a horror show.

The two worst episodes on the set follow. Firstly Tobe Hoopers The Damned Thing. This episode doesn't really go anywhere- sure it starts off brilliantly well, but soon evaporates much like the town in the episode. In short the unexplainable is not explained at all. Not a good episode.

Dream Cruise is another that doesn't come off too well. Remember Twilight Zone season 4, where it just didn't feel like the Twilight Zone? Well this is what you have here. It feels very late 80s with a low budget- the acting is borderline awful.

Would have given it a two and a half as this selection of stories are really substandard compared to the first season. I am glad that they ended the series when they did as the source material that the directors was filming was not that masterful at all - quite bland really.

This is a great collection of tales but in my opinion it just falls short of the first volume of season two.
The first "We All Scream For Ice-Cream" (Tom Holland) is Ok as a tale of revenge from beyond the grave, and I did like the double twist at the end but it fell a little short.
The second is a real slow burner "Sounds Like" (Brad Anderson) this is a great tale of a man's descent into madness as his hearing becomes so acute the slightest noise drives him mad.
Next up "The Washingtonians" (Peter Medak) a nice example of US iconoclasm as one of America's most revered figures, George Washington, is found to have had a particularly gruesome secret. I love the reactions to the new image on the dollar bill at the end.
"The Damned Thing" by Tobe Hooper is an adaptation of an old Ambrose Bierce tale and it also works very well, I love the downbeat ending.
The weakest tale is "Dream Cruise" (Norio Tsuruta) which is a tale of revenge and redemption largely set at sea. The thing that did not work for me was the spectral image of the villain's wife. There are some nods to the Ring movies, Tsuruta directed Ringu 0 (the worst of that series), with the appearance of the ghost and some of the sound effects, fans will recognise them. It's not bad, it's just in comparison to some of the other tales here it does not fare well.
The closer "The V Word" (Ernest Dickerson) where two youngsters break into a funeral parlour and come across a vampire, played by cult favourite Michael Ironside. Well done Dickerson for some originality by reversing the roles and having the guy who would have been killed in most other movies survive.
The extras again are plentiful, there's commentaries, screenplays (on DVD-ROM) and documentaries, what more do you want?
The Masters of Horror series was a great idea, and in the main was a success with some truly great stories, many thanks to Mick Garris for this superb idea.

Final part of the Horror anthology series. Not quite as good as Series 1, or series 2 part 1, but still well worth watching, and a whole lot better than most US TV offerings. Sadly the series was cancelled after season 2, as was its sister show "Masters of Science Fiction" after just a few episodes. Unfortunately the viewing figures in the U.S dictate what stays and what goes, and theses shows didn't rate highly enough (too challenging for trailer folk perhaps??!!)
