Masters Of Horror: Volume 2 Review

Six more hour-long cable TV horrors from big-in-a-small-pond directors — mostly short-story ideas padded with nudity, rubbery gore, and Canadian non-entity supporting actors backing pro hams. The picks this time out are Larry Cohen’s Pick Me Up, about feuding serial killers arguing about who gets to kill Fairuza Balk, and (surprisingly) William Malone’s The Fair-Haired Child, with a genuinely disturbing demon baby.

The most extreme splatter comes in the deleted scenes of Dario Argento’s Jenifer and (predictably) the mid-section of Takashi Miike’s Imprint.
