I was hoping Masters of Horror II would have tons of film clips and some deep insights into the genre of horror. Unfortunately it comes across more like an episode of Entertainment Tonight or Hollywood Access. John Carpenter never seems to say anything interesting about his movies, and Bruce Campbell is not just over-rated but boring and dull too. He always seems to act as if he is doing somebody a favor by being there. I guess that is his style. The best interviews were by Guillermo Del Toro, Wes Craven, and Robert Englund. They seemed to have actually thought about what they were going to say.
I would have preferred more film clips of the best scenes of great horror movies and some discussions with directors regarding why those greatest scenes were so effective. I guess that would have seemed too much like work to John Carpenter. If you have never seen any of these directors interviewed before, then this documentary is very good. If you have seen them interviewed on TV or in magazines before, then this documentary provides very little that is new or insightful. It looks like something put together quickly to promote horror movies in general. It is not bad, but it does not really show why they are the "Masters of Horror."
