The best documentary of horror films ever!
31 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

I've always felt that horror movies don't get the respect that they rightfully deserve. Often times horror movies are the most disrespected films with critics. The majority of critics find them to be cheap garbage. I completely disagree. I think that some of the best motion pictures ever made have been horror movies and the makers of MASTERS OF HORROR seem to think the same. For any horror fan, MASTERS OF HORROR is as close to perfect as a horror documentary can get. It examines the history of horror movies and the geniuses behind them. We learn the geneses of some of the best horror movies and get interviews with the directors (or the masters of horror) including Tobe Hooper, John Carpenter, Wes Craven, and John Landis. Each one of the directors share interesting stories and are quite enjoyable to listen to. Most of them are obviously very smart men and great filmmakers. The best part of the documentary is the fact that it is hosted by Bruce Campbell who is without a doubt one of the coolest actors that has ever lived. There couldn't have been a better host for the documentary. My only complaint about MASTERS OF HORROR is that for whatever reason, Guillermo del Toro is included as one of the masters of horror. I'm sure that Guillermo del Toro has his fans, but he is not by any stretch of the imagination a master of horror. He isn't even close to being in the same league as the other directors included here.

My rating: 9/10
