Decent Documentary on Horror Films
13 May 2003 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Masters of Horror originally aired on Showtime and being a fan of the genre i had to check it out.

It was hosted by Bruce Campbell so right there this was a must see.

Masters of Horror was pretty much the same thing as The America Nightmare which aired on IFC back in October of 2000.

Masters of Horror was good but not on the level of The American Nightmare.

John Carpenter, Wes Craven, David Cronenberg, Tobe Hooper, John Landis, George A. Romero, Guillermo Del Toro and Dario Argento appear in Masters of Horror talking about their films.

It was an ok Documentary but gave us nothing new.

The filmmakers pretty much say what they have said before in other Documentary's.

If you like horror films you will enjoy this on some level, but if you can find it see The American Nightmare instead it was far better.

I give Masters of Horror 6/10
