When I saw "Cigarette Burns" it felt as though I was watching a great horror feature film.
This was definitely the best "Masters of Horror" episode. Just when I thought John Carpenter had "lost his eye" for the genre. This one is a classic.
I was totally creep-ed out by this one. The story was very involving and Udo Kier was fantastic as usual.
Thanks to Showtime for keeping this series going. I hope that it continues on with new episodes later this year. They've done a great job in getting the best horror directors and writers for the series.
