not as great as the previous episode of the series, but still pretty good
6 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode of "The Hunger", the first of three based on the stories of Graham Masterton, Craig (Jason Scott Lee of "Dragon: the Bruce Lee Story" fame) is a young chef who desires to read the secret Shin Tan, a fabled and extremely rare cooking book, after an elderly recluse by the name of Hugo who holds the book in his possession leaves his card after a brief visit to his restaurant despite the very vocal objections of his uncle who knows what's really in the book. He finds himself at Hugo's manor where he agrees to cook for him in exchange for reading the obscure book. A task that he's very reluctant to do after reading the book.

This episode was a tad disappointing, watching it after the great 'Necros' episode that preceded it, but only a smidgen so thanks to how uniformly well-acted it is. The plot may be a tad generic and a bit too easy to see where the story is headed, but I had fun with this episode none the less.

Eye Candy: Gregoriane Minot Payeur shows T&A

My Grade: B-
