Jamie falls in love for the stranger woman, until he witnesses her stabbing and killing her lover. His connection ends and Jamie becomes obsessed for the woman; using his memories, he discloses through the driving license of her car and some landscapes that the mysterious woman lives in Vancouver.

strong series entry by the underrated Garris
28 May 2006 | by (Hellfudge, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I just submitted a comment for the "Masters of Horror" episode 'Incident on and Off a Mountain Road,' in which I claimed that the series' central problem was restricting filmmakers to 60-minute TV restraints. However, to rebut some of the negative comments on "Chocolate" (by the way, how on EARTH can you call Eli Roth a 'master' of ANYTHING?), I will also say that the series deserves a bit of leeway--in comparison to the directors' feature films, of course these TV episodes are going to come up short by default, and shouldn't be assessed with the criteria one attaches to a film. Thus far, I have found each entry (released to DVD) passable, stylish entertainment that carries the signature of each director. "Chocolate," from series creator Mick Garris, is no exception; at this point, it's the best entry I've seen, perhaps because Garris is more familiar with the parameters of television. His story follows a divorced, artificial-flavoring creator named Jamie (Henry Thomas), who begins to have visions of a mysterious femme fatale; the episode follows his quest to locate the woman, who has committed murder and might not be altogether right in the head. While the thriller aspect is strong (even inspiring some comparisons to 2005's 'remote viewing' tale, "Suspect Zero"), Garris brings romantic as well as darkly humorous elements to the mix. Even if the denouement leaves a bit to be desired, "Chocolate" is a strong entry nonetheless.
