Mick Garris, a Man Out of Step With His Peers, 29 November 2006
Author: gavin6942 from United States

A divorced young man begins to have visions from inside the body of a woman he has never met. After the intensity increases, the man decides to seek her out.

The name "Mick Garris" is not a household horror name, at least not for me. I know him as the director of Stephen King's "Sleepwalkers" and as the man running the show behind "Masters of Horror". What he has made that makes him someone to admire or remember, I have no idea. Maybe it will be "Chocolate".

Many have said this is one of the weaker films in the "Masters of Horror" series. Along with Tobe Hooper's "Dance of the Dead", it ranks as the least appreciated film of the first season. But the thing is, it's not a bad film at all. Just different. No serial killers, no slashers, no aliens, no zombies and no post-apocalyptic world. Just a man with visions and a woman he becomes obsessed with.

If you're looking for gore and guts, this is the wrong film. One scene has a little blood, but overall this is pretty tame. However, the other horror staple -- sex -- is here. Female masturbation, sex with multiple partners, one night stands. So, that's probably a good thing.

Also, I'm really glad Matt Frewer decided to show up. He's something of a horror icon, in my opinion (which is another thing "Masters of Horror" seems to be good at, plenty of cameos). And here he is playing a 45-year old lab technician by day (who looks more like 60) and punk rocker by night. Perfect casting choice, if you ask me.

I also want to comment on one key scene. I won't explain it to ruin it for those who haven't yet watched, but there is a part that is in some ways very much like the grotesque assault scene from "Strange Days", except now it is inverted and becomes incredibly erotic. I think it's safe to say the kind of sexual pleasure that takes place in this film you will never see in any other film again, which is almost too bad.

Keep an open mind on "Chocolate". It's not gory, it's not even scary... but the storytelling is decent and it's certainly one of the most unique tales in the "Masters of Horror" series.
