Storyline

When the body of a truck driver is found trampled in his truck, the burnt-out detective Dwight Faraday is assigned for the bizarre case. He arrives to the crime scene in a parking area with Officer Jacob Reed and their investigation discloses that the victim had left a tavern with a gorgeous woman and apparently had been trampled by a heavy animal in the truck cabin. Later, two other bodies of men arrive in the morgue in the same conditions, and the coroner Dana notes that all of them had erection in the moment of death, and Dwight notes hooves in the body. Dana investigates further and finds deer footprints and hair in the corpses. When Dwight and Reed talks to an Indian descendent in a casino, they unravel a Pohancan legend about a deer woman, half woman but having deer hooves and trampling men after seducing them. Without any other lead, they begin to believe that every legend is based on facts. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

Near the end of the episode when Detective Faraday leaves Officer Reed's apartment, he gets into his car which has the red light on top still flashing (as he left it when he arrived). As he enters the car, the red light appears to turn off, only to be back on in the next shot. Minutes later in the woods, Deer Woman kicks his car, which causes the light to fall off the roof and fall to the side while still flashing. Presumably it fell off the car and is lying in the road as we never see it on top of the car or see the red flashing light ever again. However, as Detective Faraday pins Deer Woman to a tree using the car, we can see the reflection of the red flashing light in the windshield on a close-up of Detective Faraday. In the very next show we can still see that the light is not on the car. See more »

Landis' sense of humor is 'Deer Woman''s secret weapon
28 June 2006 | by (Hellfudge, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

Of the "Masters of Horror" episodes released on DVD thus far, John Landis' 'Deer Woman' is by far the best (putting the incredibly overrated 'Cigarette Burns' to shame), and not due to the scare factor (of which there is next to none). No, 'Deer Woman' succeeds because of its relentless--often knee-slapping--brand of smart-ass humor. As this is an element that has been lacking in the episodes previously released to DVD, Landis infuses this ridiculous tale (about a Native American woman who transforms into the murderous title creature after seducing hapless males) with all the jokes and jabs it can contain without bursting under the pressure. The very funny Brian Benben plays a disgraced cop now taking calls for 'animal accidents,' when several corpses stomped into hamburger cross his radar; all leads wind up dead ends (and are encapsulated in a side-splitting 'what if?'-montage), until an Indian casino employee unspools the myth of the Deer Woman. Like I said before--anyone looking for horror (in spite of a decent ration of gore) will be disappointed; those seeking a fast-paced comic romp with mild horror overtones will be ecstatic.
