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

Trivia

Part of the story takes place in the "River Rock Casino Resort". In many shows like "CSI", a named Casino is usually a fictitious one. But this is a real Casino - the River Rock Casino Resort, in Richmond Canada. What confuses some viewers is that there is another Casino named "River Rock Casino Resort" in Geyserville, California, U.S.A. See more »

Fun-filled tale of terror from John Landis
6 November 2006 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"Deer Girl" is a terrific episode of "Masters of Horror". John Landis' episode is light-hearted but contains some moments of true suspense.

I was genuinely thrilled to see Brian Benben in the main role of Dwight Faraday. Benben was previously in the John Landis produced "Dream On" series and is a great actor - he's able to convey subtle humour in a very capable manner.

The tale itself is pretty straightforward and proceedings move at quite a pace. I had a great time watching the episode and was sad when it finished - I could have sat through another 30 minutes of this story.

Incidentally, John Landis was uncomfortable with the reference to his earlier "American Werewolf" movie but the in-joke works well and isn't out-of-place.

Newcomer Cinthia Moura is stunning as the title character, the Deer Woman. To say Cinthia is beautiful would be something of an understatement and the scenes with this actress were a joy to watch.

Finally, I really hope Landis uses Benben again in a future project - they make a great team.
