Trivia

This was the only Season 1 episode to require cuts. 2 shots were removed from the final film, both involved graphic depictions of oral sex. The first one occurred during the sex scene in the car, and the second occurred at the end of the film. The deleted scenes are edited into the 'So Hideous My Love' documentary on the DVD. See more »

Not half as good as the comic.
28 September 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Jenifer was one of the most twisted little stories I got to enjoy growing up. It was written by Bruce Jones and illustrated by Bernie Wrightson. I think not Argento or Carpenter but Bernie Wrightson and Richard Corben are the real masters of horror.

At first I was nicely surprised by Weber who looks very much like the comic-book character and so does Jenifer. The gore also looks true to the comic. The make-up effects are very good. But that's not enough to make it good, even for a TV episode, anyway not for this Bernie Wrightson fan. What starts out promising quickly turned average and boring. The comic had a much more desolate atmosphere and almost totally depended on the two main characters. The extra characters Argento came up with to fill up this episode of masters of horror were too predictable. Uninteresting clichés without depth, and to me Argento didn't do enough to make the awesome drawings of Bernie Wrightson or the creepy atmosphere of Bruce Jones little story come to live in the way that it deserves. I have to see a real good adoption yet of the old Wrightson styled black and white horror comics. To me they stand by themselves and miles above mediocre, mainstream television productions such as this that are directed by people who had their peaks in cinema over twenty years ago and are now still merely making money of the horror genre without coming up with any good new ideas anymore. Yesterdays rebels are indeed todays sellouts. I'd advice people to read the old short Wrightson comics from the early seventies any time over this. They are worth it. Try reading Jenifer before you watch this. Or better : Just read the comic and skip this.
