Storyline

The virgin teenager Tara is outcast in school and neglected by her mother. While riding her bike back home from school, she is drugged, kidnapped and brought to an isolated mansion by the insane pianist Anton. His cellist wife Judith lures Tara to obtain personal information, and then they lock her in the basement where she meets their son Johnny trying to commit suicide. Tara discovers that the creepy couple lost their son drowned in a lake twelve years ago, and have made a pact with a demon to bring him back to life. The price would be the sacrifice of twelve teenagers, and Tara is the last one. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Malone explodes onto the screen as a true Master of Horror
28 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like everyone else, I was somewhat concerned about what this episode would be like. Malone's films have, in the past, been rocky. He has done some great stuff but there have also been some disappointments. There have been moments of brilliance and you can never be sure what restrictions have been put on a filmmaker by studios and producers. I guess we now know because I was really shocked at how good this episode is. After watching all the other episodes of Masters last season, this one is in a league of it's own. William Malone manages to pull off something of a magic act combining great scares, a wonderfully atmospheric mood and terrific performances and all on a small budget. I think it really shows what this guy can do when left to do his work. Why isn't this guy making huge movies? Wake up Hollywood!!!!
