After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, escapes from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.
Sleazy fur trader Jake Feldman will do anything for quality skin. When Jake crosses paths with fur trapper Jameson offering raccoon pelts caught at the sight of an ancient burial place, Jake jumps at the chance to cash in by stealing them in order to win the heart of a stripper named Shanna. But little does Jake know is that the raccoon pelts are cursed and will bring bloody revenge against anyone who touches them. Written by
This is one of the best MoH episodes I have seen. The acting is well done, and Meat Loaf (yes that Meat Loaf) does an outstanding job surprisingly enough.
The story is a bit thought provoking, focusing around the greed of people, but really that is a slight backdrop for what is much more of an erotic and gore filled movie. Essentially it goes like this; Two guys trap some raccoons in an old cursed witchy type of cemetery. But the raccoons are not quite that normal, and their pelts charm people, making them lust with greed, and eventually kill others or themselves, through self mutilation.
That basically sums it up. This is a great choice for good solid gore. Not the cheesy simple gore, but real, stomach clenching type of gore that makes you want to divert your eyes. More than once I had that tingle run up my spine as I realized what was about to come.
It's rare to find a movie that pulls together all three; good acting, fair story, and good gore, but this one does it masterfully. And it all leads up to an insane climax that is just, well, disgusting and fun at the same time. Definitely worth picking up the DVD if you can.
