Storyline

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 Matt Patay

Argento does it again; another excellent MOH episode
16 November 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I loved Jenifer, it was an eerie, sexual, bloody affair that was one of the best of the first season. Dario Argento (Suspiria, Opera, Deep Red, Tenebrae) makes another brilliant entry into the series. Packed with vicious gore, lesbians, a bunch of great actors and an incredibly eerie score Pelts is my favourite of the second season.

Jake (Meat Loaf) is a sleazy fur trader who is desperate to succeed. He meets a stripper, Shana (Ellen Ewusie), who he desperately wants. He promises her the coat of her dreams, and fame as well. Unfortunately he the pelts he obtains (from farmer John Saxon) are cursed and what follows is a trail of death and revenge.

This episode proves that Dario Argento is probably THE Master of Horror. He consistently makes provocative, in-your-face and horrifying movies and MOH episodes. The gore in this comes in bucket-loads and is always graphic and disgusting, the acting is quite good from all (especially Saxon) and the story moves along quite well. While watching this I sensed an underlying message about animals used for fur and if that is what he was going for he definitely achieved it.

If there is a third season I hope they ask Argento back to horrify us once again!

5/5
