The Damned Thing is the apocalyptic tale of a monstrous force that devastates Sheriff Kevin Reddle's family and his small Texas town. Sheriff Reddle thinks there is a connection between this mysterious, invisible force which made his father kill his mother back in 1981, and he sets out to uncover and stop the so-called "Damned Thing" before it decimates his whole town by forcing the residents to kill each other and themselves.

The Damned Thing
31 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Damned Thing is probably the third or fourth best Masters of Horror episode. Last seasons "Cigarette Burns" still holds the top spot out of the 14 episodes. The Damned Thing was very well made, and featured an excellent performance by Sean Patrick Flanery, but it was Ted Raimi who stoled the show. This episode also has a very disturbing and chilling scene, that was more brutal than anything in last seasons shows. The ending was a bit off, and is likely to divide viewers. This show has plenty of gore, weirdness and intensity to hold your attention for an hour. Any fan of Tobe Hooper, the director, will be very pleased with the results. This is Hooper at his "Poltergeist" best.
