Fear Itself: The Sacrifice (2008)

** (out of 4)

When Showtime's Masters of Horrors series got canceled, the men behind it took the series to NBC and renamed it but all in all this series plans on doing the same type stories. This first film has four criminals making a getaway when their truck breaks down and they are forced to take shelter inside a creepy village that is behind wooden walls. Soon the four men are seduced by three sisters but soon the men will learn that the women trap men so that they can feed them to a vampire. I was really disappointed in this first episode because it really doesn't try to do anything new with a very familiar subject. Since this is on network television instead of cable, there isn't too much gore and there's no nudity (unlike the Showtime series) but I thought this could have been great since it would force the directors to go for some atmosphere over cheap gore. That doesn't happen here but to be fair to the director, the screenplay is the biggest problem. The cast is better than average and there are a few nice scenes but in the end we've simply seen this type of thing way too many times.
