I on the other hand thought Chocolate was a nice spin in the horror genre. Grant it, compared to what most people call a "horror movie" this was not in your face slashing or straight up gore, instead we have a story that dwells deeper into an individual tale about one's own fear and wants in life.

The acting compared to most horror movies was very good - don't know how the other post said bad acting, I saw something completely different. The cinematography on this movie was excellent! Being a cinematography major I thought that with this additive it helped the story flow better and wrap the viewer into what is on the screen.

Those wanting a good scare, will not find it in this movie - but does that mean it is not a horror movie? No! This movie is a horror movie just like the others selected for Masters of Horror, not all horror movies have to have a ton of blood and guts to have that title.

The thought of having your vision taken away at any moment and seeing through someone's else's eyes especially w/ what happens when the visions stop - who wouldn't be freaked out by seeing that. The way it was conveyed on screen leads you into the character more and for that I give thumbs up to Mr. Garris for providing a new twist and a story that really reels you in.

I hate when people are saying this series is not scary or not worth it - we are not going to see the "best" horror movies ever made folks, just not going to happen w/ the budget and time line for shooting. But instead we get a great array of individual films by these directors to tell a tale how they so choose to tell it, without all the studio execs saying don't do this or do that. That to me is worth it and that is why I have loved watching this series so far.

Looking forward to more from this season and the next.

Nice work Mr. Garris!
