The price would be the sacrifice of twelve teenagers, and Tara is the last one. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Malone explodes onto the screen as a true Master of Horror
28 August 2006 | by Slowly_I_TurnedSee all my reviews

Like everyone else, I was somewhat concerned about what this episode would be like. Malone's films have, in the past, been rocky. He has done some great stuff but there have also been some disappointments. There have been moments of brilliance and you can never be sure what restrictions have been put on a filmmaker by studios and producers. I guess we now know because I was really shocked at how good this episode is. After watching all the other episodes of Masters last season, this one is in a league of it's own. William Malone manages to pull off something of a magic act combining great scares, a wonderfully atmospheric mood and terrific performances and all on a small budget. I think it really shows what this guy can do when left to do his work. Why isn't this guy making huge movies? Wake up Hollywood!!!!
