Mediocre MoH episode
3 February 2009 | by Witchfinder-General-666See all my reviews

The ninth episode in the second season of "Masters Of Horror", Rob Schmidt's "Right To Die" is a mediocre entry to the generally great series. I have become quite a fan of "Masters Of Horror", but it has to be said that the episodes differ immensely in quality and scariness. While some episodes such as Takashi Miike's "Imprint", the two episodes by master Dario Argento, or John Carpenter's "Cigarette Burns" are absolutely great, some others such as "The V-Word" or "We All Scream For Ice Cream" sucked big time in my opinion. "Right To Die" is one of several episodes that are neither very good nor very bad. The episode is exceptionally morbid and it bears enough creepiness and originality, and yet it does not really get scary, simply because none of the characters is even only slightly likable. As some other MoH episodes, "Right to Die" has a somewhat political theme, namely the euthanasia debate. A dentist (Martin Donovan) decides to pull the plug on his wife (Julia Anderson), who is comatose and disfigured after an accident. He has to figure out, however, that her vengeful spirit is on the loose... The performances are neither very good nor very bad, but one has to say that Julia Anderson and Robin Sydney make a very hot female cast (hot female cast members are a quality of almost all MoH episodes). The episode is decently shot, there is some very creepy imagery and some scenes are extremely morbid. I couldn't say that I disliked the episode, and yet it sure didn't blow me away either. The characters are unlikable, which makes it quite hard to be scared for them. Still some scenes are creepy enough, and overall the episode is worth the time for fans of the series.
