Masters Of Horror Season 2 Volume 2

2

Masters Of Horror? Masters Of Schlock more like. Boxset number two from the second season of this frightfest takes a quality nosedive with a collection of soft scares involving psycho clowns, vampires, J-horror ghosties and every other stock genre convention you can chuck a severed limb at. Not many big-name directors this time around, but there’s an abundance of lacklustre scripts. Still, worth a look is Peter Medak’s ‘The Washingtonians’, which milks lightweight political allegory from the idea that George Washington was head of a secret sect of cannibal killers. Equally silly is Tom Holland’s ‘We All Scream For Ice-Cream’, about Buster the killer ice-cream man (cue a messy death by melting). At best, this is little more than a lobotomised version of The Twilight Zone with added gore…
