    could you rank the entire first season?

    my list would be

    my list:

    13: Dance Of The Dead - 0.5/10
    12: Jenifer - 3.5/10
    11: Haecle's Tale - 3.5/10
    10: Chocolate - 4.0/10
    9: Incident On And Off A Mountain Road - 6.5/10
    8: Pick Me Up - 6.5/10
    7: Homecoming - 6.5/10
    6: Dreams In The Witch House - 7.5/10
    5: Deer Woman - 8.5/10
    4: The Fair-Haired Child - 8.5/10
    3: Sick Girl - 9.0/10
    2: Imprint - 9.5/10
    1: Cigarette Burns - 10/10

    despite some horrible episodes, I liked it. 'Cigarette Burns' was beyond perfection and really made the season worth watching.

    Season 1: 7.5/10

    I haven't seen season 2 yet, hopefully it'll get better.

    I've only seen the first 3, I loved Incident on and Off A Mountain Road, Dreams in A Witchhouse was also really good.

    I hated Dance of the Dead, it was horrible, even Robert Englund couldn't make up for the terribleness. I need to watch the rest soon.

    I was really looking forward to seeing this show. I love well done horror... george romero, HP Lovecraft's stories... i even thought burlesconi's phantasm 1 was decent...

    Masters of Horror was a HUGE disappointment!

    HP Lovecraft must be rolling in his grave considering how they butchered 'dreams in the witch house.' The best part of that whole episode was the house itself... which is a pretty sad reflection of the idiocy of the writers. It's sad that Lovecraft's stories always seem to wind up being translated into film by a bunch of hacks who always fukk it up horribly (and that's not a good "horribly.").



    Where did they recruit the writers for the screenplays for this show? The first grade? I should bite my tongue, saying that is a huge insult to first graders, i'm sure that most of them could do a better job writing screenplays than the writers who wrote the screenplays for Masters of Horror. Avoid this series like the plague!!!

    have any of you guys ever actually read any hp lovecraft?  if you think
    MoH is good, then i'm thinking that you haven't.  seriously, go read
    'dreams in the witch house,' or 'the shadow over innsmouth,' or
    'pickman's model,' or 'cool air' (those are a few good ones, there are
    many more).  once you have something awesome to compare against, you'll
    understand why MoH is such poorly done garbage



    p.s.- i just watched 'cigarette burns,' because people rated it as the
    best episode, and in all fairness i thought i'd give MoH another
    chance.  i have to say that the plot and the screenplay were better
    than the other episodes that i've seen, which made it watchable but not
    anything to write home about (which isn't saying that much).  the
    casting was pretty bad i think... the main character can't be taken
    seriously in this role with his west coast surfer accent, the french
    guy sounds like fukking pepe le peau with his fake sounding over
    exaggerated accent...  if you want to see this type of story, but well
    done, go rent 'the ninth gate,' and throw MoH in the dumpster.

    or check out the old tv series from the 80's 'tales from the darkside,' or its successor tv series 'monsters,' or even the ultimate classic series 'the twilight zone,' all of these excellent series put MoH to shame.

    "Incident" is probably my all time favorite.
