Episode Summary

The Magister
Jessie Vasquez wants to be a Hollywood producer. Her weakness for trashy, obscure flicks brings her to the door of legendary horror film maker Kurt Kindel. His move from the relatively conventional to the increasingly strange was accompanied by a startling and unexplained improvement in the gruesome special effects on screen. However, Jessie is here for one film and one film alone - The Magister, infamous among horror movie geeks as the most terrifying film ever made. When it was first screened people died from outright fear when watching it. Paying out much of his fortune to cover up the truth, Kindel withdrew the film and ordered all the negatives to be destroyed. Jessie plans to use all her cunning wiles to convince him to complete it - thus making his big come-back and of course, her name. Behind Kindel's door, Jessie finds a crumbling, gloomy mansion. Kindel has clearly been cut off from the world for decades. In Jessie's company, however, he gradually becomes rehabilitated. He's very evasive about his work and is strangely particular about which doors Jessie can and can't go through. The house sometimes seems to have a character of its own - strange sounds, glimpses of things… Jessie believes she's in control, but is she truly aware of what she has unleashed?moreless
