Masters of Horror: Season 1 (2005 - 2006)



Critic Consensus: Masters of Horror is a skin-crawling anthology series with a higher quotient of hits than misses, although some viewers may feel that these splatter-filled installments are not as ambitious as the series' title promises.

Critic Reviews for Masters of Horror Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

Featured at least as many misses as hits, films that delivered slap-dash gore rather than anything truly disturbing.

Dec 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Takes the common tropes and clichés of a horror movie and turns them around without feeling like a parody.

Dec 7, 2018 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…

The hoped-for resurrection of in-your-face frights is still a couple of corpses away.

Dec 7, 2018 | Full Review…

A wonderfully gruesome nightmare.

Dec 7, 2018 | Full Review…

It's difficult to choose only one episode of this underrated Showtime anthology series... When all else fails, though, it's worth trusting the true master of horror, John Carpenter.

Dec 7, 2018 | Full Review…

It's been a mixed bag, but this Friday the series unveils a real doozy: Joe Dante's wry and uncompromising zombie satire "Homecoming."

Dec 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Talented filmmakers working on material from genre aficionados, yielding uneven results... If the final product wasn't always the galvanizing return to form we'd hoped for, at least it keeps these directors in the game.

Dec 7, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

For aficionados of the horror genre, it's the kind of stylish gorefest that should keep them up nights.

Top Critic

A fun, 13-week anthology... What do you think is scarier: The Exorcist or The Texas Chainsaw Massacre? If you picked the latter, then Masters of Horror is for you.

Dec 7, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Repulsive enough to give Leatherface a drool-choked chuckle... Horror isn't my thing, but this is pretty good.

Audience Reviews for Masters of Horror: Season 1

Not that old but definitely shows its age. The segments weren't as good as I had hoped for considering the heavy hitter directors. But more often than not the segments had a nice interesting plot.
