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

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

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.

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.

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