Masters of Horror
The director list, the "Masters" if you will, for this project is incredible. Just to name drop a few:
Dario Argento (Suspiria, Opera), Don Coscarelli (Phantasm, Bubba Ho-Tep), George Romero (king of zombies, need we say more?), John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing), John Landis (An American Werewolf in London), Rob Zombie (House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil? Rejects, and we've heard he's in a band too), Roger Corman (Little Shop of Horrors, Frankenstein Unbound), and Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Poltergeist).
Rumors have been flying about who else might eventually be involved and those names include everyone from legendary Japanese freak-show king Takashi Miike (Ichi the Killer, Visitor Q) to Canadian mind blower David Cronenberg (The Fly, Dead Ringers). Regardless of who is or is not added later, with all of the talent already confirmed, this project would have to try very hard to be anything less than amazing. We here at Horror.com can't wait!
With that in mind, we are very proud to be able to offer you a behind-the-scenes peek at one of the episodes of the upcoming series. Mick Garris, Henry Thomas, and others involved were kind enough to let us film a "making of" documentary for the Masters of Horror episode they were working on called "Chocolate". Forget that Willy Wonka remake and pay attention to this! Staci spent some quality time on the set with the "Chocolate" cast and crew, and we are sure you'll be impressed with the result.
