Manufacturer Description

Deep within the desperate hearts of the bereaved, there is a pact with the forces of darkness that demands new blood to resurrect the souls of the dead. Lori Petty (A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN and TANK GIRL) stars as a grieving mom with a remote estate, a ghastly trick, and a locked basement where abducted teen outcasts await an evil that feasts upon their virgin flesh. To satisfy a moms and dad's base deal, the beast must feed one last time. And tonight, the supreme scary will certainly start for those who do not hearken the cravings of THE FAIR HAIRED CHILD. Lindsay Pulsipher and William Samples co-star in this non-stop weird saga scripted by Matt Greenberg (HALLOWEEN H20, REIGN OF FIRE) and directed by William Malone that The Horror Channel calls "an ideal dark fairytale ... among the most solid and outstanding episodes to this day

The ninth episode in the well known Masters of Horror series, The Fair Haired Child, regrettably might have the least scare power. Director William Malone's (Feardotcom, The House on Haunted Hill) choice to cast the outcast teen, Tara (Lindsay Pulsipher), as a cute blond woman more fit to The O.C. than to scary, spoils an initial opportunity to persuade the audience of her suffering. Weak acting is the biggest hinderance, however. As Tara is abducted and thrown into a psychotic couple's basement as a sacrifice to the Devil to bring their dead child, Johnny (Jesse Haddock), back to life, Tara's fear fails to equate into actual dread. Black-and-white flashbacks of the ill couple seeing helplessly as their child drowns are equally corny. Johnny, the youngster zombie haunted by sense of guilt he understandings of living at the cost of others, particularly Tara's, is the only interesting character. That he is mute, interacting by scribbling thoughts into dirt, makes him eerily prophetic. As a character, Johnny frightens more than the stop-motion demon who takes teens away to the netherworld. Like House of Whipcord, this story of a basement-turned-torture chamber has appeal for its archetypal plot principle, but The Fair Hair Child lacks stars who convey actual angst. -- Trinie Dalton
