Manufacturer Description

When stressed-out student Walter Gilman (Ezra Godden of DAGON) leases a space in a shabby old house, his graduate thesis researches begin to take some extremely strange twists: He suffers problems about a starved rat with a human face. He presumes that an entrance to another dimension might exist behind his wall.And he is seemingly seduced by a luscious she-demon who thirsts for souls of the innocent through a covenant that howls for blood. But when Walter must deal with the most depraved desire of all, will the line in between chaos, murder and unholy mayhem be crossed forever? Chelah Horsdal (HOLLOW MAN 2) and Jay Brazeau (INSOMNIA, THEY) co-star in this troubling shocker directed by Stuart Gordon, co-written by Gordon & Dennis Paoli (THE DENTIST, CASTLE FREAK) and based upon the infamous narrative by horror master H.P. Lovecraft

Director Stuart Gordon chose an H.P. Lovecraft story for his installation of Showtime's Masters of Horror series. So exactly what did you expect? This filmmaker got his horror-movie stimulates with his wild and fantastic Lovecraft flicks Re-Animator and From Beyond (following up years later with another H.P. tale, the fishy Dagon), so absolutely nothing could be more super-natural. For his hour-long episode, Gordon picked Dreams in the Witch House, which follows a student (Ezra Godden) at Miskatonic University (that's Lovecraft's frequently-mentioned fictional school) as he moves into a suspiciously low-cost boarding house. When he has extreme problems about a rat with a human face, it must be an indication, however the student is strongly attracted to a single mommy at your home, played by the magnificent appealing Chelah Horsdal. Some acceptable mood-setting comes thanks to Godden's senior downstairs next-door neighbor, and the half-dozen shocks are just great. Somehow the straight-line story dissatisfies, as the ultimate outcome of all of it seems fairly obvious from the opening scenes, and there's absolutely nothing much to complicate the slide into evil. Still, this episode benefits a passing grade by the rigorous standards of Miskatonic U. -- Robert Horton
