It is called Highberger House, a place for unpublished writers to live and work without distractions while they continue to pile up rejection letters. But this building is haunted by more than just the specter of failed authors: There is the ghost of a beautiful woman in the hallways who cries out in fear and desire. And there is a beast in the walls that owns her body and soul, and now fiends for the blood of his creators. Christopher Lloyd, Tyron Leitso (HOUSE OF THE DEAD), and Tony Todd (CANDYMAN) star in this sexually charged shocker adapted from the story by Clive Barker about doomed dreams, rotted imaginations and the horrific secret that has given life to VALERIE ON THE STAIRS. watch

December 31, 2006: Valerie Drive-By

After a two-week holiday hiatus, it felt like home to watch the first glorious blood splats, and that eerie piano in the Masters of Horror opening sequence. It isn't often that horror fiends get their "own" TV series, so I really feel like I'm going through withdrawals when MoH is over, or even on break for a couple of weeks. Now that Dexter has become a favorite series among the horror crowd, it looks like Showtime's really got the goods for my most beloved genre. I've gotta say, once Masters of Horror is over this year, it's going to be a hellish wait for Showtime's horror audience, or at least, for this horror fan. First of all, I haven't heard whether or not a third season is on the books for MoH, and it's probably going to take a good year for season two of Dexter. At least I'll have Battlestar Galatica, Heroes and Lost in the new year, but they can't take things nearly as far as Dex and "The Masters." Ah well. I'll just have to break out the Buffy DVDs for the 200th time (how ... read more
