Season Two of "Masters" Taking Shape

Ah, it's been a fallow period in horror lately, don't you think? You knew it would come, what with 2005 being such a banner year. Still, there are glimmers of hope out there in the darkness. One shimmering jewel in the wilderness continues to be Showtime's "Masters of Horror" series, and Fangoria has the skinny on season two.

The fact that seven directors from season one have signed on for a second pass speaks volumes about this groundbreaking series of gruesome tales. Here's a run-down of who you can expect to see warming the director's chair once again: John Landis, Dario Argento, Tobe Hooper, John Carpenter, Joe Dante, Stuart Gordon and series creator Mick Garris.

Add to that the fact these guys will be shooting from material by such literary giants as Edgar Allan Poe and Clive Barker, and there is no reason to believe that season two is going to be a jot less enthralling than season one. I can't figure out why Stephen King hasn't been involved yet, but we can't have everything.--Pete Mesling
