It all began as an idea, discussed over a few casual dinners. But these gatherings were different, as they were attended by some of the most renowned names in horror filmmaking. The result was an award-winning, internationally honored series of ground-breaking tales exploring the dark recesses of the human imagination.
On February 13, 2007, Anchor Bay Entertainment introduces the first DVD release of the second season of the acclaimed Masters of Horror anthology. Pelts, a horrifying tale of fashion and fright, is directed by Italian horror master Dario Argento, who directed such chilling classics as Suspiria and Do You Like Hitchcock?, as well as last season's Masters of Horror smash provocative episode "Jenifer." Starring Meat Loaf (Fight Club, The Rocky Horror Picture Show) and veteran horror film star John Saxon (A Nightmare On Elm Street), Masters of Horror: Pelts lets the fur fly with a gaze of specially produced bonus materials and sets a new standard for shocks-per-dollar value with the ultra-low SRP of $14.98. Pre-book is January 10, 2007.
Adapted in lurid Giallo-style from F. Paul Wilson's (The Keep) short story by Matt Venne, Pelts gives "the skin trade" a whole new supernatural and bloody twist. Struggling fur trader Jake Feldman (Meat Loaf) knows that you can't make a coat without breaking a few animals' necks. When he creates a luxurious fur coat from a family of raccoons, he realizes he's made his ticket back to the big time, as well as potentially winning the heart of model Mira (Melissa Gonzalez). But this exquisite fur coat does more than just dazzle the eye - it possesses animal desires and the power to exact revenge.
