What happens to a friendship when it's put to the test? Or when one friend beckons another friend to share his addiction? When that addiction is warm human blood and your friend is a genuine vampire, then this clash-of-wills means only one thing: the Masters of Horror are on the job! From Ernest Dickerson, the director of Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight and Bones, comes a tale of friendship and fear, of horror and hormones, and how far one friend will go to save - or damn - the other with the December 11th premiere of Masters of Horror: The V Word on DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment. The V Word concludes the second season of the lauded (awards include an Emmy, two Saturn Awards and a Scream Award) anthology series that broke the rules and reaped worldwide praise for its groundbreaking excursions into horror. Stuffed with enough juicy bonus features to satisfy the toughest thirst for behind the scenes access, The V Word DVD has an anemic SRP of $14.98, with pre-book on November 8th.

Written by series creator and Co-Executive Producer Mick Garris, The V Word puts a grisly twist on teenage vampirism. For geeky best friends Kerry (Arjay Smith) and Justin (Branden Nadon), who've only experienced carnage via their video games, it's the ultimate late night dare: they want to see a real corpse. But when the pair breaks into a local mortuary, they unleash a ferocious ghoul (Michael Ironside, Scanners) who's hungry to share a few depraved urges of his own. Soon, besides contending with the most dreaded of teen fears - peer pressure - they must now face the kind that might curse their souls for eternity! Jodelle Ferland (Silent Hill) co-stars.
