click to enlarge Masters of Horror: John - Carpenter's Cigarette Burns  -  - Directed by John Carpenter  - Anchor Bay Entertainment  -  - Due to a terrifying lack of premium cable channels, I - woefully missed the entire season of Showtime's - "Masters of Horror," in which a "master" of the genre, - ranging from Dario Argento to John Landis, was given - free reign to make a one-hour horror movie. Luckily, - Anchor Bay is releasing each episode and packing them - with scads of salivatory special features. The first - volume, Cigarette Burns, by far is the best (and - scariest) thing he's done since the underrated Prince - of Darkness. In Cigarette Burns, a film - collector tries to find the ultimate snuff film, La Fin - Absolue Du Monde, notorious for causing anyone - who views it to go insane. This is classic Carpenter, - folks, as well as a must-see for any serious horror fan. -  Louis Fowler
