    Well, the first season of Showtime's MASTERS OF HORROR has come to completion, and talks for a second season are already brewing. Which "Master" of horror that wasn't in the first season would you like to see for round two?

    I went with Cronenberg. I just know he'd do something amazing.

    Sorry "Hostel" haters... I went with Roth. I'd love to see what he'd do with a short story and how he'd convert it into an interesting visual piece.

    I went with Zombie. I think he would do great with the format. Sam Raimi would also be good, but he isn't ever going to do it. David Cronenberg, well, I don't think the format and the schedules and the BS would be his cup of tea. I can see him signing up and dropping out though.

    Bob Clark. I'm looking forward to what he can do with horror today since it has been so long for him.

    All of the above of course, but I'll choose "other" for Jeff Lieberman, director of SQUIRM, BLUE SUNSHINE, and JUST BEFORE DAWN.

    I was thinking of putting him, but I wasn't sure if anyone would vote for him. I've added him and changed your vote.

    Just be careful, because you might get Satan's Little Helper Part Deux. :nervous:

    Voted for Zombie, I am sure he could come up with a suitably twisted short film. Romero could do a great job too. Hate Franco, Lenzi and Roth, not really my cup of tea. I don't think Raimi, Friedkin or De Palma would consider lending their talents to such an endeavor. Bob Clark has been out of the horror genre for a while now and Craven, to me at least, is largely washed up. Cronenberg could be interesting though. As for anything related to J-horror, I am sick to death of it so I really have no interest in Mitsubishi Mike.

    Went with Lenzi.

    Knew he would be in the minority so I wanted to help him out.

    BTW, Cornenberg is an ass in person. That kind of changed my opinion a little.

    Cronenberg could,I think,fit the hour format more readilly than the others.

    I'd like to see Romero do one, so I voted for him cause it feels wrong to have a show called "Masters of Horror" and not have Romero there. Rob Zombie would be awesome.

    I went with Craven. I think he'd at least make a decent watch. Craven has his ups and downs, but at least his movies are all pretty much watchable.

    I think that an Italian guy featured again would be great though for next year. Maybe even Lamberto Bava or Michele Soavi instead of Lenzi.

    Most people are. One moment you are a normal well-reserved fellow, next moment you realize you are Canadian and suddenly become obsessed with transmogrification.

    It just happens like that sometimes.

    I have to go with Cronenberg. I would say Miike but he already had his shot and I don't think he'd trust them again. Cronenberg is pretty much the only director on this list that, short of Crash, has consistently blown me away with his movies. Raimi's a close second, but would you give up Spider-Man to do an episode of television for Showtime? I doubt it.

    That's an interesting list, and i can't choose top priority. Though, i wouldn't be interested in anything Wes Craven, Jeff Lieberman, Eli Roth or Rob Zombie makes, but everyone else certainly should be invited to MoH.

    PS: Cronenberg certainly isn't an ass person, in my opinion Wes Craven, for example, is. But then, i probably define an ass person differently.
