Masters of Horror
Thirteen of the greatest minds of the horror genre have gathered to tell their darkest dreams in their own unique styles in a new Showtime series. Each one-hour film is a stand-alone exercise in terror from the likes of Romero, Carpenter, Landis, Argento, and many others. And now, IDW presents a year-long exploration of these chilling movies. Up first is the two-part “Incident On and Off a Mountain Road,” originally written by Joe R. Lansdale and adapted for Showtime by Don Coscarelli (Phantasm, Bubba Ho-Tep). In part one, Ellen, a seemingly defenseless young woman, is lost in the woods and comes into contact with the deformed, demented serial killer Moonface. But Ellen isn’t as helpless or innocent as she initially seems…this special debut issue, adapted for comics by IDW’s Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall (Shaun of the Dead) and Jeremy Haun (Desperadoes: Banners of Gold) will feature covers from Masters of Horror conceptual artist Caniglia and a special photo cover of Moonface, too.
