MASTERS OF HORROR: DEER WOMAN (2005) *** ½

Director John (An American Werewolf in London) Landis brings his patented sense of humor to this entry about a cop (Brian Benben) tracking down a mysterious deer woman who seduces her lovers then tramples them to death with her hoofed feet. Cinthia Moura is breathtakingly beautiful as the titular Native American beastie whose top half is 100% sexpot and whose bottom half is total hoofed horror. Landis balances the chills and the chuckles with his usual aplomb and even tosses an American Werewolf reference in there too. Unfortunately the ending is kind of a letdown and they never answer the burning question: If you shoot a deer woman out of season, can you keep her? You might remember Benben from HBO’s Dream On which was also produced by Landis. Co-written by Landis’ son Max.
