MASTERS OF HORROR: THE FAIR-HAIRED CHILD (2005) ***
I liked William Malone’s House on Haunted Hill and Fear Dot Com (more than most), but I really wouldn’t call him a “Master of Horror”. Oh well, he does a pretty good job with this tale about a girl who is kidnapped by a mysterious couple. They lock her up in the basement with their strange mute son and together they have to battle a freaky looking monster. It starts out kinda slow, but the Grimm’s fairy tale aspects of the story works, the effects (especially the monster) and the gore are decent enough and there’s a pretty good twist ending. Lori (Point Break) Petty co-stars as one of the kidnappers. Malone also directed the gory Alien knock-off, Creature.
