This Friday night on Showtime Stuart Gordon’s long-awaited episode of Masters of Horror, his adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Black Cat,” will finally air. This is the one I personally have been waiting for since the second series was first announced; it’s only fitting it should premiere on Poe’s birthday!
As you may recall, the one and only Jeffrey Combs start as Mr. Poe, having all sorts of issues with the titular feline as the pic on the right exemplifies. No matter how dull some may have thought this season has been so far, it’s hard not to get excited at the thought of Gordon and Combs together again. Check out the official Masters of Horror site for more pics!
Not enough Gordon/Combs goodness for you? Good, cause a reader named William just dropped us a line with the heads up that part of the footage cut from Gordon’s other Lovecraftian masterpiece, From Beyond, has shown up on YouTube! The full, uncut high definition version of the film saw its premiere on Monsters HD many moons ago (still waiting to hear what MGM’s DVD plans are for it…), but if you missed it, now you can get an extended look at the eyeball sucking sequence! Nasty stuff! Click here to check it out!
