Jenifer (2005, USA) C-58m. n/r D: Dario Argento. Starring Steven Weber, Laurie Brunetti, Carrie Ann Fleming, Harris Allan, Mark Acheson. Episode produced for the Masters of Horror TV special (created by Mick Garris), where filmmakers such as John Carpenter, John Landis or Tobe Hooper tried their hands at horror shorts. Here, the Italian grandmaster Argento tells the story of cop Weber (who also scripted), who saves a young woman from being killed. It turns out the hideously disfigured, mute girl not only has an appetite for sex, but also for human flesh! Solidly made, with both sex and gore, but its plot remains too obvious and unlikely. Overall an okay view, slightly below par for Argento. Good score by Claudio Simonetti (Goblin).
