Imprint

I bought and finished watching Imprint from the Masters of Horror Showtime series. I was kinda surprised that it was Showtime refused to show the episode. The episode touched on several taboo subjects (like good horror should from time to time), but the violence was probably no worse than Dario's Jenifer episode. What are you thoughts on the episode? Why do you think they refused to show it?

I really enoyed it. Miike's films always look amazing and the visual style in this movie was really impressive. Plus the mass ammounts of fetus in the movie was pretty sweet.

I think you are probably right...isn't it funny how the fetus scenes were probably viewed as unacceptable, but prolonged torture scenes are alright.

Bloody fetuses are defiantly what put it over the top.

Anyway, I loved that episode and I love MoH. Season 2 is already underway!

I loved it, another winner from Miike, disturbing and and beautiful. Its a shame this was banned from Showtime.

I found that episode to be the only good episode out of the first season of masters of horror, But I will admit Takashi Miike is my favorite director. I remember being so pissed off that showtime would air his episode, It made me think, Did they know what they were getting themselves into letting Miike loose on american cable waves, I guess bloody fetuses and parasydic twins are a tad to much for them. I thought it was f'n brillant. I think the masters of horror people must have heard the buzz of how great and bold a director Miike was and probably signed him up in that and his track record of films that are insane.

Only blame Showtime, which don't own Masters of Horror, they merely air them. Mick Garris, the brains behind MoH liked the episode. They aired it in the other countries MoH showed on.

I'm not sure if it was the fetii per se that banned the episode, as this season's John Carpenter episode is all about abortion...

i agree, bloody fetuses are fucked up, but showtime's gotta be serious. torturing someone is just as bad. i mean, its an adult program on a channel not easily available to little kids without parental advisory. i think its kind of whack they banned it considering its a short horror film. what else did they expect from miike tho?
