"Meat Loaf" Aday stars as Jake Feldman, a short-tempered furrier struggling to build a small-time business while being tormented by his obsession for a sexy stripper. But when a sadistic backwoods trapper (John Saxon of NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) kills a strange group of pet raccoons, Jake knows their luxurious hides could make a coat that will change his fortunes forever. Only these are no ordinary pelts: Everyone who comes in contact with the cursed furs is soon driven to unspeakable acts of self-mutilation and extreme violence. Even if Jake can now possess the flesh he desperately covets, what horrific final price will he pay for the skin he’s in?
Amazing episode of the Masters of Horror series - really cool storyline, good characters and some really intense "suicide" scenes make this one you should definitely check out. Special effects were nice...all the blood and guts looked realistic, and there was plenty of it for those of you (like me) that are always hoping for more over-the-top, gruesome and gory scenes in a movie. For one that's only an hour long, it definitely delivers.
Pelts is one of my favorite Masters of Horror. The other ones are Cigarette Burns, Imprint and Jenifer
I’m an Argento fan, mostly his cinematographers… some of his stories like Suspiria so I was curious about this having not added it to my collection. Well, for an episode? of the Masters of Horror series? which I’ve never checked into prior to this, it’s ok. It’s basically a very basic, ridiculous tale about possessed raccoon pelts which drive those who come into contact with them to self destruction via self mutilation or various other gory manners of self inflicted death. This is just a hair away from 2 stars, and almost 1 star on a bad day. I only give it 3 stars because it’s kind of stupid and funny.
