Two episodes of the 13-part American horror series, featuring stand-alone stories written and directed by some of the biggest names in world horror. Directed by John Carpenter, 'Cigarette Burns' follows a man trying to track down a rare print of a foreign film that is rumoured to drive its audience mad, before igniting and setting fire to the theatre. When he finally tracks it down, he discovers that all of the rumours are true. 'Dreams in the Witch House' is based on the short story by legendary writer H.P. Lovecraft, and follows a young college student (Ezra Godden) who rents a loft apartment in the New England town of Arkham. Before long his studies are derailed by horrific visions of a 17th-century witch and her hideous familiar, a rat with a human face. Struggling against these visions, the student has to stop dark forces from killing his neighbour's baby.
