Showtime Okays Season Two Of Horror Anthology

So Showtime has ordered a second batch of stand-alone fright flicks for "Masters of Horror," to debut in the fall. They've already used top names like John Carpenter, Dario Argento, Joe Dante, John Landis and others -- all seduced with the offer of complete creative control. The only problem? They got scared during season one. Showtime freaked out when Takashi Miike turned in "Imprint," a truly outlandish, envelope-pushing entry. They couldn't even bring themselves to air it at, say, midnight? I wonder what their first clue was that they might not have the stomach for it?
"Definitely, at the script stage we made comments about the aborted fetuses," a Showtime executive said.
