15 Horror Movies That Went Too Far

Each segment created by a genre expert, “Masters of Horror” was an anthology series that ran from 2005 to 2007. “Imprint,” the intended 13th episode of Season 1, was directed by Takashi Miike, a man who is no stranger to filming extreme violence.

Set in 19th century Japan, “Imprint” sees an American journalist (Billy Drago) return to the country to find the sex worker he fell for but learns of the cruel fate and the supernatural shenanigans that befell her in his absence.

Like most anthology series, each episode of “Masters of Horror” varied in plot and theme. However, in “Imprint,” the series went a step too far. It was due to air in 2006 but the host network, Showtime, thought it too disturbing due to its depictions of torture. Despite edits from show-runner Mick Garris, the episode was canceled. To this day, it is still the only one of 26 episodes not to have aired in the United States.
