LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Jason Priestley, Elliott
Gould and Christopher Lloyd are among the guest stars lined up
for the upcoming second season of Showtime's "Masters of
Horror" anthology series.

Priestley and Gould star in the episode "The Screwfly
Solution," about a deadly virus that transforms men into
psychotic killers.

Lloyd co-stars in the episode "Valerie On the Stairs,"
which centers on an aspiring novelist (Tyron Leitso) who is
visited by an muse-like ethereal creature with dark powers.

Other episodes include "The Washingtonians," a horrific
tale of patriotism, revisionist history and cannibalism; "Right
to Die," a ghostly take on the right-to-life debate; "Dream
Cruise," a Japanese ghost story; and "We All Scream for Ice
Cream," which centers on a guy who must face his childhood
fears in order to save his family as local children are
mystically being turned against their parents; "Sounds Like,"
about a man with extraordinary hearing who takes violent action
to silence the horrific cacophony in his head; and "The V
Word," about the dire consequences of two teenage boys'
decision to break into a mortuary.

The second season premieres October 27 on the premium cable
