The cult of Machida
16 November 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Buffy and Cordelia is invited to a fraternity party, but the fraternity is a cult and plan to use them as an offering to their snakelike patron.

The story in this episode is great and the execution is splendid. The fraternity is very cult-like with robes and a well placed base of operations. At the center of this episode is the unknown workings of the very secretive fraternities, you just don't known what might lie at their center (The Skulls is an other movie that deals with this issue). The acting is good while not breathtaking and the effects is just great, the snakelike patron is perhaps the best made effect in this episode (yes, yes I known that given the possibilities in our day and time it could be better, but this is/was not a million dollar budget) but the cave or cellar is also good. An 8 out of 10.
