Religious and soul spirits from your past can come to haunt you if you haven't faced them!
29 April 2007 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "Hitchhiker" episode titled "True Believer" is religious themed and spooky in it's own way and it proves that demons from your past can haunt you. Veteran actor Tom Skerritt stars as a tough and by the book homicide detective who's on a murder case in a house of worship. And he will soon find that when dealing with a murder of this kind that took place around a higher power it's a different story. Upon his investigation the flashbacks start to occur from years ago when he lost his daughter in a freak accident something that's haunted him for years. Religion then has a funny way to bring out the guilt and fear in him by the form of a nun in a very shocking and wicked manner. This episode certainly shows the moral lesson that your past can haunt you especially when you haven't faced it and still feel guilt, and with the help of higher power it can make you a true believer and take away a person's arrogance.
