some creepy elements
2 October 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

After being almost not in episode 2 McCloud is back in business. He's back with his jokes and stupidity to fool people and he's also back to capture some women. Yes, McCloud is still the playboy of the squad.

it's one of the episodes with a lot of talking and not that many action but still it's nice to see that they tried to put some creepy atmosphere towards it. Horror wasn't a big thing in 1971. So I can understand that when the main lead did had some hallucinations (or wasn't it) that it rather looked creepy and even scary like the scene with the painting.

Again they used rather big names (Cameron Mitchell) to attract people but here they didn't had a big lead like in Top of the World, Ma!
