The House From Hell
5 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

A drifter enters an oddball house in the middle of nowhere.

Not a classic but Limits just seemed to do the oddball-house-in-the-middle-of-nowhere thing well. It would do a better job of it in the coming episode: The Forms Of Things Unknown (this is actually one of my very favourites of the whole series).

A very hard episode to review, I can't really single out clever things about this hour, all I can say is it will never escape my memory for whatever reason???????????

The closing two minutes is without question the best part of the episode so don't give up on this one...even if that old lady gets on your nerves at bit!
