Storyline

Sam leaps into of a second-rate horror writer, Joshua Rey, on Halloween 1964. Ziggy confirms that Sam is there because of Rey's fiancée Mary Greely. A series of bizarre events lead to the death of a handyman and then an elderly neighbor. Al is convinced that Mary is responsible somehow. Sheriff Ben Masters suspects Rey while Sam is sure that the sheriff is the guilty party. Sam constantly sees a goat at the site of the deaths and soon realizes that he is combating an evil force, perhaps the Devil himself. Written by garykmcd

Horror Comes to Quantum Leap
25 December 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

An excellent episode with Sam leaping into a house of horrors. A handyman is killed after he falls from his ladder after Sam sees a goat pull on a rag that was tied to it. Problem is, nobody else has seen the goat or where the goat could have come from in the first place. Then an old lady friend is killed by a snake. Is his wife the killer or maybe the town sheriff? Sam has to figure this one out while more and more strange things happen. Then there's this boy named Stevie who wants to write a book. While driving a red and white 1958 Plymouth Fury Sam crashes and then tells Stevie that "its almost like the car drove itself."
