This is a very good episode from the Sixth Sense, probably one of the best I've seen to date, and it revolves around a woman named Carey(Meg Foster), who's seeing visions of executions near the house where she and others are stranded during a hurricane. There's about 5 or 6 total guests, including Dr. Rhodes(Gary Collins), and I'm not quite sure why they're all together, but everything seemed to shape up nicely, especially the solid performance by R.G. Armstrong(Jack Preston), who basically runs the house/shop where everyone's stranded waiting out the storm; an odd coincidence is that Hurricane Sandy is currently rampaging the east coast as I write this. The visions that Carey has are pretty creepy, as an executioner wearing the hood and cape points at her a few times, and she sees all the guests dead in watery graves, including Dr. Rhodes, who is one of the few who doesn't think that Carey's crazy. A cool scene has a tree crashing through a window, and soon after, all of them ride out the storm in the same place that Carey's having the visions, even though she warns them not to go inside, but stay in the house instead. She eventually figures out that the executioner in her visions was Jack, although not sure if it was actually him or a descendant of his doing the killing, as the place was once a torture chamber of sorts years prior. The next scene is slightly silly, as the place starts to tremble and several rocks fall on top of Jack and kills him, while he makes no attempt to leave like everyone else. This is still a very solid episode, and the editing seemed coherent for a change, and I would recommend this if you get the rare chance to see it.
