Before Sam paints the purple man, he takes the brush with his right hand, then he paints with the right hand. After the camera switches he is painting with his left hand and then it goes back to his right hand. See more »


Sheriff: [disbelieving] And you saw him too, the man with the hook.
Dean Winchester: Yes, I told you, we all saw him. We fought him off, and then he ran.
Sheriff: And that's all.
Dean Winchester: Yeah, that's all!
Sheriff: Listen, you and your brother...

Aren't you glad you didn't turn on the light?
4 December 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Iowa, while dating in a car parked nearby a river, the Theta Sorority pledge Lori Sorenson (Jane McGregor) and her boyfriend hear a sharp noise on the body and top of the car. When the boy leaves the car to see what is happening, he is attacked by an invisible being and killed. Dean and Sam decide to investigate the phenomenon in their hunting trip and arrive in the University of Iowa. When Lori's roommate is also attacked and murdered, the brothers realize that they have to face the evil and moralist Hook Man.

In spite of having some scaring moments, like for example when Lori reads on the wall "Aren't you glad you didn't turn on the light?", I found this episode one of the weakest of "Supernatural". My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Homem Gancho" ("Hook Man")
