Storyline

After two years, Sam Winchester is suddenly visited by his big brother Dean, who insists he helps look for their father John who disappeared on his latest 'hunt' for poltergeists- he accepts only if back in time for a crucial interview. They trace dads tracks for a 'Woman in White', the spirit of a wife who killed her own children after finding out her husband committed adultery and now haunts and kills unfaithful men. She even attacks Sam, who is loyal to his girlfriend. Luckily Dean, who needed nothing more then a paper-clip to escape from police arrest -they used fake identities- and carry off dads notes, arrives just in time. Still Sam decides to return, but the welcome changes his life forever... Written by KGF Vissers

The beginning of a phenomenon...
8 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember watching the Pilot years ago, and remember getting scared. Of course, I was a kid back then, but the Pilot remains just as intriguing as one can hope for.

I first thought that the whole series would be about this Lady in White AKA Mourning Woman. Being the network the WB was back then, I would have expected that, but then I realized how much of a horror show this was. The Pilot remains one of the scariest TV episodes of all time. It is masterfully executed and directed, it has stood the test of time.

Of course, the series has definitely changed over the years, from being a horror show to a show that has horror, comedy, and much more deeper story lines involved. But the fact remains that this remains the key beginning of a great start!
