Brothers against Evil: Poltergeists … from the Past!
20 April 2007 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

Pretty much every installment in the "Supernatural" series is a real winner and it already would be a darn shame to miss out on even a single one, but if there's one episode you absolutely can't afford yourself to skip, it definitely is "Home"! This ninth episode is crucial and takes us back to the events and sinister atmosphere of the prologue in the pilot-episode, when Sam & Dean were just kids and witnessed the horrible death of their mother, caused by "something" that is ultimately evil. The youngest brother Sam is slowly but surely developing telekinetic powers himself and nightmares indicate him to return to their parental house in Kansas, where a new family of a single mother and her two kids are being terrorized by poltergeists. Sam and especially Dean are reluctant to go back, because of all the painful memories and the still unexplained disappearance of their father, but they're strong and eventually go on the road. With the help of a befriended spiritual medium, they discover that their old house has become a magnet for supernatural evil ever since the first incident occurred. The house is infested with negative energy and an aggressive poltergeist settled itself there. "Home" effectively combines the genuine suspense of an old-fashioned haunted-house chiller with the sincere sentiment of the two heroes' traumatic childhood. Everything in this house reminds them of their parents and somehow Sam realizes they were never this close to being reunited with them. Ghosts usually aren't my personal favorite horror icons, but the spirits dwelling around in this house are truly malicious and even aim their terror at young children. The special effects are amazing in this episode, the slow clarification of the Winchester family situation is truly fascinating and – as always – the dialogs and one-liners refer to a lot of classic horror films. For example, When Missouri is busy exorcising the negative energy in the house; Dean refers to her as Zelda Rubinstein (the eerie woman from Poltergeist). I said it before and I'll say it again: great show!
