In the beginning two guys are playing a first person shooter video game against each other and one claiming the other is cheating. A reference to the pilot of Threat Matrix (2003). Executive producer John Shiban was a writer for that show. See more »

Brothers against Evil: Wendigo
2 March 2007 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

Episode two of "Supernatural" and the ice have definitely been broken. There were the pilot – understandably - focused on the introduction of the two main character and didn't really dig into the mystery of the Lady in White, episode two fully centers on the brothers' battle against yet another type of supernatural evil; the Wendigo. The instructions in their father's journal lead Sam and Dean to Lost Creek, Colorado, where several people went missing over the past few weeks after hiking in the gigantic Blackwater forest. The authorities presume there's a wild grizzly bear on the loose, yet no bodies have yet been discovered and there appears to be an awkward history of missing person cases that repeats itself every 23 years. Sam and Dean team up with a beautiful girl who's looking for her vanished brother and together they face the horror of the Wendigo. What I love so much about this TV-series is how the script gives insightful descriptions of the types of evil the brothers deal with. Being a horror fan, I already encountered the term "Wendigo" in several movies, yet only in "Supernatural" they carefully explain it's an ancient Indian warrior that gained immortality and super strength through eating human flesh. "Wendigo" is a terrific episode! The atmosphere is very reminiscent to those typically old-fashioned backwoods-slashers of the early 80's, like "Just Before Dawn", "The Final Terror" and "Midnight". The Blackwater woods are sublimely portrayed as the inescapable territory of a monstrous predator and especially the underground liar – where the Wendigo saves his victims – looks genuinely uncanny. This episode features plenty of exciting action scenes and the usual amount of witty dialogs. Perhaps it's still too soon to compare this series with other thriller-highlights on television but, so far, I like it a whole lot better than "The X-Files" or "Millennium". The show also mildly reminds me of the prematurely canceled occult series "Brimstone".
