It was my first
11 July 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is what happens when you want killer ratings. You get killed. The episode is about television host who dares to go in one of the most dangerous haunted houses along with his camera man. The episode starts off a little slow and the characters are all extremely unlikeable.

But once it gets going, it becomes the spookiest episode to date. Especially once the camera man is hanged and he runs into the room where the murderess is waiting with a chainsaw. The episode is very atmospheric and the final shot of the episode was very effective. He got what he wanted, very high ratings.

This episode is a little special to me because it was my first, and made me addicted to the show in the first place.
