Nice Claustrophobic Episode
21 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

As the first season draws to a close, Thriller's offerings have become more sophisticated. Better writing certainly is evident. There is real atmosphere in this one and a fun plot. A pretty young woman is driving to New Orleans in a bad storm when shots are fired at her and she loses control of the car. While unconscious, she is taken to run down house peopled be a pack of depressed and violent characters. One of them is responsible for her staying alive. He is taken with her beauty but is terrified of what goes on in the house. There is one woman who goes by Grannie. It is Jeanette Nolan and she is almost a prototypical witch. She controls everything, including a psychotic young boy and another sibling, a girl who is kept in a room. The pretty prisoner begins to explore, getting closer and closer to a spirit that seems to pervade the place. She is kind and cares about the young people. Anyway, this is nice episode that keeps our attention throughout.
