The teenager Shelby Johnson is the daughter of Officer Dan Johnson and best friend of her schoolmate Becca. One day, Becca proposes to Shelby to build a spirit box and make a séance. They contact their former mate Emily D'Angelo, who committed suicide in a lake, and she tells that she was murdered but does not give the name of the killer. The two girls investigate the case leaving Shelby's father Officer Dan Johnson upset. Soon they find a suspect and Shelby has a great surprise. "The Spirit Box" is maybe the best episode so far of Fear Itself, with a cast with Martin Donovan, Anna Kendrick and Mark Pellegrino. The creepy and tense story has a surprising plot point and a good conclusion. My vote is seven. Title (Brazil): "The Spirit Box" Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Where is The Supernatural?
19 July 2011 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Another example of an episode who forces a supernatural element just to justify his presence in a so called horror series.

But, unlike the previous one, "Chance", here it works.

The director, Rob Schmidt, of "Wrong Turn" fame, makes an incredible job in generating suspense and trying to keep the final twist a surprise... And almost succeeds, because the end really is forced.

But the way until there goes on smoothly, with a nice cast and excellent camera work and cinematography; the close up on the professor after the stairs fall is really creepy.

With this one, the score of "Fear Itself" is Turds 6 x 5 OK episodes.
