don't know why you're stressing. It's obvious Mr. Drake has the hots for you. You couldn't flunk his class if you wanted to.
Don't pretend you haven't noticed how he looks at you. He wants to write a paper on your girl parts.
That is like beyond revolting.
Oh, yeah, then why are you blushing?
Because I've eaten my weight in fun-size candy.

Rob Schmidt, the man that gave us Wrong Turn and an episode in Masters of Horror gives us an episode in Fear Itself. The main actresses are Jessica Parker Kennedy, not known in the genre only for Decoys 2 but she gives a great performance. Also great is her opponent Anna Kendrick, better known for her part in all Twilight flicks. The storyline is very simple, being teenagers and bored they are searching for kick, it's Halloween so what could you better do than playing with an Ouija board. We all know by now what could happen by doing that and indeed a ghost appears. But for me this is the only episode so far were the use of the camera is done in an excellent way. Not the usual wide lens zoomed in to give a deformed creepy look, no frog shots, no, for example the way he filmed the swimming pool is excellent, it's all in blue and we know blue is the color that has the most difficulty to use due the appearance of noise. Very simple, watch some VHS and watch the color blue...back to the episode. Before you know it you are at the end of the episode. Even as there is no blood in it it is the suspense that makes it, and the simple shot at the stairs, won't spoil it, the focus on his face, well, that's creepy and well done. To conclude, here we have an example that you don't need blood to give it a horror feeling. Build your movie up towards the end. Okay, I admit, the real killer, easy to see who it is but still, this could almost equal, sigh, Masters of Horror.
