Remember Stigmata, remember The Fog remake. Both movies were spitted out by the horror geeks. Although Stigmata wasn't that bad at all it is now gone in obscurity. Rupert Wainwright, the director of those movies went on doing other stuff but was asked to deliver an episode of Fear Itself. Save the best for last they say and that's what happens with the series. Again, Echoes is one I liked a lot. The storyline is easy to follow but it is the building of the movie, or episode that works. Here again some things aren't explained but that isn't really important. Why another man appears in a window, those damn windows are a mystery in Fear Itself, isn't explained but what he does is what you will like. And slowly we go from love to hate to murder to weird things going on in a bathroom. The ending what is the main reason why Fear Itself failed is a good ending. Not one like many episodes were they see that they are 40 minutes into the editing and has to end it roughly to clock in at 41, no this one has an open ending but yes, it works. And it's an episode were blood flows really often. So far I can conclude that the directors used to make series delivered the best episode into the series.
