A writer heads to a small town to try and recharge his creative juices. Unfortunately for him, the story he's working on seems to be happening to him and his wife, and it seems the darkness itself around their cabin is out to get them.
A best selling author has not written anything since his last book, a few years back. His wife, trying to help him get past this writer's block, invites a few friends to the cabin where they are staying to aid her into this task. But, unknown to her and anybody else, the writer has a dark secret and his past is catching up with them, when a book, loaded with evil witchcraft, is delivered to their doorstep that same night...

Coincidentally, both Victoria Pratt (Robbie) and Ashley Scott (Lisa) have played superheroes with catlike abilities, making their "catfight" in this episode an amusing head-canon. Pratt played Shalimar Fox on the series Mutant X. Her character is a genetically enhanced Mutant with feline characteristics and abilities. Scott played Huntress, the daughter of Catwoman and Batman, in the series Birds of Prey. Huntress is a Metahuman who inherits her mother's catlike abilities. See more »
I researched the director and let's say, he's a bit unknown. But what an episode he delivers. I can easily say that it is based on Evil Dead. Friends turning into demons after receiving a book called The Circle. I won't spoil the plot but it is great. There is suspense , and blood and we already know that that isn't really available in the series. It even has some creepy shots and the use of shaky camera's didn't bother me at all, it was used in a fight between a demon and a human. Indeed, it's a bit Evil Dead mixed with Rec and The Mist. It's the only episode that i dare to say, it could have been on Masters of Horror. If only all episodes were like this.
