Weakest Episode of the First Three
23 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Police officer Harry Siegal is booted off the force, but not arrested, after beating a kidnapper to death. He goes into private practice as a gumshoe, which works well. When he takes on an infidelity case, though, the man he killed might get his revenge from his dying wish -- that Harry would never forget the horrible things he's done.

"Spooked" has some advantages over the first episode of "Fear Itself" ("The Sacrifice"). It starts out violent and intense, which hooks the audience. The pacing is slower which adds some suspense, which the first episode lacked almost completely. But beyond that, it was largely a disappointment.

Certain plot points made no sense. The third episode ("Family Man") has unexplained supernatural elements, but they cover it up with a discussion about God's Will. "Spooked" lacks any explanation at all, giving us unexplained sights, sounds and more. There is a question of why the woman in the film is concerned about Harry's past, and the way this is played out was unsatisfying. All in all, this had very few horror elements and attempted to be a drama... poorly.

After "The Sacrifice" was average, and this episode was gripping at first yet bland over the long haul, I had little hope for "Fear Itself". Luckily, this was fixed in the third part (see separate review) because I want this series to be a success. But as far as "Spooked" goes, if you're not interested in catching the entire run of this series, this is one you can skip without losing much sleep.
