Storyline

Four criminals are on the way to a hospital when their suburban breaks down. Trying to keep their comrade alive, they hike through the snow and stumble upon a fort. The fort's inhabitants, a trio of beautiful sisters, take them in and care for them. However, things are not all they seem to be in the fort once the lights go out. Now in a fight for all their lives, the quartet must find a way to escape alive before they become a sacrifice to a creature more terrifying than they could ever realize. Written by bioguyver43

Good first episode
6 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

4 brothers take refuge in a fort inhabited by 3 beautiful girls. Unsurprisingly, the girls and the fort have some dark secrets...like that creature outside.

"The Sacrifice" (an adaptation of Del Howison's short story "The Lost Herd" by Mick Garris) is a good way to kick off the series "Fear Itself." The show itself is basically "Masters of Horror" for basic cable, so no major gore, or sex and nudity, or profanity. Still, there's plenty to like. The acting (particularly from Jesse Plemons and Rachel Miner) is quite good. Also, since there can't be much of the red stuff, the episode opts with suspense, which for the large part succeeds. Add to a great creature, and you have a winner.

That's not to say that there aren't any flaws. The conclusion for instance, is a bit of a letdown, and a few lines of dialog fall flat. Still, it's a good start for the series, and makes me look forward to more.
