Storyline

Sam and Dean head to Pennsylvania after reading a case of vampirism. They arrive in the middle of the Oktoberfest pretending to be FBI agents and they interrogate the only witness, the drunkard without credibility Ed Brewer, and Dean flirts with the blonde bartender Jamie. After interviewing Ed, who insists to tell that Dracula has attacked the victim, they decide to leave town. However, the youngster Rick Deacon is slaughtered by a werewolf in accordance with the statement of his girlfriend and sooner the mummy kills the security guard in the Canonsburg Museum and the brother decides to investigate further. When Dean and Jamie are attacked by Dracula and Dean yanks his ear, they conclude that it is skin of a shapeshifter that is impersonating the Universal Studio classic monsters.

A high water mark
5 August 2013 | by (Portland, OR) – See all my reviews

Brilliant nods to detective and noir genres, let alone monster movies. Full of smart and witty humor, great acting, and self-aware meta-fiction that isn't cloying or brash. Takes an interesting and risk gamble on the plot/premise and pays off handsomely. I'm not a die-hard fan of the series, this one stands alone fairly well and is one of the top 20 must- watch episodes of television ever, in my opinion, just as a work of art if nothing else. That said, it's also genuinely funny and the lead character Dean isn't as eye-rolling dorky-Cassanova as he tends to be in other episodes. His womanizing is, well, let's just say he's kind of cute and earnest this time around.
