Did You Know?


There is a flash of a restaurant front right before Dean and Sam talk on the phone. The restaurant shown is "Green Dragon Inn" which is located on Union Street in Boston, MA along the Freedom Trail, not in Ohio, where the episode takes place. See more »


When the Civil War buff is shot by "Lincoln", he is shot off-screen and supposedly killed in the exact manner of Lincoln; However, Lincoln was shot in the back of the head when he was assassinated and at close range by handgun, so there would be no castoff on the wall. Lincoln also died in a hotel room at the Petersen House across the street from his wounds a few days later, not immediately. See more »

Horror/Comedy at it's finest!
8 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My favorite genre within horror is comedy and horror mixed together, so I was very pleased with this episode! While we have had comedic episodes before, this one came in a campier, cheesier state. There were a lot of memorable scenes and lines, including the conversation in Spanish exchanged from Sam and a cleaning lady. Another example that i thought was clever was when Dean tells Paris Hilton that he has not seen House of Wax, and Sam makes a look (because Jared Padalecki was actually in that film with Hilton). There were many inside jokes in this episode, and I had a blast! We need episodes like these in a while, and this reminded me of great horror/comedies out there, like the recent Drag Me To Hell, and the underrated Jennifer's Body. GREAT EPISODE!
