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!
