Cronenberg crafts one of Season 1's most memorable episodes
2 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

Friday the 13th: The Series 1.12 (Faith Healer) Jack calls on an old friend, Jerry (Robert Silverman who'd later have a part in the Friday the 13th movie fanchise with "Jason X" which as an interesting tidbit David Cronenberg, who directed this episode is also in that film) who debunks fraudulent faith healers to help with getting back a cursed glove that has the power to heal any ailment, but to do so must kill one person for every one that's healed. It's currently in the possession of televangelist who Jerry had exposed as a charlatan earlier in the episode. But Jerry has his own plans for the accursed glove.

Acclaimed director David Cronenberg bring his identifiable visual flair to this episode which ranks amongst the best of season 1's offerings. It has a very memorable cursed antique and a great storyline. Towards the end Micki references a cursed cape that will come into play in the very next episode, 'The Baron's Bride' (just thought I'd toss that in for trivia buffs). But yeah back to the episode at hand, it's a very good watch indeed.
