The virgin teenager Tara is outcast in school and neglected by her mother. While riding her bike back home from school, she is drugged, kidnapped and brought to an isolated mansion by the insane pianist Anton. His cellist wife Judith lures Tara to obtain personal information, and then they lock her in the basement where she meets their son Johnny trying to commit suicide. Tara discovers that the creepy couple lost their son drowned in a lake twelve years ago, and have made a pact with a demon to bring him back to life. The price would be the sacrifice of twelve teenagers, and Tara is the last one. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

By far the creepiest episode , but others are better.
26 December 2011 | by harveyrock12See all my reviews

now this is one of the best masters of horror episodes , think it is on the same line as cigarette burns and incident on and off a mountain road. They all follow behind the number 1 episode pick me up, but even so this was by far the creepiest one of all i got pretty scared when i first saw the creature its movements the face , everything about it is shockingly creepy.

and i was not expecting to jump as many times as i did , but felt that they should have shown more of the creature and played out the romance between Tara and johnny , but all is fair , great horror flick i have seen better but I have seen a lot worse.
