Wanted more pain
11 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

My summary line isn't saying this is a bad episode, it was pretty decent actually, but not too much happens in terms of the voodoo spell put on a man named Raphael(Alejandro Rey), who basically steals a woman named Shelia(Susan Strasberg), from a man named Alex(Barry Atwater). Keeping track? Don't get this confused with an earlier episode called "The Doll", and even though that episode is better than this one, I thought there were good performances by all involved, including an interesting scene or 2 from Jean Durand(Andrew)and Murray Matheson(Dr. Strang), especially an effective scene with the latter and Alex in a darkened house, soon after Alex decides to use voodoo on Raphael. It's entirely possible this episode was edited, as I seem to recall more pain inflicted upon Raphael by the curse, but this time around, I only got to see Alex's hands trying to crush the doll, which was made out to resemble poor Raphael, who only writhed in pain one time on the boat he and Shelia were about to sail away on. As I say this, I'm not wishing that much more pain on him, but it would've added to the episode. The ending was unexpected, and that's a good thing.
