"Haunting" has an "Evil Dead" feel
22 September 2007 | by xenatorresSee all my reviews

What should have been the season six premiere of "Xena" (as it was once scheduled to be during the massive shuffling of the first four episodes before they aired), "The Haunting of Amphipolis" might not be on par with "Adventures in the Sin Trade" or "Fallen Angel", but it followed the trend of pushing the envelope and doing something new and unique.

The episode has a very "Evil Dead" feel, with a nice blend of action, horror, comedy and, yes, cheese (the good kind). It is mostly a bottle episode and relies on the talents of Lawless, O'Connor and Wilkinson to carry it – it's in good hands. O'Connor delivers her creepiest performance in this episode – it's certainly something you'll want to see.

The biggest highlight of this episode is the return of Livia in a fabulous scene that is a mirror of a scene from "Dreamworker" in which the newly reformed person faces their dark half. Wilkinson is brilliant as Eve verses Livia, matching Lawless' "Dreamworker" performance while, at the same time, making the scene fresh.
