A haunting and spooky tale that proves your past can bring out demons to take you down.
14 June 2008 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

Just watched my first episode of the NBC series "Fear Itself" and it was certainly entertaining and held my interest. Titled "Spooked" starring TV and B movie veteran Eric Roberts as a cop who bends the book as he takes his job a little to far by getting aggressive with criminal suspects. So upon his suspension from the force he becomes a gumshoe type P.I. and also he's very down on his luck as he turns to the bottle to handle his doubt. Then after many years he gets a call to investigate an alleged affair for a woman(Cynthia Watros)who thinks her husband is playing to much. Yet the job duties require the watch to be from an old abandoned house that's supposedly haunted. So one by one images of ghosts, demons, and most revealing flashbacks from the P.I.'s past are shown and these images involve the bringing out of guilt and remorse in which leads to a shocking twist in the end. Overall well done horror episode for TV.
