I just read the short storie...
27 March 2020 | by haarlokkSee all my reviews

And then decided to watch this. The actors are decent enough, but not anything like the characters in the story. Like others has mentioned, the story is very much inspired by Lovecraft, but they didn't make this episode dark or creepy enough.

The worst thing about this episode was the music, just awfull!
