Quotes

Dr. Montague: How can a house, just a collection of bricks, wood, and glass have that much power over people?
Nell Crain: You've never been there.
Dr. Montague: Well, that's true. But see, neither have you, not for a long, long time. And I think that if you were to look at it today after all these years, empty in the woods, you'd find it's not a monster. It's barely even a house. It's a carcass.

Best Ending
14 October 2018 | by sarmstrong-89330See all my reviews

The ending of this episode was better than most horror movie endings. The episode slowly builds the tension right up until the horrific payoff at the end. This series isn't about the jump scares or predictible plot twists. It moves the viewer along with each character at a solid pace, the scares are all natural and intense. This series is really something special.
