Did You Know?


Russ Tamblyn appears in this episode as Nell's psychiatrist, Dr. Montague. He appears in the original film adaptation, The Haunting (1963), of the Shirley Jackson novel, The Haunting Of Hill House, as Luke Sanderson. In the novel there is a character by the name of Dr. John Montague who is an investigator of the paranormal. Russ Tamblyn also appears in the 1961 film West Side Story as Riff, the leader of the Jets and best friend of the male protagonist, Tony. West Side Story is a modern, musical adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. The characters of Tony and Riff in West Side Story are based upon the Shakespearean characters of Romeo Montague and his best friend, as well as cousin, Benvolio, respectively. This may be a quiet nod to both roles. See more »

The best episode ever
14 October 2018 | by gautamparagSee all my reviews

This episode alone was so better than some so called horror movie. It not about just scares... It's the slow burn terror that lingers on even after the credits roll .😨😨
