    This episode was admittedly much more interesting, darker and all round better than the first. Although I am now thoroughly confused with the season. I am certain that I'd read several times that this series was not to contain a supernatural element, it was to focus on the horrors that humans can create themselves- and yet here we are with levitating beds, farmboys chanting latin and crucifixes falling off of walls at random... is it just me or is this certainly beyond the realms of reality? Regardless of my confusion, I loved it. The only annoyances for me in this episode were the acting 'skills' of the nymphomaniac patient.... non existent to an embarrassing and cringey extent, and the lesbian school teacher who hammed up the crying and guilt to the point where I found myself rather glad that she became the latest bloodyface victim!

    Hopefully the upward curve will continue and the series will go from strength to strength :)
