  • Jumping out of the screen terror.

    This is one of my favorate episodes of all time because as a kid it scarred me for one reason, the Norferatu vampire jumping out of the screen and it's physical appearence and omenious presence. The writers and director of the episode really did their homework because the humanoid bat creature has that same terrifiying and believable feel and look like the one from the original 1920's silent film as well as the remake from brilant movie director Wenzer Herzog.

    This whole episode has that same format like "The Purple Rose of Cairo" like in that film it has a charater that is from the movie and jumps off screen. But by the episodes nature it was real a love letter to honor the old horror films mainly starting from the silent era that have helped bring horror stories not just to the visual medium but also mainstream as well. Norsfertu has power over the audience back then and it still does over fresh new eyes.
