  • One of my all time favorite episodes of the series!

    This episode is one of my favorites of the series which is why I gave it the highest marks. I'm sure it's not without it flaws (example: the picture drawn on Cathy's wall too obviously resembles Vincent) but Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman's acting was superb in it. The scenes when Catherine is surprised by a snake in her car, spiders in her bed, and the resurfacing on her facial scars could reflect on not only her fears of a possible curse but all the evil she has witnessed in her life that year. Her denial of Vincent could have meaning of her questioning if she deserves his love. Should she accept it or still cling to what she knows or thinks to be safe and true (the professor) or her perception of humanity or even her old ways, her past. Vincent rescuing her once again and the crushing on the shell means yes she deserves love and a renewal of her life.moreless
  • I's a decent episode but his is really not my favorite one.The interrest I had for that one is very average.I would tend to say:"What did the writer of that episode smoke before writing it???"It deserves the mark to pass but not much more.moreless

    This episode is about the power of vodoo,the power that a so-called wizard could have to harm or even to kill someone else just by using his magic.And since she investigates about a murder that would have been commited by a such vodoo wizard,Catherine becomes the victim of the vodoo magic.She sees some very weird items anywhere she is,because her spirit has been caught by the vodoo magic used by an evil individual she met besides while making her inquiry.She even rejects Vincent while she is caught by that magic.But finally,as usual,Vincent will come to her rescue and delivers her from the evil individual and his vodoo power.The subject of this episode is not uninteresting but it is very hard to really buy it because it is not realistic.However,there is still an certain interest.After all,a creature like Vincent and a world like the underground tunnel dwellers are not realistic too.moreless
