After several episodes of "Fear Itself" that did not inspire any fear in me at all, I was very pleasantly surprised tonight. It was like watching a good horror movie in just one hour.
All the good types of scares were included. There were jump scares, like when Grady suddenly sat up in the bed. There were uncomfortable scares, like the licking and the hacking off chunks of meat. The best kind of scare, terror at human behavior, was definitely present. For most of the show, I could not decide if Grady was just driven crazy by his trauma or if he was possessed by some demon. In a way, I wish that part, instead of the ending, had been left more ambiguous.
This is easily the best episode of this show. I was scared, grossed out, and genuinely interested in what happened to the characters.
