  • This episode was better than past installments but was far too long. I might enjoy it more at 30 minutes instead of 60.

    this episode had all the right elements... Suspense? Check
    Fear? Check
    Blood? Check
    Danger? Check
    Death? Check
    Cannibalism? Double Check!!

    The problem I am finding with the series is that the writers/directors telegraph the plot allowing the viewer to get "there" sometime during the second act. Unfortunately, the viewer now knows what the punchline is yet has to sit through another 20 minutes of useless plot. It's a time waster really. Perhaps in the 70s this show might have been revolutionary. It might have even been advanced for the 80s when we were all hiding under the covers from Freddy Kruger. But in this era of horror porn films like Saw- Fear Itself just falls flat.
