  • Grady Edlund wanders back to his ranch and family after ten days in the wilderness. Is it Grady? Is it somthing else? Is it a combination of the two?

    Now this is more like it. A good, old-fashioned "monster movie" in a 45 minute format. This entry is short on story, but long on substance and chills. Aside from a few moments of Freddy Krueger style banter, about 2/3 of the way through, the Grady-thing continues to get creepier and more menacing with each shot. Doug Jones is superb with the first wave of makeup as he lets his mannerisms and eyes convey the building doom. Once he is in full blown makeup, he's a rather nasty demon that carries the weak script to an abrupt conclusion. If you're not looking for anything too deep, but just monster style fun, this is the episode.
