  • A good start, not a great one but better than expected...

    The plot was very good as was the setting:

    The Plot; An isolated community holds a monster prisoner, at the cost of cutting off all contact with the outside world, only letting people in to feed said monster.

    The Good; There was the use of the old Vampiric Folklore, remedies and countermeasures, something we don't see in most films today, and the suspense was well built.

    The Bad: The villagers claim that they have tried and failed for years to destroy the monster (a Vampire)but in the end with the outsiders, they manage to destroy it by doing nothing special (torching the place)something that could have done very easily on THE DAY In Plain Daylight. The ending was proper and creepy and it saved the episode for going to hell (no pun intended)but somehow overall the episode lacked the strength for a solid series opener...
