Episode Summary

Bottle of Dreams
A mysterious messenger brings a Coptic urn to the store, which bursts open when Micki and Ryan take it to the Vault. The gas from the jar puts them into a trance where they are forced to relive their most horrifying moments over and over until they die. Jack calls upon his friend, a fellow mystic named Rashid, to help him enter their trance and free them. To do so, Jack must both overcome the spirit of Lewis Vendredi, who arranged for the urn's delivery to gain revenge, and confront the spirit of his deceased son.moreless

  • Lewis "hostages" Micky and Ryan in an attempt to get Jack to trade places with him in Hell.

    Sure, there was a lot of clipping in this one (explained as an "epic death dream"). But suspending that knowledge, it was a fairly good episode...the play between Marshak, Rashid, and Lewis seemed less tongue-in-cheek...more like a real sci-fi or macabre thriller piece. One of the best episodes of the show.
  • It's the dreaded clip show....

    To be blunt, I'm not a real big fan of this episode due its nature. A writer's strike occurred while Friday the 13th was in production and, as a result, this episode consists mainly of clips from previous episodes. The clips are wrapped around the idea that a large vase has been delivered to the shop that is on the list of cursed items. When Micki and Ryan deposit the item in the vault, the vault doors swing shut and a green gas issued forth that forced the cousins to relive horrific events repeatedly until they die or are rescued.

    From my perspective, if you're an avid watcher of this series, this is a recap episode and contributes very little to the series. If, however, you are a new viewer and wonder about the feel and style of this series, this is an excellent place to start.

    For me, it's the first of these two options and thus a very disappointing episode.moreless
