Also initially believing that The trio find out that Korda is still alive, but horribly disfigured and crippled by the car crash it was believed he was killed in. Only by using a cursed violin, and killing a victim with its razor-sharp bow, can Korda temporarily gain enough control of his hands to produce new music.

  • Ryan falls in love for a girl, a musician, whose former lover burned in a fire but is alive and raving mad.

    Sad but great episode. Ryan falls in love with a violin player, Leslie, whose former lover is back as a raving lunatic. He allegedly died in a fire but is back with a vengeance. The guy has also in his possession a cursed violin. The violin seems to temporarily heal him and make him play music.

    He uses this gift to kill of his former students and co-workers. Jack and Micki noticing the suspicious deaths try to piece everything together till it's too late.

    As I said great episode not as scary or gory as other episodes but I am giving a high rating because of the acting and story. It's also a great Ryan episode. Ryan always seems to fall in love with girls who have a dark secret which turns out to hurt him.

    The special effects were limited. The biggest effect is the recreation of the death of Korda, the musician who was the lover of Leslie, and his rebirth.

    While the ending is predictable to a certain point, I still enjoyed it quite much too bad we don't get a happy ending.moreless
