  • A cursed cradle....with a history to boot!

    8.5
    In this episode, the cursed item is a baby's cradle that will give health to a sick infant that is in it providing the owners, the parents of the sick child, manage to kill seven people in water a certain amount of time. In a nice addition to the story, the viewer is shown that the cradle was originally owned by a passenger on the ill fated Titanic. It adds detail to the story that gets a typical viewer involved in the episode more than usual.



    An interesting point is how the couple react after each murder and the fact that they are getting closer to their goal. While the father starts to show signs of inner remorse, the mother is unwavering in the slightest and her conviction leads to a rather nasty finale. Even in that, there is a nice twist at the end that leaves the audience satisfied with what they have watched.



    Overall, one of the better episodes.moreless
