  • One of the best episodes of the bunch, i love the very spooky and chilly feel to this episode. When i read the summary of the episode i was looking forward to it cos I love the idea about Bloody Mary so when I watched the episode I wasn't disappointedmoreless

    The 46th episode of the series is really a special episode because in my opinion I love the dark side and fear it showed us. I love horror movies myself and the suspence the episode portrayed was intense and I love the mystery and the finding out that the ghost isn't really Bloody Mary but someone else looking for vengeance who believes they are Bloody Mary. Looking back at how Bloody Mary died was interesting and enthralling and it was quite sick to see all of that blood all over her and the idea of being buried alive is quite gruesome. Definetly worth seeing.moreless

    Wow, this was definitely one of the creepiest epsiodes yet in this series. I am not a huge fan of scary movies, but I usually can handle Ghost Whisperer's fright sequences. This one had my heart rate speeding up and my eyes being covered. I must say that thus far I've looked at Ghost Whisperer as a sort of comofrt show, always going through the same similar motions making me cry and laugh and sometimes giving me a little scare. This episode was definitely out of the ordinary for the series. I personally prefer the softer fright sequences over this, but it was an excellent episode nonetheless. The special effects were really cool in some parts (take for instance a bloody hand coming out of a mirror towards Melinda). The special effects in this season as a whole seem to be getting better as the shown goes from season to season. Overall, I feel like this is a very dark season so far, but I think it was time to go for a little change in the show. It's been pretty much the same for the past two seasons: ghost bugs Melinda, Melinda searches for a reason why, Melinda finds the reason using her numerous resources, Melinda tells loved ones who at first think she is psycho but soon realize that she is telling the truth, ghost crosses over. So, that being said, I'm glad to see that an effort is being made to keep us all interested.moreless
  • A good stand alone episode that continues a two show streak. More spooky episodes, instead of adventure episodes!

    Be honest, now. How many people went into the bathroom and did the Bloody Mary mantra after watching this episode?



    It was a fun spooky episode. I won't claim it was art, and it didn't really further the series narrative (although, we saw more of the public records ghost, and he was almost civil in a confrontational way...). Melinda was definitely a skeptic in this episode. I liked that. I'm not exactly sure why, it'll come to me...I'm sure.



    Episodes like this are most of why I watch this show. I'm not looking for ghost hunters...I'm looking for a good chill down my spine.moreless
  • One of the scariest episode!

    This episode was one of the scariest Ghost Whisperer episodes ever. This was a really good storyline. This was proubly the only episode were I literlly had a blanket and a pillow beside me in case I get scared which is very unusual for me because Ghost Whisperer episodes don't scare me to much but this one scared me! I think this season is going to have more episodes like this. I really like this episodes and I hope they have more really scary ones but not all the time though. Oh and I almost forgot they didn't have much Mel and Jim moments and I wish they had more.moreless
  • Bloody Mary....

    8.7
    I love watching this episode.... especially when it involves spookiness.... history from the past... It is always good and scary when it involves woman being a vengeance ghost. I love the final bit of the series, where the bells rings, and suddenly you can see the 'original' loody Mary appears Hmmmm... I wonder when are they going to air that episode?



    Melinda is really brave when she wants to confront 'Mary' by standing in front of the mirror. But thinking to myself, come on, she is surrounded by directors, people etc. There is no way that she can be scared easily..moreless
