    This was a little boring, I thought. They seemed to have run out of "idea" right away.

    I thought the episode was alright. To me it started to get boring near the end.

    Family was great, this was boring near the end. I didnt really get why he let his friend live either.

    I liked this episode, minus the end. Well, not the end per se, but it felt as if it was going to end then went on for another 10-15 mins. The pacing wasn't all that good...writing-wise. The plot should have been carried out a bit further. I did find it pretty lame when he calls 911 and the operator's reply. The actor doing the voice sounded totally phony and the writing there was just bad. Halloween was last week (or whatever it was the operator told him)?? A little silly overall, but how could it not be with the subject matter? Still a good flick for the series.

    I thought the calls were just scenarios going through his head on the possible "answers"...

    Hey! Just so you know...The one who did The Damned Thing one and the zombie dancing one is Tobe Hooper, who once directed fine films such as 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' and 'Poltergeist.' And the 'Deer Woman' and 'Family' "person" is John Landis who directed 'American Werewolf in London' and 'Twilight Zone:The Movie,' as well as 'The Blues Brothers' and 'Animal House.' Just wanted to hopefully enlighten you to some fine filmmakers. You might be able to rent 'Imprint' at Blockbuster or Hollywood Video, but be forewarned...it contains some stomach-churning bits of torture and,um...well I'm not one to be a spoiler...

    I just saw the episode and the ending does scream sequel. A few things I had touble with was:
    1) Arjay Smith-Considering all his past roles, it was hard hearing him use more profanity in this one episode than most rappers do in a song.
    2) We never see Kerry's family. Nobody thought about killing them?

    Average episode. Atmospheric beginning in the funeral home followed by a rather generic and predictable second half.

    Michael Ironside was majorly hamming it up in his role as the ex-paedo vampire (who became a vampire by being killed by vengeful parents? what's with that?).

    I also had difficulty believing that the lead character would let his friend go as long as he promised to stay away from his family, good choice trusting a vampire who had already kidnapped your younger sister.

    7/10.

    Just saw it on REEL TV. Second best ep of the entire series IMO, after Screwfly Solution.
