  • The Sense of Snow

    10
    Who'd of thought facination with snow can be scary. This is another one of my top ten favorate episodes of the show. There really isn't a whole lot to say about this episode, this is a tale that I found haunting from the amount of dread it gives you that leaves as much of an imprint on you as a foot print left in the snow. It's hard to say what the theme of this story really is, it's left to anyones interpretation, it's as enigmatic as the boy himself.

    What really drove it was the constant photography of the boy's emotional state along with the snow. As well as the great narration by Orson Welles, I found the voice to be both comforting and sinister.

    You really get a sense of dread as things progress further because were never sure or even know why the boy has this constant facination with snow and why his facination seems to be getting longer. Those final lines of narration at the end gave me a cold chill inside.
